I picked this guy up from the shelter yesterday. He is smaller than Venice (maybe about 40lbs) and is very sweet, wiggly and affectionate. Poor guy was urgent at the shelter (can't be adopted in Ontario) and may have the beginnings of demodex, probably due to stress. I like him a LOT. He's got some anxiety in the crate and definitely doesn't like to be alone (my poor upstairs neighbours) but he's a really fun little dude. Walks well on leash, settles well in the apartment with me, unless he's out with Venice. He is super friendly and lovey with other dogs but is an idiot - he has no idea what calming signals are and not an ounce of sense about when to back off and go lie down, so there is a lot of interruption when they are loose. He is PLAY PLAY ZOOMIE HUMP PLAY. Mostly he is tethered to me, to save Venice's sanity. Anyway, he needs a name! My mother mentioned The Story of Ferdinand - the bull who would rather lie around in the sun than fight with a matador. I think Ferdinand sounds like a dumb name but Ferdy is super cute!
