This dog came into my life when he was around six years old, and he was the sweetest, most loving dog I ever met. He was extremely well-behaved and very rarely got into trouble. At most, he would get into the trash can now and then. He did have a hereditary form of mange that had to be treated, but other than that, he rarely had health issues and would shed a lot, as he had a thick coat. We could take him into a pet store or have him around people and never once had to worry about him doing something he shouldn't. He was also really good with our younger dog and taught her a lot--she picked up quite a few habits from him.
