Porridge and I had a great walk today although he did prefer the sit down and cuddles. He is a dear, sweet little terrier who will respond to love and time spent with him. He enjoyed all the sniffs in the woods and meets other dogs well. A dear little chap who needs his own home asap. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

Porridge finds kennel life tough so has come home with me for the weekend. He is a sensitive, gentle soul so chaos and lots of noise is hard on him.

A dinkier, sweeter little chap would be hard to find.

He is the most loving, cuddly little terrier ever! He is desperate to be loved and he is certainly that in this house.

He has met my four dogs very well (3 of my own and ex RR Pattie Ronnie, was Magic, who is here on a little break).
Porridge loves his people and seems to be very people orientated rather than a dog who revels in being in a pack. It is early days though so we shall see.....

We had a wander around a busy town and Porridge wasn’t fazed by anything at all including bikes and prams and was a chipper chap at all times. He was beautifully behaved on the lead too. I think I could have held his lead on my little finger so easy was he.
Later on we all had an hour off lead in an enclosed field and all dogs were very happy.

I love this little man. He's just so cuddly! He's a bit nervous of sudden or loud noises bless him. Anyone want a beautiful, friendly and lap-sized terrier? Porridge is your man!

Well, what a transformation!
2 weeks ago a petrified little lad sat trembling in his kennel......
Today, a smiling, bouncing little bean gave me an ecstatic welcome at his kennel door.
I couldnt be more chuffed for this little boy that he seems to be more accepting of that fact that his life has changed so massively.

The kennel grounds were quiet today so I popped on a long line and Porrridge bounded and skipped around loving all the sniffs and smells in the long grass.

We then had a game of ball in the paddock which Porridge loved.
When I had a sit down Porridge jumped onto my knee and proceeded to have a nice half hour gently chewing at the ball - all the time staying on my knee.

Our time together was ended with Porridge giving me THE most loving cuddles with a teeny tiny paw on each of my shoulders as if he wanted to properly hug me. Bless.

Porridge has totally stolen my heart. He's so loving but so tiny and gentle. He's a bit timid sometimes but he absolutely loves being held and cuddled. He's an absolute sweetheart who needs a quiet loving home.

A rather worried Porridge has come to stay for a while. So far he's largely ignored Harpo and Zeppo and been rather puzzled by Alfredo's invitations to play. What really matters is food (he's quite skinny), cuddles and a bit of time with a tennis ball. Now that I've put a crate in the kitchen he seems to feel more secure and relaxed but there's clearly quite a way to go …

Porridge coped very well with life in foster -including dealing with the home team - and a rather more confident little Jack Russell met Romey and David yesterday. They have had dogs all their lives and understand that Porridge needs to learn quite a few skills to be really settled and happy. After some time cuddling and walking with his new people here in Kingston Porridge was on his way to rural Herefordshire and the quiet life he needs. Apparently he slept through most of the journey. As you can see from pictures David and Romey kindly sent me it looks like Porridge - now Porrit - has already settled in (sorry I can't seem to lighten the shot of Porrit relaxing on the back of the sofa). Thank you both for giving this special boy a chance to shine.
