Eros was acquired from a kennel life as a mature dog. He would have made quite a name for himself if he had had the proper, normal beginning. He knew so very little when we first got him. It was almost like having a puppy. His development has been most gratifying, from teaching him how to play to being a wonderful companion and a most dependable, obedient animal. Never on a leash unless the occasion demands it. His outstanding physical characteristic is his profuse coat of a rich mahogany color.
