Tango (adopted Oct 2020) is doing fantastic in his new home. It has taken him a little while to get settled, and we had a few bumps in the road during the transition but it was nothing a little time, patience and advice from our trainer couldn't handle. Although he loves all his new family members, mom is his absolute favorite. He LOVES playing fetch and going on walks around our farm. His favorite spot (besides wherever mom is) is the back pasture where he can play fetch, "keep away" with his little puppy sister or just lounge. He has adjusted to our horses and even let's them groom him. He is very smart and often only needs to be told something once (unless the stakes are high, ... like ham in the trash can or those pesky squirrels who are just asking to be chased). He still wins the award for Most Vocal Shepherd, but even that's improving with time. He thrives on routine, esp at night when he helps us tuck the kiddos into bed and then immediately goes into the kitchen to get his well deserved chew (pig ear, bully stick, etc). He makes us laugh every day! He's come a long way since he came home with more to go, but we just love him to pieces and are so glad he's ours!
