GSRNC was able to meet Shiloh while he was at the shelter to evaluate his condition. Shiloh T was very well socialized with both people and dogs. While he is fine living with other dogs, he has no need for them, much preferring to be with his person. He does need affection from his person and will put his head down and nuzzle into his person while being petted.
Shiloh does have some understanding of basic training commands (sit, down, stay, come, and shake). It was also observed that in their "test room" that Shiloh always maintained his house-training and waited to go outside to eliminate.
Lastly at the shelter Shiloh was tested with a Cat. At the introduction he briefly sniffed the cat and then walked away. He did not get overly excited or show signs of a prey drive. This was a passing result and shows signs that Shiloh may be workable with cats.
We are still learning more about Shiloh so we will be updating his bio with more details as we learn them.
Shiloh 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.
Shiloh's medical expenses will be covered for the rest of his life by The Thulani Program!
