Update on Border Collie pup #5

Ann and Pete have named their Border Collie foster Angus.

Ann told me that Angus' first night was spent with their two very laid back beagles who helped him leave behind the trauma of the car ride up to their shelter. After that he was introduced to their other dogs allowing Angus to learn from their confidence around each other and humans.

One of Angus' problems at TAS was that he would not eat. His eating at Ann and Pete's was slow at first but now he's eating regularly so he should be putting on some much needed weight.

They re-introduced him to a leash in the last few days. The first time, they just hung out around the yard with the leash on. Yesterday, they went on their first leashed walk.

It looks like Angus is going to do just fine.
