Cheers has recently come back to SAAP after being adopted as a puppy 8yrs ago. He loves butt scratches and is perfectly house trained. Cheers is struggling with all the changes, so he will need a patient adopter who will give him ample time to settle into a new life. He is currently taking anxiety medication to help him through these transitions. After a few weeks back with SAAP, Cheers is beginning to slowly build a relationship with his current caretakers. He is still a very stressed pup, but he has relaxed enough to curl up on the couch and nap near people, and he happily accepts affection.

Cheers seems genetically predisposed to lumps and bumps. He did have one cancerous mass that was completely removed upon his return to SAAP. He has quite a few other lumps that the vet has determined to be fatty masses that are not of concern. Many of his siblings have had similar diagnoses.

Cheers has not reacted well to other dogs or young children, so at this time we are recommending he be adopted as an only pet to a household without kids.
