If my vet told me 3 months later they'd screwed up and not given my two the de-worming medicine they needed, that would be my last visit there.  My white girl Sadie has a ton of smaller spots, mainly brindle, but you can see a couple fawn colored spots.  By all the pics I've seen, the spots will get bigger the older they get.  Sadie picks everything up to.  She's my troublemaker.

He is just the cutest!!  

I would definitely look into another vet, I'd be scared to bring him there again.  Sounds like he's doing great!  I still have difficulty walking Lola sometimes, she wants to sniff everything and every time a person or dog walks near us she'll stop, sit and watch them, or pull me towards them.  Lola finally grew out of her grass and twig eating phase, so hopefully he will soon.  I occasionally have to pull a leave or something from her mouth, but nothing like when she was little!!  

Good luck with everything!

Try making your lead shorter. I tied a loop in out leash so I have an extra handle, Fredo is forced to keep his head up and close to my body, and we kind of "power walk" so he doesn't get distracted. Although yesterday we were out and someone's little dog came running across the street to us and wouldn't leave Fredo alone. He started getting into play mode and it took a while to pullhim back. I hate when people have their dogs running around off leash in the front yard, especially in front of a pretty busy street, come on now!

I would switch vets too.   Sounds like he is doing well for 4 moonths old; we need update pics of that cutie.

he is so cute! our is also 4 months and a vacuum indoors and out, and on a walk she'll heel as long as there are not distractions, if something walks/runs/flies by forget it she's gone lol, lately I've been making her sit and stay until the distraction passes :)
