After nearly a year of trying to find them an adoptive home together, the perfect home did present itself for the older of the two... Scott T. The Thulani Team is committed to all of the dogs they rescue so waiting to find the right home is never a concern... but particularly for Scott we wanted him to find him an adoptive home while he still had plenty of time left to enjoy the love and warmth of a committed home.
Scott was placed without Binola and he is doing wonderfully. His new home has reported back that... "He (Scott) has a delightful personality and is fitting in perfectly". Scott has learned to look to the whole family for companionship which includes "fitting in" with Jake who is a senior GSD who believes he is still the alpha.
We are happy to report that Binola is also blossoming since Scott's adoption. She is still looking for an adoptive home but like Scott she has broadened her circle of companions. She has now become mostly an indoor dog and has more interaction with her foster Mom. She readily seeks out petting, and her tail is wagging most of the time. Occasionally, she gives kisses. She's house broken and remains well behaved during periods of the day when her foster Mom is at work.
One area she still needs some reminding is at feeding time. She has learned to be patient, sit, and wait for the food bowl to be put down at mealtime, but she still needs a reminder now and again. She also can take treats nicely-- but she still needs a reminder to settle first. Without the reminder she can be quite grabby so at least as this stage of her training it would probably be best that she is fed and given treats by adults.
Binola has also become a guard dog. It seems that she now has a sense of property ownership and when there are strangers that approach she will alarm bark. When guests have come to the home however she converts back to her friendly behavior and will ran up to greet them.
Most all of Binola's traits now seem to be more closely aligned with typical GSD behavior.
She still needs an adoptive home however and we are hoping that you might find a place in your home and heart for her.
As part of the GSRNC Thulani Program Binola is safe and resides in a Thulani Foster home where she receives lots of the normal comforts of home. The Thulani Program will also see that she receives updated vaccinations and other medical care necessary to their well being. In addition, The Thulani Program searching for her next adoptive home that will care for her for the rest of her life. She will also come with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys.
Binola's medical expenses will be covered for the rest of her life by The Thulani Program!
