Thanks for all the support guys. Tonight I'm going shopping(yeehaw) and I'm going to get the littlest collar they've got at the store and hope it fits him(I already found a leash). Despite successes in the past with off leash walking its time for him to be on a leash, quite the independent little puppy lately.

gdsgregory, said that a street dog is a street dog and will never be like a fully domestic. And rij73 said that since I've had him since five weeks that bonding is possible and probable.

Conflicting opinions. And I've been thinking the exact same two things for a little while now. So here is what I'm going to do. I'm going to do my best to give this puppy every chance to become a good bonded loving puppy dog, and I'll reserve judgement until such a time as it becomes obvious(or at least more clear).

Once again, thanks for all the support guys.

I still would love to know if taking him home with you will even be possible? Have you looked into regulations and such?

Also... the link Skyeboxer posted looks great! Maybe if you socialize the dog well, he will be able to find a good home through them!

I just checked out the link and I'm hugely surprised that such a thing exists here. I'll remember it. I bookmarked it even. Wow, I never would have guessed.

I'm glad it helps Now at least you can do your research on bringing him home without the fear that the only option is euthanasia.

Just a thought - the little guy's aloofness may be also caused by him being 5 weeks old when you got him. 5 to 7 weeks is the socialization phase with mama and the rest of the litter and missing this might have made it harder for him to connect...
