We found lucky on st. Pattys day running down the road. His owner didn't want him anymore,he was thin and I believe locked up and ignored. He lives with my 3 kids,and 2 male dogs.he has lots of energy so probably best with a younger dog.we love him but he needs his forver home.he learns quickly and in sure would do great with an active family. He really is the sweetest dog. 45 lbs.
