BABS WENT ON FOSTER WITH DAVE H. IN MARCH 2018. THIS IS WHAT DAVE SAID ABOUT BABS:
When Babs came to us on a foster for a few days it meant we had 7 dogs at Halletts Hounds!
Babs was a little anxious when she first arrived but having six other hounds sniffing around her would make any dog a bit wary of their new surroundings. She did not react at all to the others and once they ignored her off she went to investigate.
She went to the toilet in the garden then followed the pack into the house and had a good look around. Within a minute she was up on the sofa rolling onto her back waiting for a belly rub.
Babs settled in to home life very quickly she even went up the stairs on her own and found our bed.Coming down the stairs she is not so confident and requires assistance until she is comfortable.
She is very clean and never once toileted in the house. Every dinner we gave her she ate it all up along with the treats, of course. At night she slept right through with no problems at all.
She is a very sweet natured girl and loves playing with her ball. She never once showed any aggression to the other dogs and they in return didn’t to her. Due to her having a front toe removed recently she is walking with a limp. She is gradually getting better and when fully healed I’m sure she will be walking fine.
It has been a real pleasure having her in our home to see what she is like away from the kennels. I am glad to say it is a glowing report and I hope this positive review will help her find a forever home of her own. Her affectionate nature would make her a great addition to any family.
BABS WENT TO THE PARK WITH CLÍONA B. ON JANUARY 6TH 2018. THIS IS WHAT CLÍ SAID ABOUT BABS:
Babs is a sweetnatured softie who loved her trip to Painshill Park. She needed to be lifted into the car but settled quickly despite being bounced against by her kennel mate Homer who sought the best view. Babs doesn’t like to miss a trick, taking a great interest in every single thing.
This confident lady has a little bounce in her step when she sees something new, from swans and ducks to the lovely view from the highest point of the park. We didn’t meet many dogs up close but with the new surroundings and the spring in her step, I’m sure Babs would love more opportunities to have a break away from the kennels so she can learn about the outside world that interests her so much.
BABS WENT TO ESHER COMMON WITH ALICE AND MARCO ON NOVEMBER 12th 2017. THIS IS WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT BABS:
‘At the kennels Babs is full of life and you can see her lovely personality shine through in her cheeky grin.
Outside the kennels this sweet little girl is a little anxious. Although she jumped into the car by herself she did not settle. Her anxiousness showed while we were walking and she kept looking behind. She enjoyed lots of reassurance and TLC.
Babs would benefit from more walks at an on-lead park so she can get used to seeing other breeds from a safe distance and blossom into the wonderful, fun girl we see in the safety of the kennels.’
