Hey everyone!! Union Boy will be called Jake. We went through different vowel sounds (aeiou) and he answers to the "a" sound and will run from the other room when i yell "Jake"...so "JAKE" it is. It's not as fancy as it could be but he seems to like it.
He is just as sweet as Diane said he was. Thank you for springing this good boy and for cleaning him up. He has met my girls...both Jazmine and Lyli-Mae seem to like him. He came home and ate a good supper. He takes treats very gently and tends to stay off the furniture unless invited. He has done all his business outside so far. He sits, shakes, and understands what "no" means. He seems a little interested in the bird and has retreated from the cage with a stern "no". His nub is a little long and when he is really happy it spins in circles. He is very mellow for a one year old, but that may change as he settles in.
Jake is really skinny...i dont think i have ever seen a dog this skinny...so we are going to give him 3 full meals a day (probably a few extra snacks) if anyone one of you have suggestions for "good" ways to make him gain weight, I would appreciate any ideas.
He is fantastic and he really needed us. He sooo deserves a "NEW LIFE"! I'm excited he is such a good dog, but at the same time I know this boy won"t be with me long, he will make anyone a fantastic dog!!
