Any public visits: walking the neighborhood and meeting my niece and nephew- 5 and 7 years old. Did really well, let them cuddle with him respectfully.
Please tell us about the personality of the dog: This is one great old man. He really would be a great and easy transition to any family. He is older and goes slow down the stairs (just cautious) so he probably would like to settle down in a home that has little stairs. That being said, he still has a lot of spunk and personality left in him. Last weekend we went for a 30 minute hike at a forest preserve and he literally jumps around in excitement when he gets to go on car rides. He is food motivated- loves all kinds of treats and bones, and just grazes on his real food. He is also a cuddle bug, especially at night, and loves to meet new people.
