So far he has been nothing short of a dream dog. He is wonderful with other dogs and very cuddly/sweet. He can be a little shy at first, and he is skittish around Chicago traffic but other than that he is just a wonderful well adjusted boy. We let him offleash by the lake and he ran right into the water for a swim. In all we walked for about 2.5 hours this morning around the lakefront in Chicago and we had absolutely zero problems with him. He does have two cuts on his neck that look to me like someone used a shock collar on him... but he seems to have bounced back wonderfully from any abuse.
My boyfriend and his Wheaten Terrier have really taken a liking to Eazy, so he will be staying there until he finds his permanent home (and I don't want to jinx it, but they have REALLY taking a liking to him... so it's quite possible he already found a permanent home).
So that is the current Eazy-E update, I'm so glad I could post such a positive update for everyone I will definitely have pictures of him soon!
|I love the new name. The personality of a sheepie with a name from gansta rap is very funny to me. I have a friend with a bull dog named Biggie Smalls, it suits him perfect. |
Good luck with the new fellow. Sounds like your off to a great start.
|Give him a few days to show his true colors. Having other dogs around who are settled and under control will help ease his transition. Glad it is going well. Rescues can really be sweet as they seem to know "this is a second chance, boy am I lucky!"|
|Thanks for the update, Heather and Thank you for fostering him.|
|Heather, that is awesome news!!!
I was hoping to hear an update like this one. He is such a good boy, I think anyone who meets him with fall in love with his easy-going personality.
Perfect name for him BTW.
AND, I can't wait to see pics! (I'll upload mine once approved.)
|Boyfriend?? Is this a new one? (Don't you love how that's what caught my interest the most in the story!)
But really, I'm glad this boy seems like a sweet one. Thanks for helping him!
|He's super squirmy so these are the best pics I could get of him...
Such a cuddler!
Eazy and his foster sister Marley
In front of the Field Museum in Chicago. He rolled down the hill scratchin' his back, it got a good laugh!
By Miegs Field in Chicago. Once again scratchin' his back!
So far only good updates! Still good in his crate, still housebroken, and still good with Marley.
Steph- Yes this is a new boyfriend, haha I thought I'd be able to sneak that one by you guys! He is just as crazy about his dog as I am Walter, plus he jumped on the opportunity to foster... so I think he's a keeper
|Those are terrific! Thanks so much Heather (and boyfriend) to taking Eazy-E on!
Eazy-E in the back. Oliver gets a little crazy, so we had to crate Oliver on the trip to IL. After 40 minutes of non-stop barking, I thought I was going to go crazy, but they finally fell asleep.
In IL Rick found out just how Ninja Eazy-E is; he can jump over seats, lift handles, AND move his own bed .
|Heather, new boyfriend is cute, likes dogs and wanted to foster......seems like a keeper|
|Yeah...the new boyfriend part jumped out to me, too. You know we want only the best for you, Heather, and it sounds like he's a good one.
Easy E is a great name it sure looks like he's adjusting wonderfully. You have to marvel at the resilience (sp?) of these beautiful creatures.
Thanks to everyone who had a part in his rescue.
|Boyfriend *giggles* ...I feel like we should be doing more girl talk.
I also like/prefer the Easy E name.
|OHHHH...he's adorable. Good luck with the "fostering"!!!! I think he may have found a spot in someone's heart already!|
|ah thanks for sharing love the pics.. hum love good girly gossip|
|Since it's picture time, here's a couple I got on the drive:
He really is a cool little dog!
|Eazy's day yesterday:
We learned that he does NOT like being in his crate during the day (at night he is fine). He somehow moved the crate to the middle of the floor and pulled the bottom tray completely out. During his thrashing he also split open the end of his tail, so his foster dad came home to a tail wagging blood all over the place! We cleaned it up and he's going to keep a bandage on it when he leaves... but cross your fingers that it heals up and we dont have to go to the vet.
We also got an inquiry about him from what sounds like a very great family who just lost a bearded collie. Keep your fingers/paws crossed!
|Wow--there are so many pictures of this dog! Love it! What a lucky boy.|
|Indeed! What a lucky fellow!
Are you still crating him during the day, Heather?
|Oh he's a cutie pie...the boyfriend too! I'm so glad you bounced back so quickly Please do tell how you met the new boyfriend. I'm looking forward to meeting him.|
|He is a lucky boy!!
Looks like he enjoyed the beach.
|He is still being crated during the day, but today he left him with a big nylabone to keep him busy. He also put some things on top of the crate to weigh it down so he cant move it around the kitchen. Does anyone have any suggestions for keeping him from cracking his tail open again? I think he will just eat a bandage right off, so short of padding the whole crate I'm not sure what to do about that!
I'll update you all about the bf in the members only section!
|This is Oliver's dad/ hubby who picked up the Easy-E. When I took him to the vet, he said it looked fine and that all that was needed to be done was kept clean with triple anti-biotic. I asked about a bandage and he said you could and it wouldn't hurt anything but you really didn't need to.
And oh yeah he's an escape artist for sure. He figured out how to get out of his kennel at the day-care place, he also got mad about being in there and moved his bed in front of the door in protest.
