Thumper's Story...

This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Berlin, New Jersey****Thumper was such an amazing little guy that a shelter volunteer kept him safe in her home for about a week until ResQ could squeeze him in.  Was he worth it?  You bet!  Thumper loves everyone!  He loves men and women equally, and greets visitors with a wag of his little tail.  He is even okay with cats!  Thumper is housebroken and quiet, and doesn't challenge any of the other 10 dogs in his foster home.  He gets excited when he sees a black car drive by, so we think he must still be looking for his master to come get him.  Thumper follows his foster dad everywhere, and gets excited when he sees a leash, or thinks he might get to ride in the car.  Thumper had someone who loved him, and we may never know how he ended up on the euthanasia list at an Arkansas shelter.  He is about 4 years old and weighs 16 pounds - just the perfect lap size!  Thumper is affectionate and minds well, and would do well in just about any home.
