"Evan" has been renamed and "Buddy" is doing great. It's feels like he has been with our family longer than this short while. I work at home and he sleeps at my feet most of the day and likes long morning and evening walks, but doesn't like the afternoon heat to much. He has fresh large bones for nibbling, which keeps him pretty occupied and his teeth clean and loves the occasional cheese treat. As he is settling in some of his little quirks are coming through, like he likes to hide his food bowl if he doesn't finish it right away and gets very excited when the vacuum is out—it's like his little friend. He is generally quite reserved and we figure it will take at least a year for him to completely come out of his shell, we think he was confined a lot in his world. He gets along well with all the other neighborhood dogs big and small as well as our cat. We are very thankful that we have him.
All the best.
