FAITH WENT TO WEST END GREEN WITH ONE OF OUR REGULAR VOLUNTEERS ON NOVEMBER 17th, 2017. THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT FAITH:
‘This morning’s best performance goes to………………FAITH!
The car park at West End was full of dogs and her only reaction was to stand and look at them all!
Later on, she and a Ridgeback had a stare-off at 20 paces (he broke first) but that was it. A poodle running around on the green caused a kangaroo-type lunge (just to prove it really was Faith) although nothing like she’d do in the old days. The big test was 3 Shih-tzu types on a narrow path. They virtually ran under her to get past and apart from some heavy breathing (which may have been me) she just stood there!
You’d never guess from her behaviour around the kennels but she’s quite anxious about the outside world and its frightening aliens, a.k.a. other breeds. It’s very rewarding to see her gaining confidence and beginning to work out how to deal with it all. Lovely girl!’
Faith went to Painshill Park with Clíona B. on November 5th 2017. This is what Clí said about Faith:
‘Faith is a lively girl who is popular with staff and walkers alike. She is a good traveller and bounded up the steps at Painshill. She loved receiving attention and cuddles from a lady we met at the gate and Faith patiently waited while we chatted.
On our walk we saw two small fluffies in the distance and Faith was eager to get closer, so she will need more socializing until she doesn’t pull as much when she meets other breeds. Despite being 7.5 years old and having spent the last 4 years at WGW she is really quirky and doesn’t act her age.
She has been at overlooked for quite a while and has a large fan club of volunteers who would be delighted for her to go to a home.’
