Hannah, Daaim and Waldo
Waldo was rescued from a high kill shelter in Bosnia and spent a long time in kennels waiting for a forever home of his own. Waldo came to kennels in Kent in October 2018 and soon went to foster with our wonderful foster Mum, Mel. He was wonderful with Mel and her family and finally found his forever family in May 2019.
My husband and I adopted Waldo in May 2019. He was rescued from a kill shelter in Bosnia and boy, are we glad Fetcher Dog rescued him.
Waldo is the most laid back dog I have ever met. He is super friendly to all humans and animals on Earth. Which is great because we have a black cat who can be a bit humpy at times, but waldo just completely ignored him to begin with and now they have learned to share each others beds and sleep in the same room.
When Waldo first came to us he was quietly excited and a little reserved but he learned to come out of his shell.
From day one he refused his cage which we took as a good sign that he was ready to settle with us as he knew our house was peaceful and quiet so he didn't need to hide away. It took Waldo a good couple of months of being constantly called and tempted with treats to cuddle up to us on the sofa but now he jumps on it before our bottoms even touch the cushion!
He's a cheeky boy who loves his three, yes three(!) walks a day. On his walks Waldo likes to sit for a good 10-15minutes on the grass or on the beach just watching the world go by. He sits with a big smile on his face as if to say 'look where I am and how good I've got it'. Or at least that's what I like to think he is thinking!
He goes to Granny's (my mum) house once a week for a play date with Benji (my mum's collie dog). They hit it off from day 3. Day 1 and 2 were a bit funny with Waldo finding his pecking order with Benji but they got there in the end. And now Waldo licks Benji's face as a sign of respect every time he goes to his house. Waldo likes to have dinner at Granny's house because he gets 'Grannys Gravy' which is a special treat.
Dear Waldo has settled really well now and has made lots of human and doggy friends on his walks. His 2 favourite walks are along the beach and in the woods. In the summer he likes to spend a lot of time outside in the garden and in the winter he curls up infront of our open fire or on our sofa.
We now couldn't imagine life without him and cant remember what it was like before we got him.
