Berdie was a rescue who was abused and as a result of closed head injuries has seizures. They are under control with out medication at this time. He is also missing a couple teeth so his tongue sticks out at times. He sleeps on my pillow, loves to go out with me and has learned to play. He and my big dog, cat and family members are buddies but he can be rather fearful of others (understandable) given his history). We adore him.
