Not sure how old he is, I adopted him 5 years ago when his owner died. Was told then he was a older dog. Just got him back from vets, they had to pull 10 teeth . I feel so bad for him, he is drugged up, I know when they wear off he is going to be sore. Looks like I better figure out how to turn on the stove ,don't cook for myself but will try for him.
