Bo Peep Posted December 1, 2008 Report Share Posted December 1, 2008 This dog was a "toss away" dog- thrown out in the back yard, very shy. He's attached himself to me so quickly I THOUGHT the best thing was to find a home right away, so he didn't have any more trauma. I went by the guys house. he has a 6 foot fence with a doggie door and is going to buy a crate. I already KNEW how well he treated his old dog that lived to be 17. He was looking and said "The right dog will come my way" Well, we took "Blue" to meet him. This dog does NOT like my BF or any man with a beard. Luckily, he ran in this guys lap- no beard. He is very timid- but not aggressive, not one tad bit!(lucky for me) I've been working like crazy on this dog- only had him a little less than a week. He walks on a leash well, sits when I stop (I know he won't be showing him.....the old obedience thing kicks in) this afternoon he stayed on a long line with 2 kids on bikes and the mom with another dog going by- GOOD BOY!!! His come is very slow. I don't have time to fix it. This is when I got him Today is the first time I saw his tail wag. The questions I have is, should I have put more training into him before placing him? Also, he is picking him up from the same vet we both use (Usher has shots due same day) right after the neuter (I think I mentioned HE is paying for heart worm testing and pills and micro chip) My vet knows him very well and I'm bringing in a little bit of my food to mix with what he feeds (science diet-ugh) am I doing this correctly? I thought that "Blue" would be more calm after the neuter and adjust better. He would give him all the lovin' he needs. Sleep on the bed...etc...
