12/8/21: Colton has been at our house for a few weeks and has been a true gentleman. He was nervous the first few days but then settled into a routine with us. Fortunately, my husband and I both work from home so Colton is not left alone very often. When we do leave, he is never kenned as he just needs a soft bed to sleep on. Since he is in his elder years, stairs are pretty difficult so he stays on our main level and we built him a ramp so he can go outside with ease. Laminate or hardwood floors are scary for him (he sometimes loses his footing) so we have a patchwork of area and scatter rugs that allow him to navigate the house. He gets along well with our two resident dogs although they wish he was a few years younger so they could convince him to play. Colton has a very gentle soul and a glimmer in his eye that suggests he might have had some mischief up his sleeve in his younger years.
