TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Charlie’s trainer told us when he dropped him off that “he’s a lovely natured dog, a real gentleman.” And so far this is what we’ve found.
He is slightly on the shy side and wasn’t keen when we introduced him to a family with 3 young children.
Two of our volunteers, Neil and Heather, took Charlie to the park recently and reported. “He was a completely different dog! Interested in all the new sights smells and sounds he only got spooked by a pram and some bikes but we got the feeling it’s just because that was the first time he saw such things.
He got very nervous when a big group of young kids came running past so might not be suitable for large families or ones with young kids.
Absolutely no problem with any of the dogs we met. He was interested in the small ones but not overly so. He even made a new friend with a beautiful red setter. A collie growled at him when they had had enough of sniffing each other but that was entirely the collie, it was a recent re-home from the Collie Trust.
The rest of the time (when not sniffing like a bloodhound) Charlie was prancing around as if he was a finalist in Crufts. Definitely a confident boy buried in there somewhere!
Wasn’t keen on getting in the car. I had to lift and carry him a few feet to get him in but once in the boot he was good as gold.
All in all Charlie surprised us both with just how much of a good dog he was.”
So with that glowing report, if you think you can offer Charlie a forever home, then give us a ring on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to come make an appointment for a visit.
