Walker arrived from DPD. He is very nervous but once he got used to being pet in the med room he let us complete his intake. Shy. hw-; hound; 1 yr old; 4/9; stray; 42lbs.
More about me April 19: Trying hard to be a friend to all. Introducing the amazing Mr WALKER, the hound! We love Walker and you will as well. He's a shy guy who does not ask for much and very much prefers to fly below the radar. He's not wanting to be noticed but as handsome as he is, well it's hard not to turn your head and smile as you see his sweet face. We had Walker out for a full 3 hrs during photo time. He surprised us by walking all the way up to the front play yard area and then also back to the kennels. Good boy! He was a bit touch and go but got the job done nonetheless! Walker is very low key and polite but also shy, undersocialized and cautious. He started to show some initiative in walking over to other dogs (he was good with male and female dogs) and or to be near us after we had had him out for a while. He's still very much a work in progress but between his shown desire to slowly be part of the group either with other dogs or humans, we know he has it in him to grow and evolve to become that very special pet he was destined to be. You can be Walker's HERO by asking about him today.
More about me April 26: WALKER is that you coming over to say "Hi?" OMG, it is and we could not be more proud of you. This is the second time we've had Walker out for photo time and he was just the best. Last week, he was still feeling pretty shy and overwhelmed and preferred to hang on the sidelines to catch all the activity. Advance forward one week and this brave hound mix is following us around and wanting more and more to be a participant in the action. He was ready, front and center in his kennel...a little reserved...but up front nonetheless and calmly sat while the leash draped over his neck. He slowly walked out of the busy/noisy kennel area and into the quiet calm of the front exercise yard. He was TERRIFIC! Walker is the sweetest dog and you'll not find a mean bone in his body. He has consistently welcomed all dogs into his world and was even a bit more proactive in seeking them out during his 3 hrs in our play yard. It was easy to give Walker the nickname of "Photo Bomber" as he casually and methodically strolled on over when pictures were being taken. What a joy to see Walker relax and feel more confident. Now, that's a good boy Walker.
More about me May 3: WALKER, I see you smiling! Our hound boy Walker is slowly morphing into a "Happy Hound." We caught Walker smiling during our 3 hour outing. His tail was up. And get this...he even barked at us to get our attention as we exited his play yard to another play yard as if to say, "Hey, let me come along." Walker is calm and polite and has met every dog with grace and style. He's been terrific. He's actively coming over to us and not immediately scampering away as we reach out to pet him. Instead, we are getting a broad grin and an opportunity to give him a slow, measured pet on the sides of his face and under his neck. We are proud of you Walker. Please keep up the hard work.
