From the Foster:

Porter  is extremely sweet, friendly and very smart. He's very mellow but is also playful. He currently lives with two kids (4 & 8) and an old grumpy Min Pin.  

He has some separation anxiety, though I believe he's totally trainable. If we leave him food right when we leave he doesn't bark. When we get home he gets super excited and barks and jumps up on people when they come in the door.   I checked no for crate trained above but he kind of is, we just were not consistent with it.

About a year ago  Porter  had Immune Mediated Polyarthritis (idiopathic). He was treated with Prednisone to decrease inflamation, Tramadol for pain, and Metronodazole (antibiotic) to treat diarrhea and GI inflammation that that he experienced at the same time as the IMPA. He hasn't had any issues since the IMPA, not sure if it could occur again or not as we're not certain what the cause was. He was treated at the U of M Vet Medical Center (we have all of the paperwork and can email this too).
