Buddie'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. 06.02.17: Very young SBT neutered male. A lovely natured chap with a typical Staffie love of people. Buddie has settled well at our emergency boarding. Seems fine around other dogs - no signs of aggression. Buddie was handed in as a 'stray' by his owners, who were quickly found out when his microchip was scanned. They refused to take him back when challenged, on the grounds that he had chewed a shoe! Owner threatened to throw him out onto the streets if he was returned home, so to ensure his safety council officials brought him in to the pound. S&S Ax

Buddie is a lovely little proper Staffie. He is a teeny bit hand shy and any fast moves scare him but he's bright and affectionate so will learn not to be nervous quickly.
He has lots of strings to his bow and is incredibly gentle. A very easy, calm walk apart from when he sees a dog to say hello to, his little heart broke when we went in a different direction to Tansy! Seems very fond of other dogs love4.gif

Johan took some piccies....

Took out Buddie today. I hadn't meet him before but that didn't bother him. After a loving greeting he was easily hasnessed and off we went, both of us doing our best to ignore the other dogs. We were out for around an hour and he was beautifully behaved. We had a couple of quiet moments which reinforced my initial thoughts that here was a lovely little fella who deserves a second start and a lotta of love (all of which would be returned twice over).

I got the chance to take Buddie out for a walk today. We'd met before for his photo session but its the first time I've walked him. He was very easy going to walk, and I could see he loves attention and care. I couldn't capture it properly in a photo, but he did this cute thing where when he was sitting for a treat, he'd lift his paw to beg for it. Here's some more pics:

I really enjoyed my walk with Buddie today . He is a little shy on first meeting but very soon realised all was well and off we went for a lovely relaxed walk. Buddy was interested in everything around him and we saw some ducks sitting on the bank which were very exciting for Buddy to see but he didn't attempt to chase or lunge towards them , just very alert and interested.
He is super cute .... gorgeous face .

Lovely young boy

We met Bentley out with his walker and Buddie seemed very keen to say hello. Bentley wasn't too fussed though ! Buddie seems like he would love to meet other dogs and socialise!

Yesterday I was told the dog I requested to walk had been on a squilion walks this week, so could I walk Buddie instead. No problem, another new friend to make!
However, when I said yes I certainly did not expect to fall in love with this wonderful boy as head over heels as I did!
Buddie is a very very gentle dog. Politely let me into his kennel and patiently waited like an angel while I faffed around with his harness (these contraptions are still new to me, sorry buddie!)
Buddie strikes me as a bit unsure of himself, flitting between excitement and wonderment at all of there is to see and do outdoors one minute and then slinking back into tentativeness the next. For example, I took him up a ridge bit into the open field so he could be out in a wider space and feel the air in his lungs. He was a bit unsure of making his way through the longer twiggy bits of dry grass to get there bless him. I flattened the grass down for him and he followed my wellies into the field. Next thing you know he was sniffing about happily and jumping for joy not a care in the world.
I knelt down to give him a stroke at one point, and honestly this boy gently lifted his two paws on to my shoulders gently one at a time, and just rested his head close to mine on my shoulder and held it there. A proper cuddle. Never seen or felt anything like it ♡

God bless this lovely boy. He's not had the best start in life and deserves so much more. He already has great skills; other than amazing cuddles he can also do paw, sit, and didn't even bat an eyelid when 2 different dogs had a go at him today, just walked on by. We all hope that we don't have to see the same dog again next week, but if I do, I look forward to more cuddles and working on his confidence just that little bit more.
He is a smashing boy after all!
