Maybe he just does better in a home with other dogs. I once fostered a dog that was shy, submissive - and basically had no 'spirit - until there was another dog around, then she had a completely different personality. She needed other dogs to really be herself.

They decided that he was not to be allowed on the couch - I don't like that but can respect it.

When we got home, he made himself feel right at home. Checked out the whole house. I took him out back, and he leaped off the back porch into the snow. It was hilarious. He was having a blast in the snow.
He's been busy playing with the kittie. It's a game. He will just sit there and stare at the cat, like "move, do something to make this fun!" The cat thinks it's a funny game too. They ended up on the couch and it was too cute: they rubbed heads.
Then my daughter's dog got into the game too. They were trying to corner the cat who just watched them both from the top of the furniture. I wish I had a camera to take a video of all this-it's just too funny.
Ollie runs all over the place, he jumps just like at your house and he's happily approaching all people. Goes from one to the other,gets love, then chases the cat some more.
My kids think he's darn adorable. He looks happy. He was quite the snowbunny out there in the yard. I don't know what these other people were talking about. He loves to go outside. Maggie, my daughter's dog wanted back inside, but Ollie just loved the snow. He looked so funny with a white beard! I think the two dogs just now got tired of the cat-chasing game. They are right now sleeping in my room next to each other as I am typing this. It's sooo adorable. I think Ollie will be happy here!!!!!
Well, have a good night. I will keep you updated.
