Vic Reeves was traumatised by the transport when he came to us in August. He didn’t know if he could trust us or if we were going to treat him the same way he had always been treated by people – poorly.
We took the time to get to know Vic and used treats to earn his trust. We soon discovered that Vic is an incredibly sweet dog, but he does have low confidence when meeting new people.
He has had a couple of viewings. On days that he doesn’t feel too confident he can be avoidant of people in viewings, however, there have been others where Vic has gone to each person in turn for a tickle and really showed himself off!
Vic can bond with people quickly, there are a few volunteers that he absolutely adores and will run over to instead of heading out to the field to go to the toilet. We know Vic seems shy on the surface, but he has an incredible amount of love to give to a family.
When we first introduced Vic Reeves to some of the dogs at the rescue it was clear that he has been very under socialised. He didn’t know what to do with another dog and just stood there looking very anxious. With the help of some of our best mixers, Vic began to learn how to play and interact with some dogs at the rescue.
