With him being so young, I really feel he was mistreated in his short life. It took my 16 year old son only a day to gain his trust, but it took several days for my husband and I to get on his good side. After that, he has been all hugs and kisses, playful, letting us pick him up and love on him. He just needed to feel loved and secure.
