We are so lucky to have brought him home to join our family. He adapted pretty quickly to our family life and to Buffy. In fact, Buffy was like a mother to him for several months. It was so sweet to watch them together.
The hardest thing was house training him, like many Havanese, but he was already 5 months old and did not have a clue how dogs live in a house and go outside to do their business. he was just used to peeing and pooping whenever and wherever he felt like it - as all the other dogs did where he came from.
On top of that, his gut was a mess because of all the parasites and the necessary meds needed to rid him of them. Once I asked the Vet about canine probiotics, he began to get "normal" after about a week on the probiotics. Before that, it was butt-bath city around here. Yuck!
