This is the reason for all the frantic fence and gate building. We have finally taken the plunge and adopted this cute little fella.
Rick is a four year old Labrit (Pyrénéen herd dog) cross who is looking for a new home after being abandoned at a dog refuge. He is absolutely adorable but likes to chase and bark at cars and bicycles. Not many cars or cyclists (apart from ourselves) around here, just the occasional tractor but we need to make our courtyard escape proof.
Thea and Marie Christine, two lovely ladies from the adoption agency, came to check us out today and it appears that we meet their requirements. We collect him on Friday. I can’t wait to give him the loving home that he deserves.
