Libby is the family dog and Weald team mascot. She is a rescue pup, having been found abandoned and tied to a gate.
She has four beds dotted around the house and workshop and loves to be involved in whatever’s going on. You’ll find her in some of the videos and pictures around this site.
Libby has a friendly and playful nature and loves meeting people. She does agility classes for fun, racing over the jumps and up and down ramps. The tunnel can be problematic as she often stops to see what’s on top of it rather than go through it…
