Mater is doing great! He is about 80 lbs now and will be 3 in May.
We unfortunately lost his brother, Rocko, last November. He fought a long battle with an auto immune disease. Since Mater was very depressed we rescued a girl and they are just like brother and sister. Noelle is a sweet pit mix who's family's little boy was really rough with her. So they didn't want to take her back to the shelter and it was such a great fit for us. Then in March we found a dog on our street who was in bad shape.We got her back in good shape and she and Mater are like 2 love birds. We believe Sunshine is a black mouth cur, but whatever she is she definitely is a ray of sunshine. We also fostered 2 girls for ABTCR and Mater got put in line by the older one.
He has survived a move from Jacksonville to Tallahassee and back to Jacksonville. He has done very well and is learning new commands everyday and even puts himself in his crate now. The only thing we haven't been able to get under control is his love to jump our fence, once we get our own house we will be putting in a 6 foot fence so he can be off the lead.
