Bertie's progress through our Rescue below
Original Referral information : We work with our dogs & often reveal a different picture & positive skills as they build trust. 15.04.18: Urgent dog- dies this weekend

"Bertie is a mastiff cross breed.
We are no longer able to keep him (our landlord served us with eviction, only will take notice back if we re-home him). I am expecting twins very soon, and we are in a 1 bed flat in London.
He's a big softy loves food and attention.
We have him since he was 1 month old, and he’s now 5 years old.
He’s travelled in and out of the country with us on holiday’s.
We asked family & friends but unfortunately they either already have animals, or cannot to commit.
He's fully house trained and we would not recommend for him to be rehomed with other dogs/cats, as he is not too good with them.
He's good with children from age 6+ , he's very good with little ones also, but because he's so big he doesn't understand that they are too small to play with him.
Please help, we are heartbroken to rehome our boy, but do not want him ending up in wrong hands or getting pts "

That is all they have put. Posted 15th April. Will be put to sleep on the 25th if no space.

Thanks for looking Lynne and considering x Carolyn

I met Bertie today. He was a little nervous in the kennel and already harnessed, Lynne accompanied me, he stood quietly while I placed a lead on him. I used chain leads as I had been advised he grabs.On exiting the kennels he made an initial grab but stopped as soon as we got into stride. He walked beautifully, gently plodding along. On the walk on two separate occasions we met other RR guests and stood aside to let them pass. On both occasions Bertie was impeccable although he looked towards them he stood calmly and showed no reaction particularly impressive as one of the dogs was reactive. Bertie repeated his calm persona on our return to the kennel yard there were two dogs on the way to exercise again Bertie showed no reaction. He does become agitated in the kennel but on today's experience calms when outside. I found him to be a gentle easy to handle lad.

I had my first walk with Bertie yesterday. What a gorgeous big hunk he is! A very easy walk, he plods along, no pulling. Afterwards we had a cuddle in his kennel. love4.gif I am looking forward to getting to know him better.

I had a very wet walk with Bertie today. He was not the least bit bothered by the rain or the mud. At the end of the walk we caught up behind Rebecca walking Rolo. Bertie kept an eye on them but did not react or even bark, it will be interesting to see how he handles getting nearer dogs on future walks. On this walk Bertie enjoyed taking treats which he didn't do on Saturday. He is still a bit aloof when walking but back at the kennel he enjoyed a cuddle with me and I even got a kiss. Gorgeous boy!

The last couple of walks with Bertie have been in the sunshine which has been lovely for both of us. Bertie is a very chilled out boy on his walks. He enjoys munching on some grass and strolling along. He doesn't pull on the lead and doesn't walk that fast so it is always very leisurely walk with him.

It is a great pleasure getting to know this lovely lad. love4.gif

I met Bertie for the first time on Wednesday when he joined me and a potential new volunteer for a walk. He gave me a very happy greeting in his kennel and was very obliging in me getting his harness on for his walk. I'd read that Bertie can be worried by other dogs, but as he is so responsive on the lead, it was really easy asking him to keep moving when we passed any other dogs. Back at his kennel he gave me some cuddles and I gave him some little sausages as a thank you for a lovely walk. Bertie is a scrumptious boy love4.gif
