TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Handsome Jack has been returned to us after being a home for around 18 months due to his adopter’s ill health.
He is just a youngster and they found they just couldn’t meet his needs and as a result he wasn’t getting walked outside of the garden for some time. So one of our volunteers took his to a local nature reserve and he found it all a bit overwhelming, poor chap.
He was nervous getting into the car and stood for much of the 15 minute journey. When he arrived he needed encouragement to get out of the car, but once out his tail started wagging and he was ready to go! He walked beautifully on the lead and his nose was always down for a sniff. Everything that could be weed on, was!
Because he hasn’t had much exposure to other dogs he was fine observing them from a distance but found them too much if he needed to pass them on a narrow path. This wasn’t helped by an offlead dog who lunged and snapped at him, knocking his confidence even further.
Jack had a lot to contend with on his walk but was fine with cyclists and even a squirrel that ran across his path. On the way home he was a little more relaxed, although still anxious in the car. He did lie down for the journey home, which was an improvement.
Jack is going to need some TLC and someone who can boost his confidence out in the big wide world. He’s a worried dog who has many years of love to give the right person. He will need an patient and understanding owner. If this is you, then give us a ring on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to make an appointment to visit our kennels.
