Hector has finally worked out stairs! He hasn't been at all interested up to now, even though our 3 go up and down regularly. But yesterday we found him halfway up with all 4 legs spread eagled like Bambi on ice!! He slid down backwards (!!!) and then tried again and managed to go up in a very ungainly fashion on his third attempt. He was too scared to come down though and Paul and I had to push and pull using his lead and a treat and then he managed it. He's now a regular visitor upstairs and slowly getting quicker and better at it. He quickly found the bed but seems happier to lie on a bed on the floor. Such a lovely boy - and still looking for his forever home :) xx

Hector's still with us but still looking for his forever home. He's very good on the lead, gets on well with other dogs (although has to have a good sniff at small ones as he still finds it hard to believe something small can actually be a dog!), absolutely loves fuss, and can be left for quite a long time with no problem though he is with our dogs then. Please don't overlook this lovely boy xx

Love Hector to bits! Great to see him at Notcutts yesterday. He's such a gentle soul and the way he looks at you. Had to stop wife from stealing him to come and live with Reggie. I so hope someone gives him a warm and loving home very soon. x

We were back at Notcutts today and Hector was such a good boy. He took all the fuss he could get and won a few hearts. I'm hoping that someone whose heart has been won over will want to take him home with them and give him the forever home he deserves (not a forever sofa as he doesn't seem interested in that!) xx

We're "on duty" on Sunday at 2pm at Notcutts with Bert and Skip so we'll see you then. We're bringing Skip to the kennels later today so we'll introduce the 2 of you so you know each other for Sunday. x

Hector came with Snip and Rigsby to the roadshow at Notcutts this afternoon and did really well. He loved all the fuss and then had a nice lie down! If anyone would like to meet him, he'll be back at Notcutts tomorrow from 4-6 and on Sunday from 1.30-4pm.

Hector is back being fostered with us after his holiday while I was away. He settled straight back in and has improved on a couple of things while he's been away. He'd finished his tea tonight and was about to dive in to Snip's bowl as she was still eating but immediately moved away when I told him to leave it. What a good boy! He can also now jump into and out of the car which is a relief - he's a big boy and I'd had to lift his front half then back half in to the car a week ago! I'm sure the neighbours are disappointed to not have that comedy show any more :) More updates will be on their way but get in touch if you'd like to meet this lovely boy xx

The handsome Hector has had a lovely weeks holiday at our house. He is a dream on the lead, loves a fuss and neck scratch, has played with ALL the toys, chucking them about the garden and playing fetch. He has really enjoyed the company of my big softy Sully but my cheeky Tinker is starting to annoy him when he's trying to sleep now by treading all over him!? so he's looking for a forever home where he can get some peace in a bed of his own. Very affectionate boy, keen to learn. He even jumped straight in the van when we went for an outing and travelled well. Good luck Hector. X

So we've got the lovely Hector with us for a few days. He was a bit anxious yesterday and not sure what was going on for the first few hours but settled by the evening and has been very happy since. He absolutely LOVES his fuss and being scratched under his chin is obviously ecstasy for him! He loves playing with toys too. He's been really good out on walks and he and our 3 greys have got on fine with no problems eating or being next to each other so he doesn't need to be an only dog. He has sleep startle so if there are children in the house, they'd need to understand not to touch him if he's asleep but apart from that, he would be a great addition to any house. And he's still only 7 and gorgeous so please don't overlook him! Xx

Oh no. Poor Hector. If you're still in kennels on Sunday I'll say hello and maybe see you on the morning walk. 8 is still young enough for you to settle into a new family and have years and years of happy times with them. x

Hector ran 153 races, he'll need time to realise he's got another career as a lounge hound. Hope he finds his forever sofa very soon :( xx

I am just saddened to read this, I have a soft spot for this beautiful boy, he should not have to find himself back in kennels at his age, if this is through no fault of his own then hopefully somebody will give him the home he deserves, good luck Hector xxxx

Hector has sadly been returned to Daybreaks due to an incident which was not his fault. His owner is very upset but we understand and support her reason for return. He has been in a home since the end of December.

Hector is extremely affectionate, good with other breeds (large and small), walks well on the lead and is clean in the house and can be left.

Since being returned Hector is visibly depressed and it is breaking our hearts. If you think you could offer him a home or could even foster him, please give us a call.

I went to see Hector this morning as his new mom wanted to take him to be weighed at vets and he was refusing to get in car... We went through a few techniques, but when he weighs 39kg.....its not as easy as others we deal with. Lol. X

Lena and Peggy met the handsome Hector in the park this afternoon. What a lovely big fella he is. Lena retired to the car but Peggy had a walk round the park with him and his new mum. It was lovely to meet them both and it sounds like he’s doing well in his new home. Definitely a Happy New Year for Hector xx

Oh my word Hector. You are such a handsome gentle boy. I love you so very much, even though I struggled to get you in the car to go to the vets. Never mind some of us older people remembering Hectors House! have said you are Hector the size of a house. So happy for you sweetie, you really are such a very gentle giant. Just in time for your Christmas forever. Xx

If finances would have allowed I would have snapped this boy up and gone to three, just love his face and the larger greys. Prospective owners do not be put of by the larger ones they can squeeze into the smallest positions

Totally agree I think this boy is stunning and even more so that the daily diary said he was 39kg so must be huge which makes me want him more but I know my hubby would definetly notice especially after our youngest cat has just treated us to an £720 vet bill for somehow managing to slice the end of her tail off!

Could not agree more with the last statement. I had Jed after 120 races and he has been so chilled. Jed walked into the house for the first time, saw his new bed and looked at me as if to say “that will do nicely thank you”

Oh my goodness...you are gorgeous & I love the name. Welcome Hector. My Mel was 7.5 when he retired. I wish I could have you. I will pray you dont have to wait toooo long for a lovely snugly sofa. Come on people......dont overlook the older residents. They are usually so chilled & have even more love to give, if thats possible, because they so badly want a home to call their own. My Mel settled in straight away as though he just knew what was required. You have such a kind face Hector.....it would be impossible not to fall for you on meeting I am sure!!!
