Sigmund T.: Why Are You With Us?
Sigmund T. just came into the Thulani Program, capping a remarkable first quarter of the year. If present trends continue, it appears that the Thulani Program will expand by 30%-60% over last year in terms of the number of dogs helped. We are sad that there are so many Thulani-type dogs in need, but we are glad that we are in a position to help them.
Sigmund T. is a bit of an anomaly compared to most Thulani dogs, for the following reasons:
1. Although picked up as a stray, he has been well cared for
2. He had been neutered
3. He had obedience training
4. He is a loving, gentle dog
5. He had been microchipped
Yet when contacted, his owners did not come to reclaim him. All I can say is that their loss is our gain.
Sigmund T. is a happy, loving guy who is at ease with people and dogs. He may even be good with cats.
He is house trained, crate trained, loves to go for short walks, loves to ride in cars, and loves to be with his people. And he is very handsome.
We already have people asking to be allowed to provide him with a forever foster home.
So although the reasons for Sigmund being with us may never be known, what we do know is that the rest of his life will be as good as we can make it.
