Please met Toffee, he is a beautiful 15 weeks old Pomeranian puppy and is our new rescue dog. He is a rescue dog in the sense that his human mum could not look after him anymore, she really had no idea what it meant to look after a breed like this. So she did what could and found him a new home with us. He now has a sister and two brothers, a very large garden and will come to work everyday with all of us. He is a beautiful little dog, but he, even at 15 weeks had got the better of his old owner, even to the point of attacking her, which she really didn’t think was wrong !! We had a two hour journey back home and to start with, I did wonder if we had done the right thing, he tried to attack me three times and cried like a banshee. What he was used to doing, was attacking if he wanted something and if the owner didn’t want him to, he would bite. Well after using the word ‘no’ and some short taps on the nose, he learnt remarkably quickly to stop, even the crying stopped, he curled on my lap and fell asleep. He had never been told no before and so had become top dog at such an early age.
We stopped a few times on the way home, even visited a garden centre, he was as good as gold, lots of people stoked him and he was perfect. Meeting the other dogs was not as bad as I thought, he was soon running about the garden with them, there were a few snarls and barking, but that always happens, while they sort themselves out. He has not growled or bitten since this morning and we have had kisses from him and he is now fast asleep in his box. Tomorrow he will go to work for the first time…..mmm that will be interesting 🙂 I am hoping we have a lovely delightful little dog in the making, its a good start 🙂
I took the photo this afternoon and I think I can see a smile there 🙂
