I came to AGaG in 2021 after being surrendered by my former breeders. I am grateful to have found such lovely people who have taken great care of me and my medical issues. My foster family has been amazing and showered me with love, which I truly appreciate.

The doctors say I suffer from kidney disease and high blood pressure. I am not sure what those are. My foster mom gives me pills with my meals, which has helped stabilize those issues.

I also have radial nerve damage – what the heck is that? – which causes me to limp. My foster mom also gives me medication for that, which has helped. When I walk, though, I have a terrible limp, but it doesn’t stop me from galloping around the yard, which I love to do!

Many people say I have been through a lot, but I don’t let it get me down. I am a happy guy! I love to play, run around in the yard and take naps. I also have a big appetite, and my foster mom says I’m quite vocal when it’s time to take my pills and eat.

As the song goes, “Don’t worry, be happy, ” which is exactly what I am!
