He’s a difficult dog, mistreated by his first owner and taken out of his home by Animal Shelter.He still doesn’t trust strangers, but for us he can be very sweet.

Update october 2012:Unfortunately his demons got too big a hold of him and we had to say goodbye to him on february 21, 2012. I still miss him every day.
