Ernie has come into us after being retired from racing, some ex-racers still are yet to settle into the 'retired' mindset but Ernie has well and truly got his pipe and slippers with the race track being a very distant memory.

Ernie is affectionately known as Eeyore, he reminds us so much of the Winnie the pooh character, bless him! He walks really well on the lead, basically glued to your side, he wouldn't say boo to a goose as he is a bit on the shy side but is getting better each day.

He's walked round the fields with all different dogs, he does get particularly excited and his first tail wag happened when he saw little Terrier Nero, Nero on the other hand looked terrified of him - we are sure the friendship will develop... maybe!

We are ideally looking for a quieter home, one perhaps without children as he can be easily startled and doesn't like loud noises, this isn't to say that he isn't good with children purely temperament wise he would suit a more relaxed environment.

We feel that Ernie could live with another dog, one more his size and equal in chilled out temperament, otherwise he would be quite happy on his own not having to share the sofa.

Ernie really is a gentle giant, he hasn't put a paw wrong since being here and we are hoping that it won't be too long before he is saying goodbye to kennels for the last time and a happily ever after!
