Many of you know I've been looking for a third so that Jax has a playmate.
I think I might have actually found the one. He just turned a year old, and he
was surrendered after his owners got a divorce and no longer felt they had
a place for him in their lives. :( I met him today, but the real test is tomorrow
when I take Jax and Mimi over to meet him.

They have also agreed to take him back if for some reason Mimi just can't
cope. I can't wait to see if he and Jax play well, when I went to see him he
was so playful and running around he reminded me of Jax.

This is a picture from the rescue, sorry it's not the best! He is a LH and if I
do get him, he will be the first LH I have ever had.

I hope everything goes well for you he's a really nice looking fella and he's still really young. He should fit in quite well.

He looks like a LH Jax! Have you seen him in person? How big is he? Hard to tell in pic--this is so exciting!! Hope it works out. He is such a cutie and I know he will be going to a dream home.

Another chocolate cutie - how exciting! Here's hoping that he and Jax become best buts and they give poor Mimi a break :)

Thank you all! I did bring him home, we sat out in the dog yard for over an hour
today and everyone seemed to get along. He's not really playing yet, but I
am hoping that's because he's getting used to a new environment. Jax keeps
dancing around him, crying, and begging him to play!!

So far Mimi doesn't seem stressed at all, she gave him a good growl when he
went too close to her favorite bed and now he just gives her a lot of space
when passing by lol.

He's bigger than my little bits, he's 7.2 lbs, here is a little better picture of him.
He has very good manners, I'm hoping it all works out with the three of them.

Christa, if you don't mind me asking this, what if he doesn't want to play with Jax either? If the point is for Jax to have a playmate, I would feel so sorry for him if neither Mimi nor the new dog wanted to play with him.

Christa, he is gorgeous. Hopefully he comes out of his shell in the next few days so you can be sure he's the right fit for your home, keep us posted.

Tina - I really hope that isn't the case! I know it takes a little while for them
to adjust to new surroundings so I hope he's just adjusting. The foster mom
told me he was VERY playful, keep your fingers crossed with me that we see
that side of him soon!

I also took both of them for a 30 min walk once we got back home, so he could
also just not be used to walking and a little tired. I guess we will see!

Thank you Sarah! His coat is a little raged but they told me they were feeding
him beneful, so I'm sure that has LOTS to do with it!

I surely will keep my fingers crossed!! He is such a darling! I changed my mind--no worries--just confidence he will be the perfect play buddy for Jax. We will speak it and make it so!

wow he is so gorgeous. I love his colors! I hope it all works out and you're able to keep him. BTW, what does "LH" mean?

Well I took them both outside in the yard shortly after my last post and they
were running and playing together so that's a good sign!

LH = Long Hair, all of my other Chi's present and past have always been short
hair coats.
