TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Ollie has been with us for awhile now and we’d really like find him his forever family. So to get him ready for family life, our volunteers have been taking Ollie home to get him used to being out of kennels. The most recent trip out was with Donna and Craig, and here is what they have to say:
“Took Ollie out for the afternoon today, seriously cannot fault this boy at all. Walked him for an hour first around the fields near Broadmarsh this morning and he walks so well on the lead, shows interest in everything around him but doesn’t pull at all.
He had a good mooch around Craig’s house, went up and down the stairs with ease and kept going to bed! He loves having a good stretch on the bed and a belly rub. He loves looking at himself in the mirror too… Well he is a gorgeous boy after all ❤️
He likes to try and steal your food when you’re eating but this was soon rectified with a stern “no” and gently turning him away. He soon learnt if he didn’t steal food he got a small kibble and after that let us eat our dinner with no interest at all. This is something that new owners could easily work on as he does anything for a bit of kibble.
Took him to the park, he gets in and out the car easily and loves to look out of the window to see what’s going on. At the park he walked beautifully, watched some puppies being trained and showed absolutely no reaction whatsoever. Other dogs running past didn’t affect him at all,he simply looked and walked on.
Loud music being played at a local event in the park didn’t faze him in the slightest. He Saw a squirrel, showed interest and watched a bit didn’t pull to get to it. Walked past lots of geese and ducks and didn’t even bat an eyelid, even came face to face with a duck that walked straight towards him but he couldn’t have been less bothered, if anything he backed off.
This boy was golden from start to finish and would be a fantastic addition to someone’s home ❤️❤️
