He is a very gorgeous boy.

Have you thought of a name yet?

Thanks!! He was a transfer from another shelter, where he was an owner surrender. Given his orange color and the timing, I will likely be calling him Layton.

I love, love, love that little fellow, and I'm certain that Jack would approve! Congratulations on the new boy. How old is he? He doesn't look too old, no info on why the owner surrendered? Their loss is your gain.

What a cutie. Thank you for adopting him.

He looks just like my friends dog Max.

He was transferred from a shelter in Quebec so I only have a partial understanding of his issues (the surrender form is in french, so I only understood part of it). I'm told he has a history of separation anxiety, so I'm being cautious of that issue.

He is still just a young thing (9 months) which is far younger than I was looking for, but he reminded me of my deceased dog Lilly and I decided to take him home. Also, I was pleased to see he has lived with cats before.

So far he has some significant anxiety (which isn't surprising coming out of a shelter) so we are just relaxing and keeping things low key while he decompresses a bit.

Thanks so much for adopting that handsome boy! I own an American Cocker Spaniel too, he's my heart dog. That little man will pay you back 1000 times, they are the best for cuddling. Look at that cocker sprawl in the second picture, I love him!

If you need help with the French form, you can PM me and I'll translate it for you. I'm sure with some work, love and patience, he's gonna be an amazing companion
