"Cole was a Belgian Shepherd / Newfoundland mix breed dog. He was absolutely the smartest, and most gentle dog I have ever known. He displayed a true empathy for the human condition and made human friends with whoever he touched. Even people who had a fear of dogs all their lives loved Cole. He stood about 28" at the shoulder and weighed about 85 lbs. Unfortunately we lost old Cole last year to bone cancer in the leg. He was a true friend and will be truly missed."
