Please welcome Daniella T to the Thulani Program. Daniella was picked up as a stray by Monterey Co Animal Services, and we were contacted both by the very caring staff at the shelter, and by Carie Broeker of Peace of Mind Dog Rescue. It is terrific that lovely Daniella had many strong advocates before she even encountered us. She is about 12 years old and has all the ‘Shepherd Moves’, a true credit to the breed. She is friendly but aloof, is curious aboout the world around her, loves to go for walks (although she is a bit stiff), and is great with other dogs. She passed her eval without a hitch.
Daniella has a number of minor and major medical issues, but still has some quality life ahead of her, and she is a fighter. Her most challenging issue is that she has a huge, necrotic mammary tumor. We have not yet biopsied it, but it looks scary.
