Lenny arrived with us from Romania last July and it's safe to say he's turned our lives upside down, in a crazy and beautiful way!
It's hard to prepare yourself for life with a puppy, and despite reading a mountain of books before he arrived, Lenny in reality was so much more than we expected. More work, yet so much more joy!
A rescue puppy (like any puppy) comes with its own unique personality traits, and Lenny was no different. At first he was nervous and needed coaxing into everyday habits such as walking and travelling by car. Patience, love and an endless supply of treats soon overcame these barriers. We've had many a sleepless night (much like having a newborn) but today Lenny is a much more confident dog.
Lenny is a cheeky chappy: he loves chicken treats, chewing his bone, chasing squirrels & cats, playing in the park with other doggies, getting muddy and playing hide and seek! At the end of the day he likes nothing more than jumping up on the sofa with us for a nice relaxing cuddle.
We would suggest working with a trainer during the first few months and expect to lose some household items: socks, slippers - even a subwoofer have been popular with Lenny!
All that said, we absolutely adore Lenny and cannot imagine life without him. We may have lost a few possessions but our life is so much richer for it.
