This guy is starting to show some life. He woke up and ran to the door so fast the other morning, I was surprised! His treatment continues at Casselton Vet for the chiropractic adjustment and his laser and acupuncture. These are about every 4-6 weeks for less pain. He takes 1/2 a pill daily and is very smart in getting the pill out of the treat or pocket. He does not play much with other dogs, He's more happy laying on the outskirts of the yard or living room just relaxing. He continues to be at my feet or right next to me in the chair or bed. He still does not like to be kenneled, It's amazing how well he can climb up on the couch or chair when he hears me say "Kennel up!". He loves his treats and will go in his kennel when brought there. He has since found his voice now that we have a third dog in our house. He is learning not to bark at people outside the house and is a little timid of strange men. He is such a loving dog, he would benefit more being in a forever home where he can be the only dog or with laid back quiet dogs like him. He's a bit of a jealous boy when it comes to who gets the love, but isn't mean.
Tama loves his favorite spot as close to my side as possible in my chair, or as he sleeps next to me on bed. He still likes being treated more like a human rather than a dog.
He continues to have an occasional accident but for most part he goes outside. He still prefers a chair or bed over his kennel, but does ok with being carried to kennel and given treats, he appears quiet . When I return, Tama is ready to be held and given loving touch.
He has his morning pills, a pain med and a fish oil to take, does this best with a small piece of cheese. He walks much better on leash than at first. He enjoys the walk as long as not too long.

Tama, is very passive He loves to sit on your lap or close to you. He is very fragile and anxious with kids. He does enjoy being with his foster sister. He loves chew toys ,stuffed toys. He is good at going outside for potty but does not go far and does not like the cold. He is very close to the ground so he gets cold quickly. He rarely barks but whines to get his needs met if he needs help in chair or up to you. He does appear to have pain when reached for or lifted up but when laying still none noted. He is friendly with adults and not as anxious as with children who want to hold or pet.
