HARRY WENT ON A HOMESTAY IN APRIL 2018.
We had Harry to stay for 2 nights and he was an absolute delight. He hopped into the car and popped himself straight down. Despite the hour and a half journey back into London, he was calm – stood up a couple of times but didn’t seem over fazed. We live near Dulwich Park but to get there involves walking along busy roads and Harry was (understandably) a bit wary of traffic, especially loud, roary buses/lorries etc but as this was his first experience of a busy road I’m sure he’d get used to it very quickly – he’s a very quick learner.
He loved being in the park – he can be a bit pully on the lead at times but, again, he’s a young lad and that can be changed. He is so good with other breeds – all sorts of shapes and sizes came up to say hello, some on lead, some off and he didn’t turn a hair – a tiny terrier actually jumped up in his face to say hello and he was totally fine with it. When he sees movement in the distance (whether dogs or anything else) he does stop and become alert, but after watching for a couple of seconds moves on. He is curious and (in a good way) quietly excited about everything and he is an absolute pleasure to walk.
At home, he was just the most perfect chilled house guest. He had a nose around, then settled down on the rug and within the hour, had moved onto his bed and knew exactly where he was happiest. He kept his eyes peeled on where we were but didn’t follow us – unless he thought it was coming near to dinner time – this gorgeous boy LOVES his food!
We left him downstairs when we went up to bed though we were more than happy for him to come up if he wanted to but he showed no interest in coming upstairs. He slept through the night without a peep and the lovely waggy tail welcome I got when I went down in the morning made my day. By the second day, he’d taken his place on the sofa and it felt as though he’d been there forever!
Harry is just adorable and anyone would be fortunate to have him in their family.
HARRY WENT TO THE PARK WITH CLÍONA B. ON APRIL 7th 2018. THIS IS WHAT CLÍ SAID ABOUT HARRY:
Harry is a social boy, who loves to meet people. He expresses interest in everything and reacts excitedly to everything new, while still having the most gentle of manner. We didn’t meet many other dogs but Harry wasn’t bothered by the swans or ducks, though he did use this walk to burn a lot of excited energy. He took it upon himself to greet other park walkers, which shows his charming, polite and inquisitive personality.
