This is Buddy who arrived just this past Saturday and he is awesome. He has been a very busy gentleman and has settled in quickly. So here's what we have discovered thus far:
We have a little shop in Lockhart and he loves the attention he gets from folks who drop in, even kids. Buddy goes out to do his biz on a leash just fine and has not had any accidents. He goes off leash at home and needs a couple extra minutes to finish up. I bumped his little foot with my big one and he went belly up and peed a bit but we got past that. He's great with our dogs but really wants to chase cats. Buddy is a great co-pilot in the car, not a barker. He is quickly learning the porch steps and really enjoys the yard. He was just fine alone and inside with the other dogs while we were out for 3 hours. Buddy likes to be close by but not underfoot and will share lap privileges. We have not used the crate but were told he's OK with it. Buddy loves to snuggle on the bed and have his back scratched. He is definably a pack kind of guy and I think he would grieve if he did not have his critter and human friends. Thus far we have not seen an issue with incontinence and will be watchful.
