Today I visited the Snowdonia animal sanctuary, a place for a number of unwanted and aggressive dogs. I had the opportunity to walk some of these dogs but found a special bond with Marley.
This gorgeous boy had the temperament of a saint, he was extremely independent compared to the other dogs and got quickly attached to people, following us round when we were walking the other dogs.
I spent a good amount of the time I was in there just throwing small rocks into the water and watching him happily chase after them and come back to me every time to wait for another.
For someone with a lack of experience with dogs, these recent experiences with larger dogs have helped me to grow and overcome my anxiety of big dogs.
I’m exciting to going back to see Marley again soon!
