Thats a good idea! I will have to try that.

His owners want to bring him home on Sunday to see if it will work out, they will see how it works for a week then let me know. I gave her detailed instructions on what she needs to do with him if she wants it to work out. I hope she follows through, she does really love him.

Update

After almost 2 weeks of being home, it has been decided that Bailey will be coming back to me so I can find him a permanent home (after we work through his issues)

Dogs take a lot of effort, but boy is that effort rewarded if you stick with it. Sometimes people just don't understand the level of commitment that's needed with a puppy or dog.

I have a neighbor that has told me so many times, "I want a dog just like that", meaning whatever dog of mine I had with me at the time. I've told him all dogs are inherently good, but that they need guidance and consistancy from their owners. He always nods when I say that. Over the past 11 years, he's gotten 9 new dogs, and none of them are still living with him. His claim is that he hasn't had any luck in finding a really good dog.

Just sayin...

Unfortunatly a lot of people in this world think dogs are born trained. In Baileys case when they got him, she didnt work now they both work 10 hours a day. Which would have been fine if they would have taken the time to give him exercise before and after work. Oh well, I will make sure to find him the perfect home.

Ann: you are soooo right. When I hear that about Elsa, I tell them it started with puppy school and continued training throughout her life._Marie
Love me; Love my dog
