What a fantastic, friendly boy. King walked with Louise today and he walked nicely along on the lead, through the woodland and when Louise sat down with him in the grass, he posed nicely for the camera and then gave her a thorough face wash, twice! Must have missed a bit the first time. 0002.gif]

My first walk with King today and what an absolute pleasure. Such a friendly boy. Keen to be off out on his walk - complete with his toy! King walks really nicely and calmly with no pulling. We saw a deer while we were out- the same one twice, but King didn't react in anyway. A very laid back boy out and about despite it pouring with rain. He loves his treats and cuddles. Lovely boy love4.gif xx

Complete with prized toy!

What a smashing dog! I took King out today and thought he was very large and very strong so was very surprised at how calm he was and he walked like a real Gent. Absolute sweetheart. Very obedient and friendly. He paid no attention to other dogs we met. He loved a calm paddle in the stream with me, no excitement here even, like many of the dogs.

I walked King on Saturday, and yes, despite his quite tough looking appearance, he is a very sweet chap! He carried his beloved football around with him, and we even managed a bit of a lead-length kick around!

I do love King, he has a lot of character. He was shouting at me to take him out this morning but as soon as we got to the gate and he saw it was raining he tried to go back in. I told him we WERE going for a walk so we headed out, he did his wee and then tried to go back in again. Bless him he was decidedly unimpressed with walking in the rain. For the first half of the walk he lagged behind giving me looks which said 'you can't be serious!' As soon as we started heading back he was out in front, on a mission to back out of the rain. He does have a slightly tough look about him but I can confer with others that he is in fact, a big softie.

It is testament to kings wonderful nature why he was chosen to help me introduce a new volunteer to walking our kennel dogs today. He was quite literally perfect - pulled a little to start but he was just happy to be out and about. We went for a lovely walk then had some off lead time in the paddock. He was goading me to try and take his ball - when I tried to get it, he ran off with it, cheeky boy. However, he happily swapped it for a treat. He may not have the sweetest of looks (he is handsome though), but he has the sweetest nature. Lovely boy - can’t fault him. Xx.

I took King for a walk for the first time this afternoon, what a wonderfully friendly boy He is. Despite not knowing me he gave me such a friendly greeting. He was excited to be going out and was a bit strong to start with but soon settled down and walked at a good pace, stopping now and again for a good sniff at the new smells. King was no trouble getting in and out the kennel block, he didn't react to other dogs barking. This boy has such a lovely nature. love4.gif

Whilst dropping Stella back of at kennels on Monday evening I couldn't resist getting to know King a bit more, Ive had my eye on him for a little while now and there is something about him that draws me in.. so the lovely Debbie assisted me in a short parallel walk with him and Arnold and I cant tell you how well he did I felt that comfortable around him that we made our way to the paddock woo.gif] :goodjob.gif: he was soooo sooo good after the initial interest wore off they were both very relaxed and calm around each other.. If he isn't snapped up soon id love to have him come and stay when the time is right thumbs.gif
