I had the pleasure of taking beautiful Mandy out again today and we had such a lovely walk. We must have passed about 10 dogs today and she was so good, her doggie socialisation skills are improving all the time. She sat so nicely for treats and gave me her paw when asked.

We went to the paddock after our walk so Mandy could have a bit of chilled time trotting round finding bits of apple I threw for her.

She is such a sweet heart and just needs a loving home to give her lots of love bring her on to be the amazing dog she is. love4.gif

I walked Mandy for the first time this weekend and I'm a huge fan! I had met her at her kennel door a few times in the past and she can look a bit intimidating because of her size and musculature (check out her shoulder definition below!) however she has the softest coat, is extremely people friendly and was very easy to walk.

I had read that Mandy is not too fond of random dogs getting in her face however on our walk Mandy behaved perfectly - we had 2 run ins with off lead dogs (a labrador and a pointer) and both times Mandy sat quietly at my feet. She is very treat focussed and very responsive to commands which makes her easily manageable - the training and positive environment she gets with the walkers has obviously improved her confidence a lot.

It was quite warm on Saturday and I learnt Mandy loves a swim - she is a bit goofy when it comes to water as she doesnt seem to check the depth before stepping in, resulting in an undignifed dunking in the river and me almost following her in.

After our walk I ended up sat in her kennel for a long time as it is very sweet how much Mandy loves the company - once I sat on the floor she sat down next to me with her head on my knee and just seemed so relaxed that its hard to leave her on own again. I really hope her family finds her soon.

It was a pleasure to walk Mandy again today. Very sweet and well behaved, just happy to spend time with you and to receive attention and cuddles, respectful and easy to harness and so on.

Delighted to see Mandy again today - such a lovely natured girl. Easily harnessed and off we went. She totally ignored Rolo who gave her a good shouting at from his kennel as we passed. I love how Mandy investigates everything of interest on her walk - thoroughly enjoying every second of her time out. Kim passed us with new terrier Winston and both dogs gave each other what for.....we then passed them again 10 minutes later with the same reaction. However, 5 seconds later Mandy had forgotten all about it and was back to smooching about in the woods. I received lovely cuddles in the poets hut and a full face wash!! She’s adorable. Xx

Mandy going into the paddock last night how she shies away from the dogs at the ends of their kennels. Mandy is a sniffer very much into the smells on her walks

Love this sweet girl love4.gif
Such a playful, cuddly pup who was happy to lie in the shade with me in exchange for belly rubs!

I have made a video of Mandy below:

Great video natdugdale! You've captured her well :goodjob.gif:

Mandy is a sweetheart who loves her humans. She does need support when out walking but is keen to please her people and will positively respond to distractions and support by her walker. Please do consider Mandy angel13.gif]
We love walking our kennel dogs! If you'd like to volunteer too:

Today was my first walk with Mandy and what a charming lady she is. We had a medium sized walk where once settled she showed great elegance and control. Her warm heart and kindly ways won me over as did her walking style. She is a powerful dog but shows good restraint. These traits should set her up well for future homing.
I enjoyed my walk and walk of the day goes to Mandy. Thanks for an enjoyable controlled walk.

My sons first walk with Mandy today - but pretty sure it won’t be their last! Mandy is a gorgeous girl - loves people and is a real softy. She loves to be told what a good girl she is and leans in for cuddles. Mandy needs support when passing other dogs - a few kind but firm words and to keep moving does the trick - as soon as they’ve passed, she’s forgotten all about them and certainly doesn’t seek them out. I think she only tells them off because they’re disturbing her walk......and intruding on her sniffing out new scents. She’s a lovely girl, lovely natured and totally charmed my son today. Xx
