A little short on stripes or markings.

We thought of naming him Covid, but thought it might be a little un PC. So we still need a name.

Bramble isn't exactly happy with the new corner.

He is sweet, but very skittish. Plus they say he is an escape artist, so we are leaning towards Casper. So original for an all while dog.

He's cute! How did Bramble react to him and him to Bramble? What does your son think of him? He looks like a Toby, or Ollie..

I argued for Houdino too. I think my mom has decided on Casper, hoping the friendly part will wear off on him. He is VERY shy.

The introduction has been a little bumpy. She went for him twice, but the first time the ecollar convinced her to back off, the second time I told her no and she backed off. I am going to reach out to the trainer this week to see if there is any way at all we can have a session. The new guy hasn't been socialized either.

My son isn't interested in this one. Bramble really is it for him.

You must be a saint to take on a shy skittish dog.

He's really sweet. I think he will grow in cofidence. From what we can tell he wasn't exposed to much.

Sounds like it will take a little while for the two dogs to warm up to each other. At least you're going slow with that, which some people don't do. Sounds like he has some similarities to Laszlo, not exposed to much. Did you settle on Casper as the name?

We're trying it. It does seem to fit him as he's a little ghost on the house.

I made a mistake this morning and over corrected Bramble. I though she was going in for a bite, and yelled NO, right as she dropped into a bow. Urrrgh!
