From the Foster:

Ami  predominantly lived in his kennel for most of his 11 year life. The owner was home very little day or evening. He had adequate health care, but little companionship, outdoor time and frequently chose his kennel even when door was open. I believe he now deserves a home where the owner is mostly home, where there is a fenced yard, so he can roam and discover and enjoy freedom. He is very sweet, barks very little, is very very smart. He is a bit of a picky eater. One has to keep tissues and food outside his reach. He is cleaver and will get to them. He is a great sleeper. He travels very well. He walks beautifully on the leash. He is lazy and lies around, until there is action. He likes to play fetch and is very agile. He just learned to walk steps and now rarely stumbles. He looks to his foster brothers and learns from them.

He has issues with urinating in the house, but not always. Have not been able to determine why or when in the six weeks we have had him, but the more disruption in our lives, the more accidents he has. With 'timed eliminations' he would probably do much better, which is what we are starting today.

Ami  has a heart murmur, which he has had most of his life, without noticeable symptoms. He needs teeth cleaning and it appears he has a broken molar, which needs extraction. In spring 2019, he had his first bout of pancreatitis. He has been fine since being treated, but he will need to remain on a restricted diet, which includes prescription food.
He has begun to tremble frequently. Occationally it can be potentially anxiety, but it can occur while he is calm and lying comfortably. I wonder if he is in pain ( maybe the broken molar), but he was put on a pain med and it did not seem to affect the trembling. Trembling is not a daily occurrence, but certainly happens weekly at this point.
