At the Fresno shelter Sanders was given a basic evaluation and was observed to limp a bit on his left rear leg. Without doing allot of testing it was thought that Sanders may have neurological damage to this leg but it is still under investigation. As can be seen in the video link below Sanders does not seem to let this hold him back much.

Sanders is extremely sweet and seems to enjoy being around other dogs. As can be seen in his pictures below he has a very relaxed and open posture when he was observed around unfamiliar but similar sized dogs (1) just off his property and (2) behind him at the shelter.
He was also observed sharing food out the same food bowl with another dog at the shelter without any commotion. That is being friendly and accepting!
We are still learning more about Sanders so we will be updating his bio with more details as we learn them.
Sanders has been accepted into the GSRNC Thulani Program and is headed to a Thulani Foster home where he will receive lots of the normal comforts of home as he settle in. The Thulani Program will also see that he receives updated vaccinations and other medical care necessary to his well being. In addition, The Thulani Program is starting a search for his next adoptive home that will care for him for the rest of his life. He will also come with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys.
Sanders' medical expenses will be covered for the rest of his life by The Thulani Program!
