Linus is such a sweet boy, and he's hoping that because he's so incredibly sweet and cute, that you'll give him a chance despite his medical condition.  Linus has an issue with his trachea that causes him to cough when he gets overexcited.  After extensive testing to diagnose the condition, we have come to realize that this sweet boy just needs to stay calm and relaxed, then he's just like any other dog.  He's about 6 1/2 years old and had a tough life.  He was removed from a cruelty situation last summer and regardless of how he was treated in his past, he doesn't hold anything against anyone.  Linus is a big pile of mush that adores people, is fine with other dogs that don't get him all worked up, and he wants nothing more than to plop on a pile of blankets and rest his head on a soft toy.  There is no medication required for his condition, just good care.  He's so deserving of a great home and with a family that will spoil him silly, like he should be!
