This little guy has not, happily, had his tail docked or his ears cropped and he looks great! He is very shy at first but once he warms up to you, he will quickly roll on his back for lots of belly rubs. He will definitely take a few days to be comfortable in a new environment. He was so terrified when he arrived, he was peeing as we were trying to pick him up. I cannot imagine that kind of terror. He is now settling in nicely and jumps up at me for attention. He really likes other dogs. I haven’t tried him out with cats but I suspect he would be okay. He probably would be best with no small children as he is a timid lad.
