04/15/17 13:56 Basic Info Bash is a one year old DSH whose owner could not afford his medical costs for his seizures. He was last brought to a vet a month ago.

There is no simuli that is noticed that causes Bash to sometimes swat and sometimes ignore strangers. When he is playiong with adults he is very rough and uses his nails. He has grown up with a child in the home who was 8 years old. He is playful with the child and is a little rough but not as rough as when he plays with adults. He has not been around other dogs or cats before. He has bitten his owner once while being over stimluated by the petting but did not break the skin. He has never bitten an animal before.
