Gurgi I'd say is approximately 1.5 years old. No one knows... He originally came from an abusive home - physically and mentally abusive. He'd be locked up in the crate longer than any dog should need to endour. They let their child toss him against walls! No doubt he'll have a fear of hands, feet, movements, etc... A lady took him in, but later had a child and could not give him the time he needed and so she allowed her sister to find the dog a new home.
And as of Sunday, I will be his new home
What's wrong with the dog? Basically nothing. He is house trained, he is crate trained, he rarely barks, he is great with small children - all despite his terrible ordeal! He is a loveable, loving, bouncing ball of fur!! He loves to RUN RUN RUN!!! He is very skittish, but that is easy to overcome
positive reinforcement to show all those "evils" are nothing but harmless as a feather! He is not nuetered, and has only dewormed and rabies shot (which is fine). He doesn't like male dogs, but that's not too worrysome - eventually we'll get him neutered, and socialized properly!
I bought him this
random color (this'll be cool!)

And this for the RUN RUN RUN part
And yes, they named him GURGI after the comical character in The Black Cauldron movie of the 80's.
