Age:                                                 estimated at 1 to 1.5 years old
Good with dogs:                       YES!    Would likely do best in a home with another dog that is confident and can help                                                                   him overcome his fears and skittishness .  He loves his furry foster brother August the                                                               Weimaraner
Good with cats:                        not tested yet but has no reaction towards them on walks
Good with children:               Yes but he would prefer older, calmer children that are not that active or noisy.  
Energy level:                               medium.  Loves a couple of good walks daily.  He loves to chill out on the couch after                                                                    his  walks.  
Vetting accomplished:          combination vaccine,  heart worm test. Rabies vaccine, micro-chip, neuter, monthly                                                                   preventatives

Heartworm status:                light positive.  Going to be starting a 30 day course of Doxycycline antibiotics                                                                                  soon which will help to speed up the death of the few adult heart worms in his                                                                                 system.  He is also on monthly Heartgard.  No other treatment is necessary and he                                                                       should  test negative for heart worms in 6 months to a year.

Crate trained:                           yes
leashed trained:                       yes
basic obedience:                      yes but needs more work.  Lucky is a bit skittish so working on basic commands is a bit                                                               challenging.  He'll be easier to work with once he gains more confidence and feels safe.

Energy level:                               high.  All puppies are high energy and require a huge amount of time,                                                                              training and energy.
