Donny was a bit nervous and overwhelmed in the kennels yesterday but nevertheless, he was gentle and friendly when I greeted him in his kennel. He was so good and patient while I swopped his harness for a smart new one and he seemed worried but not reactive to the other dogs in their kennels as we headed out for a walk. Donny walked really nicely on the lead, and cheered up away from the noise of the kennels. He has a lovely calm, kind nature and is very, very handsome.

Donny seemed much happier yesterday when I took him out for a walk. He walks beautifully on the lead and really is such a calm, gentle and easy dog to be with. We met Perry walking with Sue, by the bridge, and Donny helped Perry navigate the steps up to the bridge which he finds difficult due to his eyesight. Perry seemed happier and more confident with Donny so we continued our walk together and Donny was amazingly relaxed and gentle alongside Perry. Donny is a very special soul.

Oh Donny I've just seen that you have a wonderful ridge that's just as good as my crazy pedigree rescue ridgeback girl's. What a smasher !! And what a gentleman.

I was lucky to take donny for a walk on Friday during my induction, what a lovely boy he is, stunning looking & lovely to walk, a great way to introduce me to the walking family. Looking forward to next time.

Donny is proving how well he gets on with other dogs. He walked with Tia this morning and the two dogs were totally relaxed together. We met lots of dogs on our walk and Donny and Tia greeted them all politely or walked past without taking much notice. At one point we met a pack of 5 dogs all off lead and all the greetings between them and Donny and Tia were lovely and relaxed.
