Advice on foster puppy, 7 months old, zero training.

Just wanted to update that the little guy was adopted by an agility trainer. I couldn't be happier with his new home, even though I'm sad he's gone.

Here's a quick video of him, sorry it's so dark but you can still see his excellent head-tilting skills!!

Well that video got my dogs head tilting He really is cute and he seems to be quite content. Its not his fault that he isn't trained, but I think that he's willing to be trained by someone that loves him and considers him part of the family. I also believe that having other dogs in the house helps with the landshark phase and other training too.

I vacuum daily and brush my dogs, but the hair is always there. I wake up with hair, and I go to bed with hair. He still has his puppy coat now, but the thought of adding even more hair makes me physically ill!

We have decided to keep him 1 week and re-evaluate. I want the newness to wear off and everyone to see that it will be more work, items will be chewed and we will have a little landshark on our hands for quite a bit longer.

So what your saying is that you will fall in love with him and he now has a forever home

ETA: The way I know that I'm attached is that my husband mentioned someone at work who might be interested, and I got this panicked feeling and suddenly felt super protective, LOL. My heart rate went up and I started questioning about the guy and asking my husband why he thought this random guy would be good enough for our little pup. He said he felt the exact same way and he knew immediately after he told the guy about our pup that he wasn't getting him...
