That is so cool!
I bet that Oakley has already forgotten his previous home. After all, your home is way more fun than being the only dog in a family.
A dog needs to be a dog, and have doggie as well as human interaction !
Reading the body language of a tailless dog has been interesting skill for me to learn. I had grown accustomed to reading the emotional state of a dog based in part by their tail position, Oakley has a bit of a tail, but not much, so is at a bit of a disadvantage for me (and other dogs) to read him. So I am learning to watch more closely and pick out his other signals,- ear position, tension in his body, face, mouth or lowering of the body, (hind end - ready to run) or standing taller on his toes, on the alert, (ears up, looking around) hackles raised (often accompanied by a low growl or barking). And of course, the good stuff, the relaxed face and posture, the loose wiggly all over greetings, the tail wags (if I watch closely for it), curiosity, 'questioning' whether something is 'safe' or not.
It was interesting to read this on a site, I was looking at, something that I hadn't yet considered...
"Dogs without tails communicate, but they have limitations. They may approach other dogs or people cautiously to avoid miscommunication. They depend on other aspects of body language such as ear position, facial expression, and stance to communicate their intentions."
He is truly a joy, a perfect fit! He is truly a fun dog, with a wonderful and gentle temperament, a true gift! Loves to play, (and learn), of course, settles nicely when I need him to, and has brought a ton of 'sunshine' into my life.
