This little guys foster Daddy didn't realise he had been called Hugo and started calling him Ned. So Ned has kind of stuck! It really suits him though.
So, we've been fostering Ned for just over a week now and he has been no trouble at all! He was pretty excitable when we first got him home but he quickly calmed down. He has an absolutely gorgeous, playful, happy and friendly nature. In fact, he's been a blessing for our Bella (DID doggie) who is a bit of a princess, but now we find she's copying Ned and being so much more bouncy and friendly.
Bella has tried to play with Ned a couple of times but he hasn't really seemed to respond - we feel this is a bit of a trust issue for him. So in time we're sure he'll get a little bit of confidence and know that she's not trying to harm him.
Ned loves getting a rubbie and sometimes I feel like he doesn't really know how to deal with it - he almost ends up upside down on your lap with the happiness of human contact! So from that I'm of the impression he was an outdoor dog maybe? Also, quite often he'll jump off the couch and lay down on the wooden floors - perhaps he gets too warm. Or else he's used to sleeping on something a bit more solid than the couch or his cosy bed.
Out walking, Ned often starts off by pulling a little bit on the lead, but he responds to being brought back and walking alongside you with the lead limp. He loves sniffys in the park and he's not bothered by other dogs at all.
Ned is fully house trained and knows how to sit for foodies. He's a jumper though!!! So you would need to have reasonable sized fences if you have a garden for him to play in.
Typically of a doggie Ned loves treats and when cooking is great for sitting by your side waiting for some spillage!
Ned has added so much more love and happiness to our home. We're not sure how he is with kids as we don't have kids in our home but we think he would suit both a busy environment to get involved in or even a more quite relaxed home for him to snooze in. Whoever ends up adopting this little guy will be very very lucky to have him.
