Abbey has a lot of energy for her 11-12 years of life. She is comical and will run and play with some of the other dogs her size. She has been gentle with our small dogs, but not good with the cats. She is very loving and loves to have attention bestowed upon her. Abbey's previous owner died 2 years ago and she and her brother, Buddy were taken in my a daughter, who did not do a very good job of caring for them. Abbey needs good flea treatment regularly, as she has a serious flea allergy.
