He is already vaccinated and neutered.
Here's what Kilt's friends at Center for Animal Rescue and Enrichment of St. Louis think of him:
Kilt does not like to smile for the camera. To get a decent picture of him, one has to take, on average, 10 pics with silly noises and plenty of treats. It's too bad, because he's so handsome. Guess you're just going to have to visit him at the shelter. Kilt came into the shelter with his girlfriend Gaelic. He's super sweet with his people friends and treat-motivated.
