Hi Mary,

Just wanted to send a quick update on Achilles. I can’t tell you how amazed I am at how great he is. We went to the vet yesterday and got a clean bill of health. He weighed in at just over 17lbs and was quite the superstar with all the staff. My vet just adored him.

His first night was pretty rough and he cried A LOT, so I got very little sleep. I had to move his crate to where he could see me in the bed, and now he is just fine. He’s already learned Sit and Down, and is doing really good with potty training and has quite the healthy appetite!

Today I took him out for socializing. We went to both Petsmart and Petland where he charmed absolutely everyone. His personality is so laid back, calm, and confident and he showed no fear of anything! He is everything I wished my other GSD, Kaiya, could have been. Her first trip to Petsmart was a disaster and we had to leave after 10 min because she just couldn’t handle all the people, strange things, and dogs. You’d have thought Achilles was a regular! 😉

So again, thank you for such a wonderful pup! I truly could not be any happier with my choice!
