After looking at a couple of shelters and reading numerous ads, we brought this guy home on a trial basis. We have a week to decide whether he'll work with our family.
So far it looks promising that he will. He walks well, he's gentle with the kids, he hasn't jumped the fence, he rode nicely in the car. He has not messed in the house. Fred did not have any of those positive qualities, nor was he at all eager to please whereas this dog seems extremely willing to please. The slightest "no" and he'll immediately stop what he's doing.
He enjoyed chasing the cats, to their yowling dismay. He also got out our stock of empty milk and juice jugs from the recycle bin and spread them around the yard, worrying them and chewing on them. Since we have an abundance, I didn't mind.
If we keep him, we'll name him Shadow.
