We named our boy Mater after the tow truck in Cars, our sons favourite character. We got a male because i have a preference for them. I think we will get a female in a couple of years if we move to a bigger property. He is an inside dog when we are home and outside when we go out.
He drinks a lot of water which means he pees a lot, inside. A LOT!!! He is getting better though and we don't have carpet so it's manageable.
It was hard when we first got him he would jump up in the kids but it didn't last long. We have also included the kids right from the start in looking after him. They feed him, water him, help walk him and I send them outside to play ball with him.
