Today was my second walk with the lovely Luke. He greeted me softly in the kennels, and sat patiently to be harnessed; he sits and looks at you when he wants a treat. We left kennels without much fuss and headed out for a long walk. He enjoys sniffing and investigating the environment around him; subsequently, he did not really show any interest in passing cyclists or members of the public. He doesn't pull on the lead too strongly, and occasionally even walks very close to me. A lovely little dog and already looking forward to walking him again, unless someone is lucky enough to take him home.

Unfortunately, I did not take any photos/videos but will make sure to take some next time.

This dog is a dream! Gentle from the outset, happy to be harnessed, walks nicely, does not pull and sits and offers his paw so sweetly. An absolute little treasure! I will make sure I take more videos as nothing I say will showcase his qualities better than he can do (battery died so annoyingly couldn't take today!).

Another first for me this weekend, walking Luke. What a handsome boy he is, on coming out of the kennels we had bouncy Luke and Reggie keen for the off, but within 10 minutes they settled lovely together and were two happy boys. It was lovely to see them so happy to be out. Luke is a sensitive soul and does love his little stops for a cuddle and when we stopped for a longer time (for sausages) he had a very happy back wiggle for a nice long time. Easy, handsome, with a little cheeky side is Luke - walking back he did the sweet grin a fair few times licking his lips ..... 'umm do you have a treat for me?'. He didn't get as many as he could have had, but he did get lots of good boys and chin scratches angel13.gif]

My first time walking Luke at the weekend and I was immediately in love! 😍

He was happy and calm greeting me, standing still while I harnessed him for our walk together.

He walked with myself and two of my friends, and was super happy! A little ladies man 😂 frequently checking we were all still there.

He walks quite strongly on the lead but he’s still young! I think it was more that he was keen to get going. He seemed interested in other dogs, people, and bikes - trying to pull to say hello to everyone!

We then stopped for a cuddle by the river bank. Luke has beautiful silky fur and looks a bit like a tiger in the sun! He loved the attention and cuddles, as you can see in the video nothing could distract him from being stroked! He was then bounding around and rolling in the grass around us - or trying to snuggle underneath us 😂

Send in your forms for Luke - he is still so young and all he wants is love and play time !!! 🐶

Love this boy. He is one of the most calm staffs I have ever known. Sometimes he can pull, but yesterday he was walking to heel beautifully, without me even asking for it.
Not fussed by cows and swans, which were all in the river. He really is very special. He's on my foster list, just need the builders to finish!

Luke had a long walk over to Compton with Ammie, this was a 3 mile walk and whilst we found Ammie may not be that keen on him, Luke didn't find this a problem as he was happy and relaxed all the time walking either behind, in front or with safe distance apart. It was only once we got to the pub garden that we found a pub seemed new to him; he tested the chair, the table etc and just wasn't sure what to do, we then sat in separate areas and clam ensued again with Luke understanding the floor is for dogs. With time and exposure Luke is sure to find these things easier and even in the limited time we saw it was easy to help him understand, he went back to relaxed and taking it all in, myself and my other half eat our food (one at a time)

Just playing it cool Linda ....
He was fine with one us leaving the area to go into the pub and then back out again. The walking distance was fine (around 6miles) and revelled in it, at the dog gate he waited easily and even back in the kennels it was happy smiles for treats. It is easy to forget this boy is so young when he so calm and happy, he just needs a loving family to help him on the way to experiencing the new things that he has missed out on and the pub garden could easily have been a first (but not the last).

This boy is rock steady. He is a complete joy and I just cannot understand why he hasn't been snapped up.

Luke is such a sweetheart of a dog, he was so good today, easy to harness and take out, and walked really nicely. We had a walk and a bit of a run, he was good at Canicrossing and ran in a nice straight line. He is very responsive and loves a cuddle. I also think he is very handsome and has such a lovely soft velvety coat. We met two well behaved off lead dogs and he walked past with hardly a glance. angel13.gif]

We had the pleasure of walking Luke recently. After the initially excitement he settled in well with no pulling. He is such a nice dog. Had an off lead dog approach him and he was no problem. He loves his treats and cuddles. Some one has to snap him up soon. He would make a delightful pet and I think he would be really easy to train as he is food orientated. thumbs.gif
