Meet Scampi

We met Scampi and decided he was ours 😀 He was a six month old bundle of nerves on the friday, by sunday he was like a different dog – the rescue centre had worked wonders with him. It was going to be at least three weeks – and lots of visits from us – before we could bring him home, they wanted to spend more time working with him. But each time we visited, his confidence had grown and two weeks later he was home with us!

I usually link photos to a larger image, but this one is from Scampi’s info page at Teckels Animal Sanctuaries so I’ve linked it to their website

The home check was the one thing I worried about – what would happen when he spotted the chickens? The manager of the rescue centre had spent a lot of time with him, so she was the person to bring him round. There was lots of interest from him (while the girls sped off towards the other end of the run!) and while he stood up and leant on the fence, he didn’t bark, growl or try to attack. We were shown what to do if he does get carried away, but the manager was happy that he’d be OK. Scampi is happy too, his chicken training involves treats and a squeaky toy 😀

We’ve taken lots of photos but the little man doesn’t sit still for long, most are blurry action shots! Between us, we’ve managed just one clear picture 😀

      He’s settled in really well, I can’t believe he’s the same dog we met a few weeks ago!

    Well, hello Scampi! I’m sure he’ll soon get used to hens – our two terriers did and now they can even be trusted to be all loose in the garden together (although we generally avoid it, just in case!)

      He’s getting there, slowly! He tries to scare them away, if they’re around 6′ away from the fence, he relaxes. He had a bit of shock when one of them marched over, made herself as tall as possible and told him off 😀
