Scout and I are sending a shout out to RedHawk and Catorie Winter pup parents. We were checking to see how your journey is going. This forum is a wonderful learning tool for you as you and your pup navigate new waters of puppy hood. Scout is our second AID so I feel we have alittle more experience with this breed. They can be a handful at times, but the key is to not let them think they are in charge. They can be strong willed and test the waters whenever given the chance. Like Kim told you when you picked up your pup, don't let them think they are the Alpha. Be strong, be firm yet in a kind way. They do understand, quite well.
Scout has grown into one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen. When we go out for our daily walks he is always mistaken for a German Shepard pup. I quickly give them the condensed version about his breed. He had his 14 week shots last Monday and weighs a whopping 28 lbs. Wow, can't believe how much he has grown. I think he is going to be bigger than our Hawk was. Hawk always stayed a slim 40lbs. most of his 14.5 years. When we first brought Scout home we took his pictures for registration. But decided to wait until he was a bit older and his ears were up. Still haven't had a chance to get any good poses. He is on the move all the time. Hopefully this is reminder to you as well to get your pictures and registration in so we can see what these 5 siblings look like now.
Happy Easter to all and stay safe!
