Vallecito's Birth Notes:
This young man is a large male with a large head.  He is a solid colored silver sable with a black mask showing. He shows white on his paws only and a very little white on his lower lip with a black tipped tail and deep black pigmentation.  This boy was quiet and did not struggle when turned over on his back.  



When i saw this dog he was skinny and still young (11 mo). His owners said he had skin issues. He stayed in the kennels and ate my dogs diet with vit/min and real meats. He got wormed and when he left he had no skin issues. Though he did have a pinkish color in some areas, i saw no itching or biting. He had no health issues when i saw him.
