From the new owner of Rollo, now Sam:
Sam is a great dog! He is getting 4 walks a day, 2 regular walks and 2 off leash runs. It's a good outlet for all his energy - he's always ready for a snooze on the couch after.
At first, he constantly followed Caleb & I around the house but now he feels comfortable enough to stay on the couch as we move through the different rooms and floors. He does have a bit of separation anxiety when we crate him to go to work but we always come home at lunch for a visit and he seems to be getting better each day. He's already been on the subway and did great! He's also interacted with many dogs and seems to get a long just fine. He's not afraid of people and loves to give kisses, we're just working on letting him know when they've had enough!
He's been to the vet and is a healthy little guy although he's still a bit under weight, so we are free feeding him. He is an incredibly fast learner. He's learned to play fetch and "leave it" and he's quickly learning how to walk properly on a leash, stopping and sitting at all corners. We've given him a couple baths and brushed him teeth to get them sparkling again and he's been a very good boy through all of this. The hound in him makes him very easy to distract with a treat! People constantly stop us on walks and tell us what a good looking dog he is. After watching him for the last 10 days, I would say he's definitely got some boxer in him - the way he bounces around and uses his paws. I tell people he's a dalmatian, boxer, lab, coonhound mix. The vet said the way his ear is spotted and how they sit on his head lends themselves to dalmatian and after checking out some photos, I would have to agree.
Anyway - That's enough for now! It's only been 10 days but already we LOVE the little guy! He's a great snuggler!
