His sire is an Outback Jack son out of Lola.

Pup went to class with me last night. He rides great in the car and is extremely good in the crate. After Savvy's class I put Sav in the van (he's not nearly as good about being left crated while another dog is out LOL) and brought the pup in. He met probably 6-8 people including two kids and saw quite a few more "neutral" strangers and of course the dogs. He was really, really good although I told everyone to wait until he approaches them. A few people treated him when he came up and I treated him for friendly behavior as well. He made friends with a couple people, one to the point that he went over to her and gave her kisses. So a huge improvement in how he acted when I first met him, although right now the improvement is mostly due to a change in how he is handled. I am setting him up to feel confident and like he is in control of meeting people, so it is not putting him in a position to get worried. And he learned to sit for a treat and kept offering to show me just how good he could that.

He also found his prey drive He was carrying around a pool noddle (Savvy's current favorite toy) in the yard before class last night. After class, he discovered a semi deflated mini basketball and thought it seemed fun to play with. He was chasing and biting the ball so I figured I'd give the flirt pole another try. He wasn't interested in it earlier but had a great time with it last night.

He seems to have decent structure, from what you can judge when they are all legs. Physically, he shows some signs of poor care - splayed feet and weak pasterns. He is sooooo clumsy right now too but it doesn't stop him from trying to make big leaps. I think he is going to be one handsome dog when he's mature. His flop ear even seems to be trying to come up this morning.

My impression of him on day two of having him is he is a nice puppy overall but is suffering from lack of exposure, socialization, training and experiences. I think he is young enough that he will overcome that though and I am impressed by his vast improvement in just two days of being here. More pictures later
