Other Comments: Herbie could do whatever he wanted in his last home and was expected to amuse himself too. He was manic and stressy at the initial assessment. He has now been in foster for nearly 3 weeks and is settling nicely and calming down. Two regular walks each day and his confidence and stamina are both improving. He will need a reasonably firm hand to keep him in his place in the pack. However, he is a lovely older gent that is starting to show a cheeky side in foster. His preferred place for sleeping during the day is at your feet, but is happy to sleep downstairs at night.
