The more confidence that Petee builds, the more words he is learning. Such as "leave it", "not yours", "mine", "that's not a toy", "excuse me?", and "really???"
But, with all seriousness, watching him come out of his shell is worth watching him trying to steal clothes off the bed, remote controls off the couch, and cell phones off the table. He is currently watched like a hawk so that he doesn't steal or chew something he shouldn't.
He is also watched closely so he doesn't have accidents in the house (we missed a couple). Considering our friend Petee came from a place where there were no bathroom breaks, he is doing remarkably well.
Although he's not on free roam when left alone, he has always kept his personal living area clean. He sleeps peacefully through the night with a bathroom break around 9 PM and again between 6-7 AM.
Petee is currently living with two cats, one dog, and two humans. If his new home has a cat friend, it will have to be a very savvy cat. He is still young and would enjoy chasing it if he/she were to run.
This pup is nervous about meeting new people but shows eagerness to get some loving and scratches by the strangers and does his best to warm up to them. With the help of his dog friend he finds some much needed confidence to move in to steal the attention.
Mister Parker has recently found the joy of squeaking his squeaky toys and is even showing interest in playing fetch. An area that he excels in are his daily walks. He is most comfortable when he is out with nature.
Petee is a young dog with plenty of energy. He needs daily walks and one-on-one play time to help build muscle, strengthen his bones, and stimulate his mind. Without this commitment, his chewing of inappropriate items, nervous pacing, and jumping will increase to an unacceptable level.
