Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Sure. I just adopted a wonderful 11 month old Pit/Lab mix. He is super lovey and an extremely calm and well-natured little boy. He has been with the foster
family for about 5 months so we decided on a slow transition. Weekends only so he can get used to the house and area. He goes in his crate voluntarily when I'm at home, and I finally was able to close the door while here to do some chores. I've taken him to friends' houses where he checks in with me, but mostly enjoys running around with her pup, even when I left for a few minutes. I've even had a friend here and he was vigilant and calm while I ran to the store for a short time. Last night, I finally closed the crate and left. I waited outside (plus watched him on video from my phone) and he was barking, digging and throwing a fit in his crate. This morning I took him back to his foster so I can work, but this time, he didn't want to go with them. Needless to say we've finally formed a bond and I can tell he feels that this is now where he wants to be. I wish I could just pick him back up tonight and he'd be ok while I go to work tomorrow, but he hasn't experienced that with me yet, even though he is used to his foster family leaving him while they're at work. I don't want to keep him lingering. I spoke with a trainer that has interacted with him a lot and she said he doesn't have separation anxiety, it's more of an abandonment issue. What do you suggest? If he was ok with me being gone for 8 hours, I'd go get him tonight and not wait til the weekend. He really loves it here. It's calm instead of being with other fosters and young kids. He sleeps so soundly here. Sorry this was so long
