Two and 1/2 year old male. Loves people, especially children. He does well with other dogs as he lives with 2 other large female dogs. Never been cat tested but I don't think it would be a good idea. He had cherry eye when young but had surgery to have them tacked and have not been a problem. He had surgery on his front elbow for a bone that didn't form properly and it was removed so it didn't rub against the joints. It has helped but remains stiff so he has a little limp. It doesn't hold him back as he loves to run and play a little too lazy for walks unless there are kids in the neighborhood for him to visit. At times he does require an anti-inflammatory if it's over used. Doesn't like to be crated/confined but we are working to correct that.
