Rex learned to go up and down the stairs in 2 days !

Wow!!!!! That is all I can say :-)
Rex went up and down the stairs a few times today and of course got a few treats as a reward for being such a fast learner!
At first his front legs would go up the stairs but his back legs were stuck to the ground hahahaha..... It was so cute and funny!
He went down the stairs right away and finally just went up and down minutes ago!
I got some pictures to prove it!

He is a wonderful wonderful boy and we love having him around as he is a great foster.
We also went for a walk and he did great! He stops went you stop and stay close to you too...
I had to go do a few errants and he stayed nicely in his crate, when I cam back he was just resting .
Here are today's pictures. Enjoy!

Rex had another great day!

Rex is still doing wonderful here at his foster home.
He is very sweet and affectionate!
Had a great second night sleep in our bedroom along with the residents hounds and waited until I woke up around 7:30 am for his first bathroom break.
He loves being around his foster family and did some whining while I was in the shower( he was in his crate) this morning but did great for 5 hours in his crate when I had to go to work in the afternoon.
I came back and he was laying in his crate and wagged his tail when I came in the house :-)

He is doing great with the house training too! No accident in the house or the crate!
He gets along really well with our Borzoi girl Tasha and our 2 greyhounds Lizzy and Win.
He is a wonderful boy and enjoys lots of hugs, treats and kisses.
He still has great table manners and stays on a dog bed while you eat your dinner.
For a young 2 years old he is very well behaved and we are happy to say he is very obedient.
If you would like to meet him you know who to call :-)
Here is a picture of Rex in the crate tonight and one from earlier.

Rex is adapting quite well !

Rex has been with us for only 24 hours and he is doing great so far!
He slept in our bedroom last night as he really likes to be near his foster family and near the other hounds as well.

He waited until I woke up and got out of bed which was 7:30 am for his first potty break just like the other hounds in the house.
Last night he ate all his super and all his breakfast this morning, he is a good eater not picky at all.
He is learning to do stairs , he does need us to show him how and likes our praises! I am sure it's just a matter of time for him to do them all by himself! :-)
Today was our meet and greet and he did great!
He was very curious and actually was a little vocal when he saw some puppies coming in and wanted to go play with them :-)
He also travels well and just slept in the car going to the meet and greet and did exactly just as well riding home.
Right now he is sound asleep in his crate :-)
He is a really good boy and we really enjoy fostering him!
He has great table manners (lets you eat in peace) and a great temperament!
If you would like to meet this gentle boy call Denise @ (304)229-4944 and don't forget to send your application!
Here are a few more pictures and you can see the one I just took of him sleeping in his crate ( after the meet and greet) while I am typing near the living room :-)

Gus really found his forever home!

We are so so happy for Gus! A very nice family came with their 3 children and their greyhound to meet Gus!

He was a little shy, specially with their 5 years old and he was mostly confused after all 3 houses in a week that is a lot of changes.

But I got some great news....... Gus is adjusting really well with the children, Minnie the greyhound and his new mom and dad too! They love him!
He will have a nice fenced in yard to play and chase Minnie! And there is someone home most of the time! Gus is a very lucky boy!
We really miss you Gus!
I wish him a very happy life with your new family :-)
Gus can come and visit us anytime! :-)

Gus is still available!

Gus was not too happy at his home and is still available! Only stayed one day and 1/2 and was still adjusting to his new surroundings , people etc...
He really is a nice dog! We have absolutely no problems with him at all. He actually is part of our pack as you can see on the pictures :-)
He was so happy to see us and our dogs were very happy to see him too!
Welcome back sweet Gus!

We went for a nice walk and he did great on the leash. He saw someone on a scooter and a little girl getting of the bus, Gus walked by them nicely then he met 4 little Italian Greyhounds who sniffed him and were all around him and he was great with them! :-)
He loves playing in our yard with the resident hounds and he is so much fun.
He ate all his super and feels quite at home here with us.
We took some nice pictures of Gus playing with Tasha and Lizzy in the yard.
We love Gus and are very happy to foster this affectionate and sweet boy.
If you would like to meet him call Denise @(304) 220-4944
