Adam is the more outgoing of this brother-sister team. They were in a large play yard when we came to pick him up. I’d met him a couple days ago to do a SAFER test on him. He was a little tricky to catch then. Today he came right up to me and let me slip a lead on him. He rode well once we got rolling. He settled into his room at PMFC immediately and was welcoming with the rest of our pack came parading by to say “howdy!”
He arrived only minutes ago, I’ll get pictures soon.
We’ve had a couple of days to get to know this sweet fellow, and he to know us. He is quite bright, learning his commands quickly, He shows no interest in trying to go over the fence,although he loves running in the yard. When he’s done playing he races first to the back door of the house, wanting in, then he comes back to his room, kennels easily and sits for his treat. Such a good boy!
A couple more days and Adam is settling in nicely. I still use a long lead when I let him out into the yard, but I let him run freely now, I’m confident he won’t cry to climb over a fence or pick a fight with any of the other dogs. He’s quite a gentle dog, actually.
I stopped using the safety lead a few days ago, Adam will readily come when I call him now and I’m not worried about him scaling a fence. He knows where the food come from, and get fed regularly.
Adam came through his surgery well and is recovering nicely. So far he has not been licking his incision so I have not re-coned him. Per my request, Cedarwood coned him after surgery, but he quickly kicked the come off – while going ballistic about wearing it. Once it was off, he went to sleep and remained calm.
Adam can be clear across the yard, or up on the back porch but if I call “Adam, COME!” he comes racing to me. What a good boy!
Adam and Cyrus have been sharing a kennel. They actually prefer it that way (they are siblings) and they get along just fine. I have to stay on station when I feed them. They each have a bowl and whoever gets done first will try to go after the others dish but there are no fireworks between them. I distract the first until the second is done.
Adam makes SUCH a fuss when he needs to go out in the yard. As long as I heed his demand, he will keep their room spotlessly clean.
Adam may have been exposed to Parvo while at Cedarwood for neutering. I have a Parvovirus test on hand and will test him on July 5th. So far he’s showing no symptoms.
No symptoms appeared, so I did not test. Adam goes for his Health Certification today so he can Transport on Thursday the 16th. He passed his Certification.
We got word today that Adam is being reunited with his sister and best friend, Luna (known to us as Cyrus). The family who adopted her has decided to adopt him as well. She looks very happy to have him back!
