I met and walked Luke for the first time this weekend and will defintely be requesting to walk him again. He is surprisingly small and slender for a staffie but his personality is 100% staffie.

We went walking with Jenn and patterdale terrier Scruffy - at first Luke was interested in scruffy, he didnt bark at all but he would regularly stop and check that scruffy was keeping up. He seemed very keen to meet him and didnt show any signs of aggression. After 10 minutes or so he was happily walking along and not paying Scruffy any mind.

Despite the heat Luke absolutely loves to run, we did some short runs and then sat waiting for Jenn and Scruffy to catch up - as soon as I sat down he jumped straight into my lap - hes a very affectionate little dude.

After our walk I took Luke into the paddock so he could run off the lead but instead he chose to sit in the shade with me - he definitely adores people!

I took Little Luke out for another walk/run this weekend - and once again he was very easy to walk, very affectionate and didn't pull on the lead. We took a quieter route this time so I could have Luke on a longer lead which was a bit easier for running - Luke absolutely loves to run. Every time we slowed back down to walking pace Luke would turn around and come straight over for a cuddle.

We passed a number of dogs (all on leads) and Luke was very wary of some of them but then completely uninterested in others. Back in his kennel he jumped straight into my lap for a scratch and was very sad when I left - it's always sad leaving dogs like Luke who so obviously love human company. I hope he finds his home soon.

I had the pleasure of walking Luke again today. He is such a lovely dog. He takes treats gently and is very responsive on the lead, waiting before crossing the road and standing over to one side to let other dogs pass.

My first walk with Luke today, he was so well behaved. He was gentle and so easy to harness, he didn’t pull and he was so friendly and responsive. He’s a really handsome boy with a lovely sheen on his coat. He passed two dogs very well, he didn’t really pay too much attention to them. We ran for a bit in the shade and he has quite a turn of speed, another one who would love to do more canicrossing I think. What was nice about Luke was the way he listened and even after we ran quite quickly, he didn’t pull afterwards and settled back to a walk. He dipped his toes in the water but was slightly nervous and didn’t want to go in too far. He was fine with all the people we passed, just ignoring them generally.

Gail and Derek were open to who they offered a home to, they were just looking for a special connection. It was quite obvious to everyone that Luke was their dog, there was an immediate special connection, I love that!
