energy; always on the go. His brains won't come in the mail for a
good year or so. Until he is completely reliable in the house,
confine him to a room that has been dog-proofed or confine him to a
crate while you are out. That way, he will be unable to eat your
furniture. Give him a stuffed Kong before you go out. If you have to
be gone all day, see about having someone come in to take him out
around noon. Another alternative would be doggy day care- the
activities there would be good for him, and your house would be safe.
When the temperature is over 100, leaving him outside is risky.
Even with shade and access to water, heat stroke is a real
possibility. If you have neighbors, leaving him outside alone all day
can be risky too. If he barks and annoys the neighbors, you would
have a problem. Someone could come and steal him; someone could hurt
him or he could get out of the fence and be gone.

It's important to keep an open mind,
But not so open that your brains fall out.
