Rescued gsp/mix~was very sick/underweight; happy,healthy 2mos later. now, sep anxiety, back2work.
love this dog, he's sweet, smart, everything. very affectionate. good w/people, kids, other dogs. have to return to work, sharing house w/elderly aunt who is not going to help; busy social life. i'm concerned about dog's emotional well-being as he was neglected & hurt. adjusted well first month, now acts more silly puppy & strong (better weight now) but listens to instructions. he is very attached, & I want him to feel secure & calm. i'm an older, experienced dog owner; do well w/instructions. I'm patient & calm. any advice?
my aunt has the busy social life, haha ... not me! i'm a quiet homebody, introvert but cheerfully so. just curious for advice beyond vet tech's chat of kong toy (he has) crate (he's 64 lb pup, saving for crate that large!) & him being a rescue. he's doing so well & is admired for his calm, good behaviour, i don't want to set him back. my previous dogs were small companion dogs, a bichon 16 years, then a coton~ both sweet. each had good puppy life, bichon was @ work w/me first few months, fine later @ home. coton more a funny character, but also good ~slept happily curled in a chair while away during school/work hours, with dog walker mid-day.
Jimmy's more like a deer, haha ... like The Yearling. all elbows & knees but *thinks he's a lap dog.
i'm curious, are big dogs different alone than small dogs?
thanks in advance

Medical Studies state that 9 ot of 10 person are obese. I believe that not everyone is meant to be slim but you should strive to be healthy. I believe in natural or organic foods and natural remedy to get to my desired weight. I used to go to the gym 5 times aweek and still did not lose any weight....
