Thank goodness for people like you. It breaks my heart to think of the poor thing at a shelter. He looks like a sweetheart : )

Good luck to the both of you!

Lucky Max! He'll learn about love from you and how to play from Chico and Cali. Poor little guy, I hope he improved with the spraying.

How wonderful He's lucky to have you! What better way to cool off in the summer than a nice haircut, ehh?

Congrats on your new addition!
Have you tried using any calming aids? That might ease his transition a bit & maybe he'll ease up & let you groom him. It'll probably even help his marking! They now have a calming collar (see link below) that lasts up to 30 days. I recently bought one for my Papillon as he has a tendency to mark like crazy & he also is quite the yapper! I wasn't quite sure that it'd work but I decided to give it a shot as it said that it'd help with excessive barking & inappropriate marking. I saw improvement within the first 5 days of use. Then my father took it off to put the bark collar on & immediately we noticed more & bigger puddles. He went on a rampage of marking everything the day it was off.. It went right back on after that! Its worth a shot.

Also, its rather long so you could cut it in half & put the part not in use in a plastic bag to save for the next month. Punch holes in the plastic & insert a string or ribbon..

Progress With Max

Wow, he's a smarty.
Last night I spent about 10 minutes alone with Max. I had DH take the other 2 upstairs with him because I just can't train with them present. They stick their noses into everything trying to get treats. Chico was so funny, sitting everytime I told Max to sit, as if to say, " what's the big deal, I'm sitting, give me a treat!"

After they went upstairs, I took tiny pieces of chicken and worked on the command sit.

Max got it right away and now sits on command. A simple thing, but I felt like Victoria Stillwell LOL.

Nan- how wonderful! And when you find that perfect forever home, it is so rewarding! Please keep us updated on his progress. You could always try a belly band to make him aware of marking and save your furniture. Just becareful you remember to take it off. My first foster a few times it happened and then I just said to heck with it and what would you know, no accidents!

How are your two handling the new camper?
