Burdock "Doc" - Florida

Burdock (Doc for short) and his 4 brothers and sisters were dumped at a Louisiana kill shelter when they were only five weeks old. They rode a rescue transport all the way to Florida, and are now living with older dogs and 3 kitties. Doc is paper trained and learning to go outside to potty. Right now he still sleeps in a big pile with his siblings, but he's just about old enough to learn to sleep all night in a crate. Doc is a sweet, shy boy who weighs 7 pounds. He is now 10 weeks old, so should reach about 15-17 pounds by adulthood. Doc has a full tail, and his ears are large and "dropped" (like a Beagle's). We think he might have had a different Daddy than the other pups, because he also has very stubby legs and big feet. In this picture of Doc he is posing pretty with his little brother Indi.
