Now that Mason had been here for a week, I can fill you in a bit on his personality. First of all, he is absolute dream!! Whomever the lucky person is that gets to adopt Mason is going to be so, so happy. He is very friendly with strangers, but protective in his yard, easy going, submissive, playful - but not crazy, is very well mannered and listens like a champ. Honestly, he has only has two minor issues that could use a refresher course in obedience. Other than that, he's super great. He gets along fabulously with both marvin and sasha...actually he is a perfect playmate for marvin as he is only 2 months younger than my boy and has almost the exact same disposition, and; he loves to go outside and play. Mason is definitely not a couch potato and and will tell you when he is getting board. A few of his signature moans and a slight tap at the front door are his cue. Him and Marv do laps around the yard, play tug o'war and box a few times every day. He even gets Sasha to run around so add miracle worker to his list of adjectives..
He is still very vocal but thankfully its not at all like his constant howling on day one. Now its more like he's just carrying on a conversation with all of us. He crates very easily and goes right to sleep, but I did figure out he prefers a cushy blanket in there with him. Earlier in the week I found him snoozing away peacefully in Marvins crate that is all plush... So that night he got a big thick blanket and he now goes in without a problem or even a peep at night. He doesn't tear up his blanket, hasn't been destructive at all and even now, I can see him in the other room laying in his favorite spot. On the doggie bed in front of the Christmas tree.
I've been working on getting his skin, coat and digestion back to healthy now that he isn't covered in fleas so stay tuned, and get your apps in. He's a keeper.
