Hope all is good with you. I have another boy-who is currently with a rescue friend but they cannot rehome him as he has lunged on a walk. We believe Louie is afraid of strangers.

Seems good other dogs. He's only a young dog so God knows what he's been through Carolynx

Lynne introduced me to Louie today and we all had a lovely relaxed walk together. Louie did bark at a couple of passing dogs to let them know he was around but other than that he seemed quite settled with us. Early days but you can see the intelligence in his eyes and he is rather handsome.

I had my first walk with Louie today. He seems quite timid but very friendly. He walked very nicely and took no notice of the traffic. He sat nicely whilst a couple of other dogs passed us in the car park but did have a little bark at Mika who was barking at him so who can blame him!
Lovely boy!

I had the pleasure of walking with Louie this morning. Louie gave me a lovely welcome in his kennel and we were soon heading out into the sunshine. Louie has a lovely relaxed vibe and we wandered slowly, Louie walking with a loose lead and stopping now and again to investigate all the new smells. We passed a couple of Labradors on lead and Louie looked but then walked on with no fuss. He was very tuned in and connected and was happy to go wherever I asked him to, or move on if asked. He did take an interest in the squirrels in the wood but again it was easy to get him to focus back on his walk. Back in his kennel, Louie leaned into my leg for cuddles and politely took his treat. What a wonderful, friendly boy. xx

Now that I have got to know Louie better, turns out he is just a big softie. Sporting a new harness we headed out into the sunshine and other than if he spotted some interesting wildlife, Louie just walked calmly by my side with a loose lead. He is very tuned in and very responsive so even if he does think about chasing something he is easily distracted to focus back on his walk. I think his paws are a bit sore or sensitive at the moment so we didn't walk too far but sat down in the grass for a while. Louie tried to get all of him onto my lap but when that didn't work he snuggled up as close as he could get and as soon as I rubbed him tummy, he rolled over and just lay there, legs in the air, grin on his face. love4.gif
