Sorry it took so long for me to send an update on Sawyer aka Nelson. As you can see from the pictures he fits right in with our brood. He will not let me out of his sight. He loves to ride in the car and does very well on a coupler with Tazz. He never would answer to his name so my husband and I just kept calling out names till he came running to Nelson maybe his original family’s last name was that, who knows, but he comes every time. He is only afraid of BIG boots, maybe someone kicked him as a puppy. He loves all of his new playmates and all the room to run. He saw his first moose but treed it from behind the couch inside the house!! He also brought home a beaver bone which took him only 3 hours to decide where to bury it!
I had to have a new microchip put in because either the one your agency had put in quit working or it never worked to begin with but he is chipped now. He has already been to see Dr. Baetsle, our vet, who said Nelson was a keeper. I even have my new credit card with the picture ” Nelson Smiling” on it. Thank you so much for giving me the chance to adopt this loving, adorable dog. I promise he will be loved with every breath I take.
Some pics of the pup…
My friend that used to be a sled dog handler said that he is the most well socialized and secure puppy that he has ever seen, which means that you and Tammi obviously put a lot of effort into what you do. Thank you for that! I come across people every now and then that are on the prowl for a pet. I will definately refer them to your site!
Apollo has had his third shots and rabbies vacines. The vet would like him to come back in one month for a follow up visit. Apollo is the same laid back happy dog he was with you. He has learn to go potty outdoors and has 3 cats as room mates along with Shasta who is almost 14 years old. He visits my Mother in Law and the other residents at the Care facility and is happy to go up and give them a chance to pet him. I have had many people wonder what kind of dog he is. They can not believe he is a mutt. He has learned to walk next to met without pulling. Has graduated from needing to be in a crate at night and sleeps next to my bed. Next week we are going to the snow, his first vacation trip. But tomarrow I’m taking him to the hospital where my Mother in Law needs to have some test done. He will be certified in 8 months once he has lived with me for 6 months and is 1 year old. He does know how to bark but has figured out that not something to do in my house for no reason at all. Matthew’s piano teacher loves him, Apollo gets to lay down next to a grand piao while Matthew plays away, he falls asleep. He is such an easy dog so far. I hope he starts to like the jogs and walks I take him on . . . he does not mind them but is happy to come home and sleep. Until next time
