I placed AJ in his crate last night at bedtime. He whimpered a few moments. I left the music playing on the TV and he quieted down and slept all night. When I got up this morning his crate was dry. I placed him on his extended leash and he actually went to the door.
Outside he went potty right away then went back to the door. I am totally impressed. Once inside because I don’t know much about him I left him on his leash. He snooped around the house and played with both of his toys. He chewed and shook them. It was cute to watch. He loves the squeaker in them.
Soon he walked over to the door. I took him out and right a way he did his number two business and then came back to the door. I am very impressed. I will keep him on his long leash while inside until he and I know each other better.
He ate a few nibbles and then I put him back in his crate. He barked one time but quieted down. He is looking at me with those eyes. I think they are saying, I want to be with you.
In time I will leave the crate door open and take him off the leash but for now, trust is building. AJ and I are going to be good friends. I wonder what Al would have thought of him….
