After registering with a few rescue groups a few months ago (GSP/Vizsla/Weimaraner) I have been matched with a potential adoption.
His name is Griffin, he is a 2-year-old Weim, and I am bringing him home this Saturday. I have agreed to foster him for 30 days, see how it goes, and then either adopt him or keep him until another home is found for him.
I am excited and nervous! The current owners have had him since he was a pup and they also have a Vizsla. They have 3 kids, are SUPER busy and Griffin isn't getting the attention he needs.
He has recently undergone a behavioral boot camp of sorts to prepare him for his new home, and from what I understand has done very well.
He is BIG! 80 lbs. big. Compared to my Hobie (who is 35 lbs at almost 1 year) he is huge. I am excited to see them together, and obviously hope they bond with each other.
Does any owner of multiple dogs have any advice for me?? I want this to be successful and minimize stress on him and Hobie. I have lots of notes about him and he seems like a genuinely great dog. Crate trained, housebroken, invisible fence trained. Great in the car. I think he needs more exercise but he does go on runs periodically.
I think Hobie will enjoy having a companion too.
Any insight you have to share is much appreciated!!!
