Foster Mom update July 27th

Happy, cuddly boy Nero has continued to settle in well, to the point that my hound is besotted by him (and so am I!). I’m pleased to report that he is comfortable on lead even around noisy trucks, strange people, dogs and even cats (mostly). At the dog park, he has met dogs of all sizes and types with no problems. And he’s pretty good in the house - no barking and only a little chewing of his dog bed. He is highly food motivated, so I do have to keep it put away, but that hasn’t been a problem.

Nero would love a forever home with either a garden or access to a secure field so he can run and chase the ball most days. He also needs a strict toilet schedule no longer than 3-4 hours during the day, though at night he easily goes 10 pm-7 am without any issues. He just needs to go more when he’s awake, and he hasn’t learned to tell me when he needs to go out. He does his business happily outside when given a chance, and I’d imagine he’ll get the hang of letting me know since it’s only been a couple of weeks so far.

Nero has no problem having his feet handled and is gentle about taking treats. He doesn’t jump on people, but he does want to be cuddled! Nero makes sure no one is ever lonely when he’s around Image removed.

Nero is in foster in London
