Toffee'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. 23.06.18: Good Morning Lynne,

I wonder if you have any space for TOFFEE a mistreated Mastiff x girl between 1 and 2 yrs. Her assessor has described her as a nice girl who has been mistreated. I took her in the exercise pen yesterday and walked her past other dogs in the stray kennels. No reaction but a waggy tail. She does need work as she is scared of the outside world but is coming on well with her handler. I need to move quickly because she needs out of a pound environment . I will pay her spay costs xx Margaret

REPORT FROM YESTERDAY "I watched her brought out from her kennel past other dogs with no reaction but a wagging tail. We took her to the exercise pen where she pretty much ignored me but showed that she adored her handler with whom she has a special bond. She is a big soft lass somewhere between 1 and 2 years old. A male dog went past the pen and her tail was up but no aggression seen. She has the loveliest smile and has come on well since she has been handled. She will be a wonderful companion for the right owner and I promised her I would do everything I can to get her to rescue as soon as possible. . I son't see a problem in TOFFEE just a beautiful lady who needs to be treated properly"

Toffee is a very special lady. You have to meet her to appreciate just what a soft, gentle, special dog she is. She walked with Louise today. Yes we saw her nerves but we also saw what a friendly, quiet, well balanced dog she is. She walked beautifully on the lead, staying close to Louise's side, and ambled slowly along, taking her time. All she needs is time and love to get over her nerves and she will be an incredibly special companion to the lucky person or family that comes forward to adopt her.

Lots of photos which hopefully show how beautiful she is and also give a little insight into her wonderful personality.

Toffee and I enjoyed a stroll on Friday afternoon - she does like to take her time and that was alright by me thumbs.gif
She is still finding her feet in kennel life - new things and sudden movements still surprise her and make her jump but her beauty and gentleness shine through love4.gif

Toffee has a real wiggle to her walk love4.gif

The yellow cone gave her a fright when it wobbled as she brushed past it ! Reassured by me that all was well she was brave enough to go back and give it a sniff thumbs.gif

Toffee is a very special girl. She is a Mastiff lovers dream.
Life has been rubbish for her so she can be a bit shy but things are now on the up for her and hopefully so is her mood!

We have spent lots of time together today which included a wander down to the busy River Wey where Toffee showed off her many skills, that of:
- walking sooo calmly and gently on the lead
- being comfortable walking near busy traffic
- being totally non reactive when walking close to other on lead dogs
- taking a treat so gently
-being very responsive to me showing how devoted she would be to her forever person

On return to kennels, Toffee met the kennel cat when said cat walked straight over to her! Toffee was interested in being approached so boldly but did not react and was very easily distracted with a treat so good signs there.

Toffee started her day today by appearing to be a bit down in the dumps when we met but ended it with a Mastiff style lean into me and a wagging tail.
