Flint came to the same home that his brother Zippo was adopted into. Sadly, Zippo’s health deteriorated and he only lived two months in his final home. Flint missed a reunion, but he probably was aware of Zippo’s scents when he arrived. Flint is much healthier and doesn’t show his 11 years as he runs around on our daily walk in my acres of woods, splashing in the creek and chasing squirrels.
Flint’s one negative is his seeming separation anxiety and he cannot be left at home without trying to break out and go exploring. He likes to ride in the car, so he accompanies his new owner everyplace possible or gets to impress a babysitter when he can’t come along. It seems he is enjoying his new life, and his frequent woo’s emphasize that.
