LOL, we are still trying to answer that question. Because of his deep purple tongue and the way he holds himself, I'm told he has a lot of chow in him...however, the pound had him listed as a Leo. He's a mixed of this and that, I guess.
I'm sorry the quality of the photos is low, but that's the only way I could post them that large. Eventually, I'll figure out the entire system.
Some good news though: Today I took Charlie to the university library, and though we were there for about 30-35 minutes, other than a little whimpering, he was fine. When he whimpered, I assured him that I wouldn't leave him, that I still loved him, and that he was being a good boy. After, I gave him some tidbits of hotdog.
After the library, I planned to bring him home because I don't want to introduce too much at once. Well, turns out we were within a couple blocks of the store, and since I only needed one item, I decided to take him inside. I knew it'd only be for a minute or two. He was a perfect gentleman. I picked up a tidbit for him while we were there, and once we were out, he got another bite of hotdog from my pocket.
Yesterday, my social worker dropped off a clicker. I'm only using it a few minutes at a time so he doesn't get bored with it. I took it with us today, and whenever I gave him a treat, I had him look at me. When I asked something of him and he did it, I clicked the clicker immediately and gave him a tidbit. Eventually, he'll understand commands and I won't have to give him bites. Now, when we're at home, he adores belly rubs more than anything in the world, so that's what he gets. He loves 'play time' and whenever he wants to use his teeth, I quietly say 'no teeth' and give him a chew toy. I don't quit playing with him unless he tries to use his teeth at least three times, but that's rare. He seems to be catching on.
