Victor's progress through our Rescue below
Original Referral information : We work with our dogs & often reveal a different picture & positive skills as they build trust. 12.08.18: Hello Lynne
Would you be able to help with a 2 year old male rough coated Lurcher who has reached our stray kennels. From what I have been told he is fine when he knows you but has to be muzzled meeting strangers, then when he knows them he is fine. Lived a sheltered life on a farm, owner rehomed because in spite of being fine around family he was threatening with strangers / visitors. To cut a long story short he was taken to a well known Rescue but they did not keep him and brought him back to the pound. This lad faces an uncertain future.
NB I have not actually seen him but this is the information I have been given
Thank you xMargaret

Aaww, bless you, Victor. You just need the right family. Our Benny Lurcher's 'stranger danger' has improved so much over the years. I just know you have potential! love4.gif

Victor has arrived and is wary but enjoying being hand fed through his kennel door to build up trust

Dear Victor has come around much quicker than we expected . The staff have been hand feeding him and everyone has been gently talking with him and he has moved closer. Charlie offered him some potent smells to support him with his nerves.

Today we talked about taking a step towards contact, other than through the door and we agreed to put a slip lead over his head if he offered it on opening his kennel, and then to gently walk him away from the kennels...all went to plan and here are some pictures and a video of Victor first appearance with Ella and Jemma

I’ve walked Victor 4 times this last week, he’s actually a favourite.
Had an initial intro (as in went in the kennel first and I followed) with one of the kennel girls and he really wasn’t bothered and now we’re fine. He’s so easy to walk, no pulling thinks about going for squirrels but doesn’t. When passing a stranger I keep him on a short lead and he’s fine with that, but does always like to look at them and I think he does want to make friends.
Victor will happily take a cuddle but not overly fussed and isn’t bouncy at all.
Fingers crossed for you buddy!

I echo all that April has said in the previous post. Victor has really settled and I got a friendly greeting from him when I was introduced to him in the paddock. Victor enjoyed a social walk with Billy dog this morning and both dogs showed polite, respectful behaviour and communication, enjoying sharing their walk but not bothering each other. (see video)

Victor likes a good old mooch and sniff around while he is out on his walk. Consequently he is easy to walk, very relaxed and happy. He does occasionally bark at passing dogs, but that is all it is, just noise, then he gets back to his sniffing.
