Victor is settling in so well! We just love him to pieces. He is so gentle and gives the sweetest kisses! He definitely favors women over men but isn't aggressive in the least and is starting to warm up to my husband a lot. He still doesn't quite know what to think of our son but seems to be a lot less fearful of him than he was just 24 hours ago! I even took him for a walk today around the block on a leash and he did really well. He was a little unsure of the cars but really enjoyed sniffing all of the light poles. He hasn't had a single accident in our house and slept well all night in his crate last night. I will say he is totally freaked out by our cat. He really wants to chase her and just barks up a storm and squeals when he sees her. This is definitely going to take some training on our part! The poor cat hasn't come out of hiding since he arrived. Yikes! He gets along great with our Beagle. They hit it off right away!

Victor will be forever ours. :)
