[Character]Maru is a friendly and energetic 12 year old and you will hardly notice his age. He is in great health and has many years left to spend with you. He loves going for walks and is still quite active. Maru recently had surgery to correct cherry eye in both eyes and is recovering wonderfully. He has spent his whole life with Ran, the Dachs, so it maybe a bit of an adjustment for him to be an only dog, but with lots of love and assurance, he will be fine. We hope you will give Maru happiness for his senior years!
