Once I had him re-harnessed and we began our walk, he was perfect on the leash. He did not pull and was very responsive to my voice. I began to notice after a few petting stops he was beginning to know I was his friend. Many dogs assume this, but I find that poodles are so intelligent, they often do not take things for granted.
On our second stop in the exercise yard, I had clearly passed Beau's friend test. He was delighted to come when called, and sit on command, not for a treat, just for affection. He is so sweet and cuddly once he knows you. Let's hope this great guy finds his person and that they know what a wonderful little friend they've got.
