I have developed several autoimmune diseases. I do not really want to give him up but he needs more than I can provide him as far as activity. It's not his fault, it is my health. He is initially very shy with men but will then sit in your lap if not forced. He is a man of action, extremely handsome and athletic. We have done a lot of sports, coursing, dock diving, agility. He is greying on his muzzle.
