Rambo strikes me as a such a lovely gentleman, and he comports himself with the easy dignity of a Greyhound. However, as he has begun to settle in, he's starting showing a little bounce in his step, more like Fred Astaire than my original impression of him, Laurence Olivier.
He loves walks and will surprise you with the pace he keeps, considering he's an older IG. Hah! He easily can outpace me. And, be warned, if he gets excited about something, he'll take off, dragging me with him--not ridiculously fast, just insistent. I think he would enjoy more walks on a regular basis than he is getting at my house.
I have been giving him a little extra food, since he always acts like he's still hungry. He LOVES the treats I make for them, peanut butter and bits of dog treats in a kong like toy.
Since living in his foster home, he has learned to go under the covers when we go to bed. Sometimes he even snuggles.
Rambo loves to lay out in the yard in catch some rays. He also loves going to the dog park and wandering around smelling everything.
He is great in the car. He has never pooped or peed in the house. He has been nothing but a gentleman with my dogs--he's incredibly laid back, so kind and so sweet. He is more interested in running around with my IG than my IG is with him, so I'm sure he'll be great with other IGs.
