Cortland is a 10-year old sweetie who is very gentle and friendly.

When he first came to us, he was pretty thin, especially in the back end, with hair loss and other sides of neglect.

He weighed about 17 lbs. on intake. But has built up muscle on a good diet and regular exercise, and he is now at a healthier weight of about 18 lbs.

He is very alert to everything going on around him.

Whatever I'm doing around the house, he wants to tag along and be right in the middle of.

Whenever you are ready to offer some attention, he is right there eager to receive it.

His house manners have been excellent and he is normally very quiet except for meeting strange new dogs. Then, his initial reaction is insistent barks, growls, and grumbles, but without tense/stiff body language. It takes him some time to get acclimated to new dogs but he will then settle down and live harmoniously with them.

Cortland's vet exam discovered some pretty severe dental disease. He recently had a dental cleaning with multiple extractions. Even with his mouth now more comfortable, he really doesn't play with toys much. Perhaps an occasional mild, short-lived session of tug of war, but that's about it.

He is house trained. He has learned how to use a doggie door. He did, however, do some competitive marking in the house when a new male dog arrived (before his neuter).

Coming up with tail a-wag, knowing that he is about to get some butt-skritches.

With some encouragement, he will come onto our laps, but always a little hesitatingly, as though asking first for permission.

Can I come up, please?

He likes to meander around outside... unless it is raining, and then he refuses to go out! Fortunately he loves walks, so if he is put on leash, he will go out the front door willingly, even in the rain. (As long as it is not pouring.)

He feels so much better than he did just a short while ago!

Cortland knows how to give "High Five" and to sit on command for his dinner or a treat.

Just some snuggly chillin' in the evening...

Getting along nicely with everyone.

He is waiting to make some special person the love of his life.
