Cruiser is such a cutie! This friendly boy loves to cuddle with his human friends, his nose tucked under their hands - or chin. He's also a curious sniffer, his nose perked up high and twitching to get a clue about what's being cooked for dinner. After dinner, he's ready for an evening snuggle on the couch, hoping for lots of petting.

An injury has handicapped this sweet boy. He is unable to walk on his back legs. His foster is giving him physical therapy, and is seeing some improvement in his leg strength. With a sling harness, he is easily helped to walk around the house and yard. He soon may try the dog version of a wheelchair, with two wheels attached to his back that will let him go for walks.

He is friendly to the new people he meets on his walks. He's a shy boy, but once he can sniff the humans, he'll love getting their head pats. Then back home, he's happy to hang out on the patio and chew his bones. He's getting along well with his doggie housemate, sniffing him curiously. He's a house-trained boy who's doing very well in his crate.

Cruiser will be such a loving companion for a patient, loving person, or a small family who can give him the walking assistance he may continue to need. He'll be so happy to curl up and cuddle with them. Come meet this lovable boy!
