Oh bless him! He is such a chilled boy, he travelled in my front passenger seat last week from Guildford to Gatwick, it was a bit like transporting a very well mannered bear, love this boy, give him hugs from me please love4.gif

Thank you for giving him time out of the kennels and looking after / spoiling him so well. You're doing a great job as well as showing potential families what a chilled and lovely boy he is around the home.

Things have started to settle in here now, Coco is still a little intimidated by Neko but they are learning each other nicely. For an older boy he has plenty of energy and play in him, he even does a little dance when he realises he is going to be going out! When he tries to play he is incredibly gentle with his mouthing and although he can fit Coco's entire head in his mouth, he clearly has no ill intent towards her. He does a great sit on command and also does a very emphatic "paw" when asked, so emphatic that you had better be braced and ready to receive it!

Alfie the cat is staying out of his way as much as possible, not that Neko has shown the slightest interest in chasing him or even going near him.

He travels really well in the car, originally I put him in the big crate in the boot, but this is clearly too small for him to be comfortable in, so now he travels on the back seat. He loves being able to stick his face out of the window!

We went to Buchan Park for a walk the other day, this has a lake especially for doggy dips, I was very glad I had used a longer lead for this walk else I think I would have gone for a dip as well. As others in the thread have said; Neko loves water. A lot.
He was very muddy when I eventually persuaded him to get out

He is incredibly chilled out and no situation seems to fluster him. He's absolutely fine on a walk, he loves sniffing every tree and bush, he will greet other dogs and people nicely or ignore them if they ignore him(or there is a good smell) This weekend he met my cousins two little children aged 2 and 4(the oldest is very scared of dogs) and Neko was perfect with them, he let them give him strokes before finding a cool spot to lay down.

I honestly can't think of anything really bad to say about him, I think just about the only slightly bad thing is his love of food combined with his size means that it's vital that nothing edible is left within range on kitchen worktops! He is just a smashing boy who is chilled and relaxed, he isn't a dog that is going to drown you in kisses (although he does give incredible delicate ones on occasion) but he does love a fuss once he gets to know you. If you are looking for a low maintenance but dedicated and reliable companion, who as a bonus looks like a teddy bear, you really couldn't go wrong with this boy. Fingers crossed that his forever home is just around the corner! Who could resist having this boy sleeping at their feet?!?

I know I only posted an update yesterday, but I also have to share this bit of Coco and Neko having a little play yesterday. I think it shows just what a gentle giant this chap is
