Shultzie is my miracle pup. At 1 day old he stopped breathing. I tried cpr but nothing. Holding him up to the foot of the Cross in my home, praying for his healing, he gasped a breath and is now 15 yrs old. He does suffer from seizures as a result of the lack of oxygen to his brain, but otherwise he lives a normal life. He loves to play and cuddle. When playing eye level with him, and gets excited, he play bites my nose. Wonderful, loving and gentle. In the evening, while reclining watching TV or reading, he rests his head on my ankle or places his paw in my hand. He also has the cutest howl.
