Over the last 4 months, Monty is slowly evolving into my dog, been a fun ride to say the least. He's gotten chubby over the winter so it's diet time. Won't be long running it off in the spring but... Taken to adding defrosted veg (corn, beans, carrots etc) and some type of fruit to his diet mainly as filler and cutting back the meat. Oddly enough, he loves all fruit and veg. We're getting more warm days now which allows run time off leash in the parks, so we can both work our guts off
Socially he's sound, great with dogs as long as they are good with him. Very calm, very confident. Great around children, big bonus coming from a family with kids - and generally fine being picked up and cuddled by any strangers.
He's full raw, stomach on 4 legs really. If I'm in the kitchen, he's kicking his food bowl around looking for eats. Think he's getting tired of eating bone in chicken, so I think I'll start grinding it. He's taken to hiding whole chicken, found out the hard way when I started pulling raw chicken wings out of my couch and closet. Ewww.
Bugger won't touch raw wild meats, tried him on moose, deer and rabbit, turned up his nose every time, wouldn't even taste it.
Not a big fan of raw fish but loves canned sardines in water, so that's another good protein. Tried him on mackeral, did a weird dance around it but wouldn't eat it.
Tried him on lamb, turned up his nose.
Loves the beef and pork but I'm running out of options for rotations - but a big bonus, he'll eat the organ meats raw, loves raw liver.
Beef and pork wouldn't be enough - I need some more options. Mainly bone options.
