Fulton is an old-fashioned gentleman in every sense of the word. He is calm, sweet, gentle, and affectionate with beautiful soulful brown eyes. Fulton is 9 years old and weighs about 60 lbs. Fulton wants nothing more than to be around a loving human. He lays at his foster mom's feet while she is on the computer or sitting at the table. He loves to walk up and lay his head on her knee and stand silently there - just enjoying the company.

Fulton is very happy to see people come to visit. He sings hoo-roo to them when they arrive (Fulton is a bass, not a tenor!) and wags and wags and wags his joy. He is always polite and never jumps up or runs crazy circles or is otherwise inappropriate. He greets the visitors warmly but politely.

Fulton is built more like a show dog than a field dog. He has a larger, more solid frame. However, he does not have that long pesky hair that show dogs have. His hair is very full and thick and very soft and is a delight to run fingers through. He is mostly white with an orange patch over both eyes and spots on his nose. His orange spots on his back are subdued but more pronounced on his legs, and he has an orange ring around the base of his tail.

Fulton gets along with all of the other dogs in the house and they accepted him from the first moment he arrived. He does not barge in when another dog is getting petted or fed but waits politely until it is his turn.

Fulton knows some commands and obeys willingly. He just loves to please people! He is fully house trained and never had an accident in his foster mom's home. He likes to go outside for a while each day, but is also content to be inside, especially if the weather is bad.

Fulton will make a great companion for someone who wants a calm, loving, gentle friend. He will be a devoted, affectionate companion.
