    I'm thinking Mel could be over that fence in 1/4 second if he wanted to. Best to keep on as you have, out only when supervised. It does seem he is fitting in pretty darn well. Adding a dog to 2 other dogs doesn't always go easily.

    Adding Mel- has been a positive for our two girls....however we are keeping Mel under pretty strict guidence for fear he may jump ship and wander back to Texas...so his outside time is with us or he has the back porch...we walk the fence lines several times a day and i tell him this is hiis to watch, and he loves going to do the feeding of the animals and will sit with the goats....it will take some time but it is going better than i expected....he actually let me lay on the floor and hug him tonight and put his front leg over me and licked my face , lol
    And i will be calling vet tommrow to schedule his nutering and getting him micro chipped as he has no ID on him ...I may take a permanent marker and put his name address and phone number on him on his underside some place.....can not lose him !

    Walmart has those ID engraving machines that makes tags so you can put all of your contact info to add to his collar. I'm sure other places do also but we are variety of stores deprived here. :)

    I followed SBC's comments on what and how to talk to Maisy when we brought her home and she was ours the day she got here so it does definitely work. She literally went from being a skittish confused animal to totally bonded in 24 hours.

    He hasn't gotten a collar yet...it's on my catch up list, lol....besides, people around here would just remove collar and take Mel, I don't want to tattoo him, but he needs permanent ID for sure
