We took Xander in when a cousin had to rehome him. He's very vocal (think Chewbacca), cute, and intelligent. He needs lots of exercise. We were childless when we took him in, and we happily met all of his needs. He exceeded ours. Now, we have young twins, and he just isn't getting the attention he deserves. He's 8, and he still has so much love to give and receive.
