I do not know how old this dog is but she has been with me for about two years. A friend of mine was unable to keep it any longer, so I am giving him away. This dog has some problems, but you would never know it, unless you had him for a while. The dog seems to have lost his sense of smell or he does not see well. He gets around fine, is very friendly, and is half way house broken. I say half way, because if he gets excited he forgets to let you know he has to go outside. He a very good dog. He is not a crazy barker either. He barks only when he has to. I don't know what breed he is either. His shots were kept up to date; however, you should get that done again. If you decide to take him, you must keep him. So only serious inquiries, and people who do not have other dogs. He has been around children fine. However, none of the kids have mistreated him so I don't know if you got brats who like to pull on dogs tails what he would do. I have had dogs all my life, and most dogs get annoyed at certain things. They are just like people, and have their own personality. Because of the sense or seeing concern I am not charging a re-homing fee.
