The only reason I kept him was that my little girl loved him to bits - and - I got another two years with her. He was a lot of work ! He hated being in the yard, would jump/climb fences - just to bugger off, hated males - humans - really big time and anything I had in my hand - regardless - he would either run away or hit the deck !
Now- with the help of heaps of people and him finally trusting me - yes I know he is not perfect - but I love him ! He is able to patted on the head, does woo-woos to people now that he wants to say hello to. He hasn't embarrassed me for a while - oh - other than doing woo-woos to the RBT team a couple of days ago.
Plus - he is quite happy to stay in the yard and if I have to go out without him - he doesn't wreck the house.
Time and patience - does really work wonders !
