Graham needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Graham was found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a council pound. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place. Graham is now neutered, chipped & fully vaccinated. Graham currently in boarding kennels in Broxbourne sharing a kennel with Annie a DDB

***PLEASE HELP: We have to ask for suggested min. donation £175 at the time of adoption, to support so many dogs in kennels. We have no state sponsorship and exist on the goodwill of the public and our supporters. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life.

I've walked Graham a few times now and he is a beautiful boy, gorgeous colours! He's always happy and playful, he walks nicely on the lead without pulling and he meets other dogs happily. We also met a horse on our walks and although he was interested he wasn't too bothered. He also loved belly rubs! love4.gif

Out with young Graham who is a lovely good natured lad, not particularly treat orientated, that is to say he liikkkes sausages but unlike some dogs I could name does not track hand to pouch to person like some of his compardres do. Very good when he takes treats and good on the extender but does not really respond to his name nor is he particularly focused on his handler so a bit of a work in progress that will need a few more walks. No vices though, although a bit too friendly for Bella but he is easily corrected and does know sit and paw. Bit of a puzzle is Graham at the moment but he is nice natured so just some work required.

We took the strikingly handsome Graham out for a walk at dusk on Sunday. Anyone who has ever tried to photograph a brindle dog in poor light knows exactly the problems this created.

This. This is what I'm talking about! Blurry, beautiful brindle boy

You'll have to take my word for it... Graham is beeeeeeaaaauuutiful. Despite his wonderful photo shoot with SarahK, I hadn't quite picked up on just how handsome he is from his forum thread so can only assume that this is another boy who doesn't do himself full justice in pictures - in 'person' he took my breath away! I think I spent the first full ten minutes of the walk shouting things like 'Holy Maloney this is a good looking dog!' and 'Look at his coat! Look at his curly tail! Isn't he handsome?!' before I frankly became embarrassed of myself.

Check out that lovely coat!

Graham, in sharp contrast, is cool as a cucumber. He's happy to have a quick stroke and a fuss, but then he wants to be back off exploring please! He's filled out since arriving so there was a mad scramble for a harness to fit, and he strutted along on his walk very much pulling off his hot pink trimmings.

What a good looking boy!

Oh, hi!

He's super into treats (great news for training!) and knows a good sit and paw, and remembers his general manners even in the face of sausages.

"Is that a sausage? I think it's a sausage!"


image.jpeg
Look at his little 'paw'! I didn't even ask for 'paw', he just hedged his bets

Another 'sit'

He walked well with kennel friend Annie and met a veritable herd of friendly off-lead labs beautifully - waggy tail and happy demeanour throughout.

Really can't picture this handsome chap hanging around for long - if you like what you see, get your rehoming form in while you still can!

First time in walking gentle giant Graham. He is such a handsome boy. He has such a puppy like character with lots of energy so I had my running shoes on and we run....which he loved.
When we got back to kennels he thought he was going somewhere when Adam had his van door open so Graham thought he would just invite himself and jumped in. He is a funny character this gorgeous boy. Not the easiest of models to take photos of and they haven't come out that clear but hey you will see how handsome he is
