From the Foster:

Ravioli, or Oli as we affectionately call him, was surrendered from a breeder, and was in rough shape when he got here. He took a bit to warm up to home life and be comfortable with being touched, but he’s become a sweet, independent, and easy going dog, who loves a good head scratch. He has an adorable underbite which shows off his few remaining teeth. He loves to follow his foster brother around the house and had learned a lot of routines and good behavior from him. He definitely likes being around other dogs and would do great in a home with a “sibling” to pick up the rules from, but I think he’d be happy as a solo dog too, Just give him time and patience to learn the routines . He’s still getting house trained, and tries to mark in the house, but we’re working on that and it’s getting better (I expect neutering will help too!). Also because of his kidney issues he needs to be let out more often, although he does not have accidents if left in his crate for long periods or at night.  He's a great sleeper at night and loves his crate for naps and bedtime. You can tell he spent a lot of time outside in the past, he loves wandering around the yard sniffing things and he’s even getting adjusted to the cold. Overall he’s such a sweet boy and I know he’ll make a family very happy  

Ravioli is in the early stages of kidney disease and needs to be on a prescription diet for life and have medical management with your family veterinarian.
