I heard it takes about 4 weeks for a dog to acclimate(sp?) to a new home. We have have Magoo just over a month and he has really gotten comfortable, for the good and the bad LOL. When he is relaxed you would never know he is here, belly up againist a door or couch. When he is in the mood though, he is trouble He is always stealing the kids toys, they are much more fun than his I guess...He has counter surfed/smelled a few times. He has also found the garbage...luckily he hasn't gotten anything. What a difference though from a bit timid 5 1/2 month old pup to this almost 7 month old pup. He looks so much older to me too. They sure grow up fast!!!
