I have had Kirby for 1 week now. He is still reserved, but I can see him becoming more relaxed each day. He seems to have a little problem with his back hip. He seems to sway a little when he walks and he can't zip around like Sugar and Chloe do in the yard. He loves lying in the dog bed I put down for him. A big plus......he has not had one accident in my house. That is awesome for a puppymill dog!
