Jake (the runt) puppy, we think, is actually going to make it! His last seizure was over 2 weeks ago. I mean, seriously, we were planning where we were going to bury this puppy. But he appears to be a survivor! He is growing like a weed (as you can see in the pics above). Don't get me wrong--this dog has ISSUES, but it looks like he's going to stick around.
Jake is currently losing all of his hair. It's the worst on his tail and feet, but one side of his body is pretty hairless as well. We think he's allergic to grass. Not such a great thing for a dog! Jake still has very wonky eyes, but he can see enough to get around. He isn't doing well with potty training at all, but we appear to have moved from the "pee on the couch or wherever I am" stage to the "I think I should pee over by the door" stage. Maybe--possibly--he might eventually be potty trained? If not, it's diapers for Jake!
The biggest issue we have right now is his tendency to be aggressive. =-( He plays VERY aggressively, but (even worse) he will snap at the little kids if they try to pick him up when he doesn't want to be picked up. Right now he's too little to do much damage, but that's something that has to stop. The sad thing is, I really feel like it goes back to the little guy's brain damage. I don't know how trainable he will be. But we shall see. When you look past his baldness and wonky eye and tendency to bite, he's one sweet puppy! We love him! ;-)
