Thank you for your replies!
In response to some questions:
Farley has been on the heavier side for most of the time we've had him, except when we found him and he was very skinny from combination of youth and stray life. He was at his heaviest in the third picture, overweight and put on a diet. He currently weighs about 22 pounds. Still on the heavier side, but a little lighter than in that pic. We had a Pug who weighed 22 pounds for most of his life, too.
He's pretty short and his legs are *very* short. I would say that he's between 10 and 11 inches at the withers.
How he runs: he absolutely has the bouncy gait one poster describes.
His temperament: Farley is the most laid back, submissive dog i've ever encountered. He's low energy except when he's not, if that makes any sense - he's very active and likes to do 'dog' things...has an incredible sense of smell, rolls around in grass, poop, smelly things; he's extremely intelligent and perfectly behaved, no neuroses. Super easy to train. He's attached to us but is overall very independent. Our other dogs have always been 'velcro dogs' in constant need of attention, but when Farley wants attention he will ask for it. Most of the time he is content to lay on the floor and often even prefers it.
I will try to find some more pics of him to post later. Thanks a lot for your input guys!
