We adopted mason on 7/1/12. He has brought so much joy to us and has become a part of our family. When we first got him he was shy and could not go up and down stairs because of his leg, which he had surgery on before we adopted him. We live on the 3rd floor of in an apartment and had no problem carrying him up and down. However now he goes up all three flights of stairs on his own and is getting very strong. He loves playing with his toys and cuddling. We are so happy to have him in our lives.
