Little Pony ... another success story!

Hello people,

After our Toco went home yesterday and then this testimony today ....
What a heart-warming happy happy ending!

This is how we do it !!

Dear ACE volunteers, 

On 1th July Little Pony arrived by plane in Amsterdam. Curious like the other dogs. But we had a click from the first moment. What a charming dog he is. He is curious, not fearing and finds his own way. No problems at all to take him to the car, in a bench, on his own paste, sniffing around. 
Our old 11 year female dog Lola who is a straydog from Syria welcomed him quietly at home. . 
Funny as he was not used to sleep on his own bed, he used me as a cushion for his first hours asleep in the Hague. The first 3 days he gets to know the environment, the forest, the neighbours with their dogs. 

And he is doing so well. No stress, no anxiety, as we let him do and learn at his own pace. 
He eats well, likes the good quality food that will help get his legs and bones strong. All he has to do he does it outside, no diarrhea. He looks happy, and is funny in the way he acts and when he's finding out what he should do with what he sees or is given. 

After a bit of anxiety for 2 days, he is now settled, feels at home, rests in between his walks in order to get acclimatised with all the new impressions he's experiencing.
In 2 days time we will go and train in a playful way in a special dog field (surrounded by gates) to see how he'll do when he can run freely and if he listens to come back. We live near a forest and the beach, it would be nice if 
after some time he can enjoy it by running around .

Enclosed are a few pictures of how he's getting used to his own bed (instead of my bed or the couch), a rest in the garden with our elder dog Lola, and one of him sleeping with his blue Kong (a specially dogproof toy, his best found friend). 

In short, we love this guy, and thank all the volunteers in Spain who helped him to become such a nice character. He has many years to go still in an enjoyable doglife. 

Kind regards,
