Bertie needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Bertie was found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a council pound. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Bertie's life. Bertie is now neutered, chipped, has a passport and fully vaccinated. Bertie is in foster sharing with 4 other Jack Russells in Horley near Gatwick

Bertie has arrived in Rescue as a cowering terrier who was scared of his own shadow. Bertie has taken a lot of confidence from his foster pack and shone out as his little character begins to enjoy home life. Bertie loves to lounge on furniture and is alert to passersby. He travels well in a crate within a car and has even share a crate on the very long night journey to South France and back. Bertie can still flinch for example when a ball thrower is used but is with each day learning to trust and learning to share. Bertie can be left within a pack for spells during the day when his humans are out. Bertie adores other dogs company and has obviously lived with other dogs before. Bertie needs to homed with at least one other dog.

Rachel and I popped over to Godstone this morning to photograph the new arrivals, Zoe was walking past the paddock and said she had Bertie but he was very nervous.

Rachel popped out to say hello and when I looked over Bertie was literally in the bushes trying to hide he was that scared!

We eventually took Bertie into the paddock where he sat on Rachel's lap looking very unsure of what was going on, to be honest it wouldn't have been any good trying to take photos of Bertie his demeanor was very anxious. although he did perk up slightly when another dog walked past, after a quick conversation with Lynne we decided to bring Bertie home with us for the night.
He travelled well sitting on Rachel's lap, I jumped out the car and nipped in doors to harness up our four, all four were quite vocal when they first saw Bertie , he just looked away.

After a half hour walk we all went indoors, we put Bertie in the back room and put in the stair gate. That way we could see Bertie and vice versa and our four could safely say hello without too much trouble. After an hour Rachel mentioned that that when I walked back in the room his tail wagged, progresss!!.
Below is a short video of Bertie less than 2 hours after arriving. He certainly perked up just within a few hours of being here. I took out two boys out for a walk and he freely mixed with the two girls. The boys are ok with him (Ralphie desperately want to play) but were conscious of the fact he was only neutered a few days ago and we didn't want to risk his stitches coming out.

Whilst out with the boys, our daughter took a couple of photos of Bertie and our Poppy with Rachel, he wasn't too sure of the flash going off so decided to stop but he's a lot more comfortable around us now than earlier in the day. Bertie has just finished off a bowl of chicken & rice and is currently lying at my feet whilst I type this. Hopefully tomorrow I get more photos and a nice video too.

Well what was an overnight stay for Bertie has turned into a weeks stay (at least). thumbs.gif

Bertie spent literally all of yesterday (Sunday) asleep in his bed, he ventured into the lounge when the sun came out and spent the morning with our four. At the moment he's not that keen to go out, he goes into the garden, does his business and then straight back in.
I can confirm Bertie so far is house trained, sleeps through the night, albeit with Rachel to cuddle, he didn't appear phased by the hoover and we both noticed he listens to the sounds on the tv. Bertie was very submissive to us on the first day but this morning his tail is up when he goes out (in between sleeping) and he's slowly getting use to us. He's very respectful of our four and vice versa.

Our daughter is absolutely smitten with him :smiley-love014.gif: - In fact were all smitten with him and that includes the dogs too!

Oh yes, he loves cheese, I gave him a very small piece and when I was coming back with a second piece his whole body was wiggling with excitement :D
A short video taken yesterday morning and first thing this morning.
