…more like armed neutrality.
We don’t know very much about Newdog. He was picked up as a stray – no chip, no tags -- by a county animal shelter down south, and turned over to a private rescue when his time at the county ran out and he was scheduled to be euthanized.
He has beautiful markings (click to enlarge the photo and you can see how handsome he is) and a lovely gait , it’s like watching an Arabian pony trot when he walks with Brian. The ladies at the rescue thought he might be a year and a half because of his small size, but vet at the rescue estimated his age at five years old after looking at his teeth.
At some time in his life someone took the trouble to teach him basic obedience commands. From the way he behaves with us, someone also knocked him around quite a bit. For this reason, we’re going to wait a while before getting the kitten, and work on making him feel less afraid and insecure.
We’re also going to work on feeding him up some.
