Pet Description: Hello, I'm Belden! I'm small and will probably be under 25 lbs when full grown, but I am a big boy in my head. I LOVE TO EAT, but it has to be canned food, because my throat is shaped differently than other dogs'. It's called "megaesophagus." I'm lucky though, mine is not as severe as it could be and don't need to be held upright when I eat. Good thing, because I prefer running to sitting, though I will settle down for snuggles occasionally. I'm pretty playful, so I'd love to go home with older kids and other dogs who are playful.
