Kevin was a beautiful dog.
He was a mess of bad breeding. Looked fabulous, but really really nervous.
eg. would spook at seeing a magazine on the sofa, would leg it if people came toward him, he'd be terrified of shiny things. You could use a saucepan as a stair gate, as he wouldnt walk past it too fearful.
Only when he was being handled by myself, did the confident dog come out. The trust that dog showed in me was so poignant. Sometimes its these difficult dogs where you work seriously hard to help them overcome their troubles, that you get this special bond.
Dumb as two short planks, clumsy as all hell. he was adorable. Slightly blind as it turned out, but adorable.
