My mother ended up with him after a friend's, friend died of cancer. She has been placed into a Nursing Home & we are allergic to him. He's at least 10yrs old. Gets along with cats very well. Sits up like a meer cat. Needs a fenced in yard so he's able to run. Likes being petted & happy to please. Can be very much a couch potato also. He is a mixed breed, curent weight is 32#.
