Ben went a day early and made the 3 hour drive to bring home our new pup, Chevy. He’s 5 months old and the size of a labrador. When he’s all grown up he’ll be the size of a great dane, about 32″ tall at the shoulder.
We brought him in for his first bath and he was extremely compliant.
He’s so so so shy and skittish, but hopefully he’ll get used to us before long. Anyone else ever had an older puppy act this way? Will he grow out of it and become a tough, ferocious guard dog that’s good at playing fetch and will be my running buddy? I hope so.
