He's doing pretty well other than he still gets snappy with some people who try to pet him. He is not a reactive dog, not a dog who barks or lunges or wants to bite random people or anything. He can happily be around strangers an not pay any attention to them, can work and play around them. And he makes friends with new people pretty quickly once he's around them. But a few people who have tried to pet him and one who tried to huge him have caused him to react. At this point, it's just a threat display and I am addressing it by enforcing a hands off policy with strangers so as not to give him a chance to practice the inappropriate behavior. He's a really nice puppy, it's really a shame he was nearly 4 months old before he had a chance to start socialization.
I think he might drive you crazy though LOL he is so super attached and needy already! Follows me all over, lays behind me so as to nearly trip me when I step back and half the time, I can't get him to go into the yard to potty if I don't go out with him because he just stands on the deck staring in the door looking for me. he isn't anxious about being separated but he is rather clingy. I kinda doubt the breeder is going to let the rest of them go anyway
