I am also happy to announce, after his yearly check up and vaccine booster on Wednesday...he has put on a whole 8.2 kilo's since he became my child. He was a very thin 29kg the day I picked him up, and apparently had already stacked on 2kg in the months he'd been at the shelter, so he really was an emaciated little man.The drive home from the shelter with the dog who didn't care where he was going, yet leaned on me the entire way.As you all know, he's grown masses of confidence, a whole heap of trust, and best of all, he actually smiles these days. He gets a big goofy grin and his eyes light up, instead of the fear and dread thing he had going on back in the day.
He even 95% got over his on leash aggression, and can be walked safely on and off leash in public.It wasn't all roses with Phoenix...All in all, he's a changed dog, and all for the better. I couldn't imagine life with out my big Boofer Woofer, and I even mostly tolerate his drool all over my black clothing.
...and here's some sillyness I just had to share ;)
