Default We got a puppy!

A friend of ours has given us his dog. His youngest child (6 months old) is severely allergic to him, and he can't be kept.

He remembered that we used to have a German Shepherd a while ago before we had to put him to sleep. He lived to a ripe old age of 12 years

His name was "Lako", but for the life of us, we couldn't remember it, until we associated it with the word "Wako".....which has stuck and that's his name now. lol

He's 18 months old, and well trained. He's still hyper and in puppy mode, so it's an adjustment for us.

Thanks all !

I'm learning that he has a higher than normal prey drive, which to be honest, is scaring the crap out of me.

I've moved my hand tame birds to the basement with the others (It's a finished basement, not dark and dingy and gross) because there is a door to that room that can be firmly closed and he can't get in.

I've already trained him not to go upstairs to the bedrooms, all it took was a few firm "NO's" and he got it. Do you think I've managed to get him to stay at the top of the basement stairs? NOPE! He desperately wants to go down and play with the birds in a not so playful way.
