Just to let you know that the boy has settled in beautifully. He's a world-class counter surfer - so I just have to be careful. He and I have started obedience and he's super - will do anything for a treat. Also to let you know that we have met the little Black and Tan female you placed with my neighbor through the woods. Buddy and Ellie (her new name) have played together several times and gotten along great guns.
As always, thank you so much for your help in finding a great dog for me.
