What a greeting I received today. He was so pleased to be going out, a little over excited to start but in the nicest possible way, just bouncing around, and totally good natured throughout. We did the woodland walk. Shadow had a little bark at Ed when we saw him but as he came over it was obvious all Shadow wanted was to be friends thumbs.gif We then carried on to the usual walk through the woods and on to the common.
He is a fabulous young dog who just needs some time and training. I did have trouble getting back out to of the kennel though as Shadow is thinner than I am so I couldn't get back out without opening the door wide enough for him to escape which he did! Easily caught and Shadow was back inside thumbs.gif Poor thing isn't used to being in kennels so doesn't want to be left behind. He is a bit of a fruit loop at the moment but I am sure he will settle quickly and is the most friendly, lovely natured dog you could find. I am sure he will be snapped up very quickly. Totally gorgeous love4.gif

What a lovely boy Shadow is, as Ros says. He's in prime kennel location in the middle corner, where everyone passes. He had some spare leads clipped to his kennel and each time I passed by to collect one yesterday, Shadow would come up to me with his tail wagging and his face pressed forwards as if to say 'helloooooo'. Very charming boy, get your homing questionnaires in quick as I don't expect he'll be with us long.

Walked the fantastic Shadow again today. He is very excitable when you first leave the kennel but settles in a few moments. Very loving and thoroughly enjoys his walks. He does need training but will do an amazing 'sit' so I think he will be easily trained. He did get a bit excited when we passed a couple of dogs but although he barks, his tail is wagging and he just seems over excited, there is no malice in his shouting.
Shadow doesn't like to be left and tries to come with you when you leave the kennel, I do hope he is not in there for too much longer love4.gif

Shadow is a great lad. I understand he's an escape expert. The girls in the kennel will assist he loves them and at a wave of their hand he departs in the run then hatch down to allow you to enter he joins you for the lead/harness ceremony no problems just a little excitement. Walks well once he's over his initial excitement. On return to kennels reverse procedure to allow you to exit and ensure Shadow stays in the kennel. On return to the kennel he readily accepted treats but was too busy pre and during walk to bother. A really super dog. Steve

Shadow was very good today and we had a lovely walk. He was not so bouncy today for the first couple of minutes as he has been before so he has settled in to kennel life much better. Out on our walk, Shadow explored everywhere. We passed other walkers and cyclists and Shadow was very good and took no notice, what a good boy.
On our way back I went to my car to get a drink and Shadow leapt inside and sat in the driving seat. He didn't want to get back out - I think he wanted to be taken home!
He then said hello to another walker who had just arrived, Shadow is a really friendly boy.

I have a soft spot for Shepherds, the dog variety obviously, so Shadow was my first walk of the day. He is always so excited to see you with harness and leads and this morning he had to be a little patient as I managed to totally tie the harness in knots! The second attempt went much better and we were soon out and about in the early morning sun. He is a fab boy who I think would be great at scent work - his head is always down on the ground sniffing out the trails of the day. His coat is oh so soft and he loves a cuddle, come on forever home you are missing out!

Shadow is a complete loon around other dogs out on a walk and I felt quite bad I couldn't offer him another dog to play with, our friends at Vigil might help us out with that though thumbs.gif
He's stunning and affectionate, bit green around the gills so the busy walks at Guildford are very exciting for him, but he'll get used to it.

Bit of a blurry pic due to the horrible rain.

Shadow is a complete barking loon when he's excited to go out! I'm told it's a breed thing, so I just give him a shoulder rub whilst agreeing with him "Ok Shadow you tell them all about it lad". He then goes all silly and cuddly, quite the surprise for a someone who has always found Shepherds a bit stand offish. Simon has taught him "back" which you say before going into his kennel and then he walks backwards into his run giving you space to enter. You do then get a full on charge of lovin' once in but I'm a bullbreed girl so I'm more than happy with that thumbs.gif
I reckon Shadow would be an amazing working dog, today he sniffed out a discarded glove below a significant amount of undergrowth and debris! He's soooo bright! Oh and handsome, SUPER handsome!
