Clifford landed with us around 6 weeks ago after I happened across him in the local pound due to be euthanised! I was furious as this boy has been through around three sets of hands in my own street and could see he was being failed and messed up and had offered to assist.
On landing in our care its clear to see that Clifford was terrified and totally undersocialised. He was snappy and shouty with the other dogs and a nightmare on lead. Non of it was aggression just having no idea how to behave.
Now just six weeks on and after castration had also taken effect Clifford is coming on in leaps and bounds. He is starting to love the other dogs company at the kennels although we are still working on his leap in and say hello greating and his leads manners with the help of a head collar are starting to settle.
THIS IS ONE INTELLIGENT PLEASANT DOG LET ME TELL YOU AND HIS POTENTIAL IS IMMENSE!
Clifford understands everything and his recall and joy off lead is a so lovely to watch. I know he has never been allowed off before and has just had five minute pee *drags* so now seeing him get the chance to behave like a dog is fabulous. In the paddock he was spot on with every instruction and both myself and Jen were doing the *if only*.
We are going to continue to work with Clifford for a while moreso because we are enjoying seeing just how far and how quickly we can bring this boy. Someone is going to have a very highly trainable sweet natured dog with this lad.
"There's nothing that can't be done if we raise our voice as one."
Thank God that you saw him in the pound Lisa,as,at least now this special little man has a fantastic future ahead..........dosnt bear thinking about had you not spotted him ,eh. He is stunning,and, I am sure he will end up being some lucky persons heart dog for sure, Bless Him

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
