I've decided to call him Oscar after a comment left by Cassidy the Airedale mentioned a previous ADT of that name & we all loved it. He's lovely & in very good condition but unfortunately isn't used to being inside a house so was a bit 'non-plussed' when we went in.
However when Annie came in he came to life:
Airedales at play!
He'll be joining our family on Friday morning & he'll be meeting the kittens & all the normal noises in a house so he'll have a bit of adjusting to do. I'll at home for 3 days so will be able to supervise contact with the cats etc & he will be crated at night & whilst we're out so he'll have a safe haven of his own. I am fortunate enough to work part time so he won't be left for long when I am at work.
I'll be socialising him to get him used to noises, people & all manner of experience as I want him to be able to cope with all situations. So even though he seemed a bit cautious tonight I'm confident he'll grown up into a relaxed & confident dog. We both noticed that there was no fear in his expression just a total puzzlement.
Annie has been growling at the kittens over the past few days but hopefully once she's got someone to play with she'll revert back to her normal happy self.
Knitting content will resume soon I'm promise.
