Vermeer was in pretty rough shape when we rescued him from the shelter... he had multiple parasites and needed many teeth removed. We're pretty sure he spent most of his time in a kennel before he came to us. He is the sweetest, most loving boy who gives hugs & has a cute lyrical howl when he hears a siren go by. We're thrilled he gets to know what it's like to be loved & cherished for all the rest of his days by his forever mommy & extended family... our buddy Honey is now his auntie!
