I called the shelter and talked to the lady and asked about temperment, etc - he sounds very much like Finlay did when I brought him home - terrified of everything. He does need help with his potty training, but he's 4 years old, so he's smart enough to "hopefully" catch on quickly.
Now, it is sort of down to "how much responsibility do I want" - Finlay and I have a fantastic, quiet little life - I'm not sure I want to disrupt that.
so, I've told myself that I won't make any decisions this weekend, I don't want to get him "just because he's free"
I've got an appt to meet him later this afternoon but right now I am thinking it may be best to cancel it and to think on it longer.
