Ella Boxer x DofB 2010 Crawley Sussex

Serious discussions are already underway with families on these dogs or the dogs have gone into a home on trial when circumstances have elements that need to be overcome/worked on before homing is confirmed.

Well first time back in Brox for a while and out with Ella, a dog with a good heart still getting her paws under her in kennels. Not much interested in treats so measuring walks by reference to tennis balls destroyed this was a 2 and a half ball walk. After a while she was fine with Bella but she is uncertain/anxious but not aggressive around other dogs just a little more calm and she will be relaxing like a champ.

I have the privilege of looking after Ella at the moment, and we're already very impressed with her progress, after just 3 days.

From being totally excited and over the top when she arrived (and she's still like that when you come in the door! Such a lovely welcome love4.gif) she has learned quickly to just slot into family life. She's very bright, and watches everything going on around her.

She's already made one half of the small settee her own, when she's not on her bed. This is excellent for me, for cuddles. thumbs.gif

I have to give great thanks to the lovely volunteer walkers who taught her to sit. She does it beautifully and you wouldn't believe it was a new skill. She also knows "bed", "down" and "no" - although she sometimes chooses to make her own interpretation of those commands -as in, she'll do it and then come straight back to what she was doing before! She also gives her paw when you have a treat in your hand and she's sitting nicely for you, bless her.

After a frantic half hour walk on Saturday when she arrived, and quite a difficult long walk on Sunday, she got better on Monday and more so this morning. Still pulling, but less desperate. Still lunging at other dogs, but I wondered how much of that was insecurity, so we'll have to see. I was out for nearly an hour and a half with her this morning, and most of it was great. She only got through 2 tennis balls! And yesterday she really enjoyed having a rubber ball for the whole hour and a half walk, but started trying to eat it when we got back in the car, so I had to retrieve it.

She did try to jump over me into the front of the car when we passed a dog walking on the pavement, and was growling and fretting, but she's already improved a lot and I'm sure she just needs more time to get used to her new life. As all the volunteer walkers seem to acknowledge, she wasn't happy in kennels in spite of the wonderful care she was getting, and she does want to be in a home environment.

I've got a couple of pics on my phone, so I'll try to upload them

She was desperate to get off the settee, but she stayed for me!

She knows how to relax - but she keeps an eye on everything going on!
