Cortland's normal quiet dignity gets eclipsed by happy energy when you ask him if he wants to go for a W-A-L-K. He will run to where the leashes are hanging,
wagging his enthusiasm. Once outside, he trots confidently, eagerly sniffing to find out what the neighborhood has been up to lately. If you break into a jog, he will
keep right up with you; even at 10 years old he can run circles around you whenever he wants. Cortland wasn't always so happy. When he
was at the shelter, suffering from dental disease, skin infection, and a ruptured anal gland, things were pretty bleak. But within a couple of days in his new
foster home, he realized that food, pats, attention, and free-ranging time in the sun were all plentiful, and life was good. Now 18-lb. Cortland is seeking a
permanent home with someone who likes to give and receive gentle affection. If you have no other dogs, that is just fine with him, because strange new dogs do take
a while to get used to--and require initial barking, growling, and grumbling. Cortland is well behaved and reliably house-trained, either with a dog door or a
regular schedule. If it is cold and raining, however, or if there is thunder anywhere nearby, you'll need a leash and some insistent coaxing to convince him to go out, but then he will
usually do his business in record time. Cortland is a gentle dog who watches you, listens to you, and wants to please you.
