This is Fievel, our new Toy Fox Terrier. He is about 6 years old, playful yet cuddly. We started our trial adoption on Sunday.
The lady from Kitty and K9 Connection finally got together with us and brought 2 dogs for us to see: Fievel (obviously) and another dog Rok. Rok was supposed to be calm; in fact, I thought he was going to be calmer than Fievel. But when he arrived, he was pinging off the walls. Now admittedly, both dogs were excited to be somewhere new. But Rok was crazy, and I knew that even if he calmed down with us, he was going to get excited like that again. Fievel was much more manageable.
So far, we've had him for a day and a half. He goes to the bathroom outside, and is pretty chill. We are still working on obedience, though. He does not always come when he is called, and he does not know how to sit. I practiced with him today, but it is going to take a while, I think. We also went for a walk and he really went crazy with barking when he saw another dog. So I've got to figure out how to nip that in the bud.
We have 2 weeks for a trial adoption, so I guess if he doesn't work out, we could give him back. So far everything seems good though. I like him. He's cute.
