Hi there, just want to introduce myself and my wonderful boy Halo. I adopted him last week from a foster home and he has taken to me very well. The problems so far are housetraining/potty issues mostly due to the fact that his foster home had a doggy door and he doesn't understand schedules, holding, and especially letting me know when he has to go! But we're working on that.

 

He spent 5 minutes the other day in front of a mirror barking at himself which was so hilarious, I just couldn't convince him that it wasn't another grey!

There's Halo, my 3 year old (big!) boy. He's a whopping 92 pounds! According to his racing records he weighed 85 then, so no it's not just the treats! :lol

 

He's still following me around like glue for the most part, except when I give him a knuckle bone. I've only had one other grey and she was a bit older and a return to the rescue center from a former owner - so all this training is new to me. I am looking forward to gaining a lot of insight about Halo and how to handle all these new things!

Oh wow, he is gorgeous! Congrats! :confetti:yay

 

Try a belly band to help with potty training. He will catch on quickly! :)

Hello. Welcome to GT from Kansas City. I used a belly band with my boy when he first came home. It does help if he has an accident. Just get some thick absorbant pads to put in it.

Thanks everyone! I am looking into the belly bands. I also saw an XXL patio doggy door I might think about as well. :)

Welcome from Arizona! I'm Donna and I have Spencer who is now almost 7. I got him a 3 y/o.

 

It is likely that Halo will always stick to you like glue - I know Spencer still does it. I had a heck of a time training Spencer not to pee in the house even with a dog door! It took over a year..... He knew about the dog door but he also used the living room as a more convenient spot to go.

 

Enjoy your boy! I'm particulary fond of male Greys - very loving!

 

:welcome2

Hi Linneate!

 

I'm in OH too! Good to see another islander! You'll love this board. It's full of great people, hounds, advice, silliness, comforting hugs, just about anything anyone wants or needs from an internet community.

 

Your boy is GORGEOUS! Do you ever walk him at City Beach? You'll find Cindy and I there almost every day, sometimes early, early morning and sometimes later afternoon, if it isn't too hot. Let me know if you want a walking partner! :)
