Update on Border Collie pup #4

from Brian:

The dog is sitting in the back yard and accepting treats from our hand. He's also found his voice and barking at a squirrel. As a bonus he's let us remove the leash and put it back on a few times without going crazy. Getting him back inside the house might be a handful but I genuinely think he's going to be okay in the long run.

Since so many people from Leslieville were involved in the dog's rescue we decided to name him Leslie. Still very nervous on the leash and around loud noises but plays well in the off-leash park and loves other dogs. No separation anxiety when I leave and hasn't had a single indoor accident. He follows us from room to room and sleeps by our side during the day and in the mudroom at night. Amazing progress in 8 days.
