Everyone, please say hello to the handsome Clifford
As soon as we got Clifford out of his Kennel today, the first thing he needed to do was go to the loo, a lot! Well done Clifford, this bodes very well on the 'house trained' front as clearly he'd been holding it in all day! Anyway, after relieving himself, it was time to get to know him and what a gorgeous, happy and very clever boy ( hopefully a little video to be uploaded later) Clifford is!
Clifford certainly knows his 'sit'
'paw?' easy peasy
'down' come on, give me a real test
'OK then Clifford, can you roll over?' Maybe.............
No-one needs to teach this old dog any new tricks!!
There was definitely no maybe in the fact he was very gentle when taking treats
Clifford also LOVED the ball, especially when he found out it was squeaky!
But one of the most amusing things with Clifford, when you have something he wants, be it a treat or a toy, he certainly lets you know he wants it, it really made me smile when he barked at me to tell me to give him whatever it was I had that he wanted!
Clifford is a very handsome, very gentle and very playful boy and I'm sure whoever he ends up with is going to absolutely adore him and have lots of fun!
Clifford will be available for re-homing on the 11th October. If you would like more information on him please phone the Dogs' Home: 029 2071 1243 or visit Cardiff Dogs' Home, Westpoint Industrial Estate, Penarth Road, open 7 days a week, 10.30 - 4pm. Mon/Thurs till 6pm

Good Afternoon, Clifford here, took a chap for a walk earlier, name of Geoff, and he told me that Clifford was his Dad's name, we had a chat about the rugby and footie - C'mon Cymru! and enjoyed a nice walk along the river bank. He said that he is a runner, so I stretched my legs and off we went, he's getting on a bit, just like me, but there's life in the old dog yet, and I'm not too bad either..
I'd like to find my new family soon, best wishes to my fellow temporary residents, and the wonderful staff and friends.

I went to see Clifford on Sunday but the chap said he'd had a couple of fainting spells & they were going to get the vet to look him over. Does anyone know what the outcome was? Poor chap, looks so lovely in his kennel.
Poor old Clifford has been a little poorly, and after his fainting spells, our lovely Pilgrim Pete agreed to give him some home respite, so he could be closely monitored.
Clifford came back to CDH this morning, no more fainting spells, but Pete advised our vet of some slightly worrying episodes, and as a result we have booked him in for chest xrays, full bloods, and an ECG. Clifford was taken to Summerhills this evening, and will have having his procedures tomorrow, so please keep him in your prayers. x
