Mikey was surrendered as a stray, so his past behavior around dogs is unknown.
Due to Mikey’s current leg fracture, he is not a candidate for a dog-dog assessment at this time. All introductions to other dogs should be conducted slowly, allowing Mikey to interact at his own pace, and be under supervision.
