Carter is going to have Guildford walkers queuing up! Lovely and friendly when you go into the kennel, he puts the harness on for you, walks by your side on a lovely loose lead and you can't but help wanting to stop for some cuddles. Such a gentle guy (and his colouring is fab)

I asked if I could walk Carter on Saturday and I was welcomed again with a big hug and kisses (front legs on me) and then we were off..... well a stroll pace. We walked with Codi (walked by Mandy) and Carter was happy to follow, especially as he could have a good old sniff and sometimes this was of Codi's bottom!! Luckily Codi is such a relaxed guy on his walks, he didn't mind. Carter loved watching him.

Carter likes to walk close, lean in and the lead is just soo slack its untrue. After the walk with Codi, we then took Carter for a little trip in Mandy's car. He travel so well in the boot, he settled straight away, he walked happily around new surroundings with us and then when it came to travelling back he stretched out and went to sleep. angel13.gif]

I can only second what Linda has said about Carter, a very gentle, calm and well behaved boy, such an easy dog especially considering his young age and oh so very lovable. love4.gif

My first walk with Carter today, what a lovely sensitive affectionate boy he is. So gentle and easy to handle. We set off towards the river and he was dismayed when it started raining quite heavily so we had to stop and shelter under the trees. He pulled a sad damp face for the photo but soon cheered up when we turned for home and he absolutely loved being cuddled and dried off. love4.gif

Carter and Lorraine
I took Carter, out for the day yesterday picked him up and he was fine in the car, when we got home, I introduced him to my dog, Winnie a small Patterdale female, no problems so off we went for a walk, me with Carter and my wife with Winnie, round spinney forest he was fine, passed other dogs and he didn't bother at all, a real pleasure on the lead too.
My wife liked him, as did my son, back home and let him in the garden, he was fine sniffed about a bit, then laid behind the sofa, in the shade, he did come out of himself and wanted to play, quite funny when Carter is tall and leggy and dog is small.
Carter is a great dog really gentle with nibbles, from your hand he can sit and catch too.
Anyone thinking of homing a dog should meet him he is smashing no trouble at all and deserves a chance.

Here's Carter earlier today. He's definetely the quietest and most placid dog I've ever seen I think, so gentle and calm.

I had the absolute pleasure of walking this beautiful boy today. Having had three stronger dogs to walk beforehand, I thought I would leave Carter to last after hearing how good he was on the lead...I was not disappointed!

He was so polite, gentle and calm. We had a lovely cuddle by the loch and he gave me some greyhound kisses too.

I can't wait for him to find his forever home.

Jenn and I had the pleasure of fostering young Carter over the weekend. From his temperament you would never guess he is so young. He has to be the most relaxed dog I have ever met. This was his first time to our apartment and he wandered, in had a brief look around and then stretched himself out on the rug - no stress at all. He also ended up nose-to-nose with a Cocker Spaniel on one of our walks and he just wagged his tail and walked on.

I'm not sure about Carters background but he doesn't seem to be scared or stressed by anything - he tries to say hello to everyone person he passes love4.gif

Its hard to tell from photos but Carter is smaller than you'd expect - he's much closer to the size of a Whippet than he is a Greyhound.

He's also very affectionate and given the chance he will sleep next to you or on you - he is not built like a lap dog but evidently one has told him that!

Carter will need some training to ensure he behaves around food as given the chance he will grab food off tables/counters - however as long as you are mindful of him and tell him no he will get back to his napping.
