Brought home foster boy today
A 10mo. Corgi/Beagle mix that is a doll; but, he's stressing out my nearly blind senior female AND the cat. His profile said he got along well with dogs and cats, and I know it's partly because of his new surroundings and his young age; but I'm regretting putting my female through this already. He's not neutered, but will be if I decide to adopt. I'm sure this has alot to do with his behavior towards Annie. I'm correcting the behavior every time it happens, which is every 5 or 10min. Annie is so stressed she is trembling and stays under the pantry table on her bed, she just asked to be put outside. I don't think the cat will come back inside tonight - or ever!
I do have a crate for the boy but I don't want him to associate that with punishment and I can tell he's not too enthused about going in one (he'll be sleeping in there for awhile). Also leaving a leash on him for now. Sometimes, it just doesn't work out. He sure would make a great dog for a family of kids.
