He loves going on walks and would probably like to go to the farmer’s market or soccer games with his new owner. He has ear infections that we are treating. We suspect these are allergy related so he is on hypo-allergenic food and meds for allergies. His owner will have to keep an eye on his ears. ***This form is meant as an overview. As always, take caution around dogs, especially dogs that are new to you, and especially with other animals and children.
