We had to take Brandon out for a walk today because he looked up at us from his cage with such a pleading look we were totally suckered. Our suspicions were correct - Brandon is a lovely dog and a gentle soul. At the start of his walk he pulled a little but responded immediatley to the heel command and stopped! We were very impressed. He is another poor fellow who is badly in need of a good bath and brush and after a cosy bed - preferably beside the fire.

So many needy dogs in the pound today - and it's so cold and damp. Heartbreaking.

Walked Brandon today. He had the potential to be strong on the lead but was as gentle as ever walking beside me. He can sit too when presented with a treat, and loved a scratch under the ears...he'd be a good dog to have around... :)

Didn't walk Brandon myself but spotted him on my rounds with other doggies. He is badly in need of some tlc, could seriously do with a good bath and groom. He has the potential to be a stunner. He seemed to be walking well on his lead and was calm trotting around. Great with the other dogs.

I walked brandon on saturday and he was absolutely no bother at all. He is oblivious to other dogs and just loves to potter along in the grass. I gave him some cuddles but it doesnt seem like he is used to getting many of them as he kinda just looked at me as if to say " Ok this is nice!". This guy is in bad state and really needs a good scrub down..what a handsome guy he would be! a lovely dog..absolutely no trouble at all..

Brandon has slipped far down the Urgent Action Required list. It would be a shame not to give such a great dog a home.

I've spoken to Kathy and myself and my dog will call up to Ashton tomorrow (probably early afternoon). All going well between the two dogs I'm happy to foster Brandon. Elaine

Photos to come soon! He has puppy-like playfulness. He has been given 2 toys to sleep with and he follows me around carrying one or the other of them. He's very comfortable in his bed, I think he likes having his own area which I believe is giving him a sense of security. He has great teeth, he's been great at chewing on the raw hide. Brandon was confident about coming into the house, in sharp contrast to my own dog when we first brought him years ago. The reason for this I feel is that he had my dog showing him around and their were waggy tails aplenty. Brandon has needed very little encouragement to come into the graden and do a "busy boy" (toilets). He loves boiled chicken and is having 3 meals a day to build himself up as he's been sneezing a bit. I have an 8 year old collie and he and young Brandon are getting on surprisingly well. They both took a walk this morning. Out of the 2 dogs, Brandon was better on the lead. Brandon is attentive, if I stop for my Dog (to pick up "busy boys"), Brandon will come back over by my side without being asked. Brandon loves watching whats happening, very interested in kitchen activities, not alarmed by noise. The areas that require work are his grooming, we left him settle in first and he hit the deck when I tried to lift him which to me indicates a history of rough handling. He really isn't used to fetching a ball or playing so will give that a priority as he'd enjoy it.
