Hi there, I’m Roley! I’m a friendly, easygoing guy who was lucky enough to find my way to an amazing foster home, where I’m learning all about the good life. And it’s safe to say that when it comes to creature comforts, I’m a natural!
Some notes from Roley’s foster family
Roley has been pretty amazing! We think Roley will find his new home very easily as he clearly loves his new world and is very keen to go on outings. He is a very confident smart dog, learns quickly, is affectionate and eager to please.
Roley is a quick learner – it didn’t take him long to learn our routines, he’s had no toileting accidents in the house, and he quickly picked up on the training we’ve done with him, such as learning to stay out of the kitchen. He is very alert, watches everything and is very interested and curious about all the sounds and happenings in and out of the apartment. He’s shown very little distress at all in the fitting in process.
He is excellent at taking his medication and eye drops/cream. He loves his food and so chicken (or other treats) work well for training. We slow down his feeding by serving his meals in two portions. He enjoys a good brush and loves his lickimat with peanut butter or chicken as a de-stress device. He is easily settled by music or enrichment toys (squeaky snake, toilet roll with treat)
Loves his squeaky snake, loves most chewies (dried pig’s ears etc), boxes with treats. He’s also a good sleeper who loves his bed and has shown no signs of sleep startle.
Roley loves meeting people and is overall very affectionate. He’s got some greyhound walking buddies whose company he enjoys. He generally walks well on the lead, although doesn’t always want to leave his favourite places – he especially loves water views!
He’s working on greeting other dogs, but is improving in his reactions to other medium and large dogs. He responds to reassuring talk (good boy Roley) and some basic commands.
Roley can be a bit of a velcro dog and is still learning to be alone. He is an early riser in the mornings and can be excited by/reactive to some little fluffy things.
