Now we have a new boy......Lucas/Lukey. He was one of our Breeders Dogs, who went to Kempsey. Owner left him with De facto and did not return from the UK. She was going to take him the the pound. Pound suggested return to breeder. Breeder paid for her to bring the dog back and gave her some money for him, just because. He was quite beautiful, so our Breeder gave him to someone who shows. She did some showing with him 50% of his Championship in fact. But I am not sure what happened. He is very timid and worried and even scared to walk into the house. Once in he is fine. it is as if he has been told off all the time, for just doing anything. He sniffs at something and you look at him and he cowers, poor boy. Not sure who the cause is. Our Breeder took him back again, he is quite happy with her and the Kennel maid. He now loves Mike and happy with me. Our dogs are good with him. We are going to try and finish his Championship, because he is quite handsome. We need to make him happy and smiley again. he had no timidity as a pup. So that is a plus
So he is ours now to keep. Our breeder has written a contract where we can keep him, forever and use him as a Breeder (as long as checked with her I doubt we will LOL) and she might use him a couple of times. If he gets confident again ( no character fault, but environment fault).
She offered us another Show dog.....A very showy show boy. But he does not need us. So we took Lukey. Lukey slept next to Mike's side of the bed next to Annabelle. I think he will settle in. We will use some Agility and fun, to get him happy again :-)
Luke hates the camera
I know it is blurry, but it is kinda cute........
