TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Rainbow is a chilled out sort of dog that doesn’t push himself forward and can come across as rather shy or aloof. While it’s true he would benefit from someone to help him gain confidence, we think there’s a bouncy side just waiting to come out.
One of our volunteers took him for a trip out and this is what she had to say,
“I took Rainbow out for an hour this morning to get a better idea of how nervous he was. He isn’t particularly nervous at all, but in a very sweet kind of way, is a bit clueless about the big wide world, and how to interact outside of the kennel environment.
Having lifted him into the car, I took him to Pets at Home Merry Hill first, as we needed a couple of purchases. He wasn’t phased by the busy car park and happily entered the store by my side. I showed him the pick and mix, we checked out the charity bin and then stood in the checkout queue to be served. Two very posh fluffies were immediately in front of us and he completely ignored them.
We then went to Quarry Bank Park, where we saw a few off lead dogs and again he was not at all interested. Left to his own devices he just stood and stared aimlessly, but as soon as I called his name and engaged with him he trotted happily along with me.
When it was time to return to kennels he virtually got himself into the car.
He was an absolute pleasure this morning and clearly just needs guidance and encouragement from a calm and confident handler.”
If you are that calm and confident handler then Rainbow may be just the dog for you. If you’d like to visit this sweet boy, then give us a ring on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to make an appointment.
