    image.jpg image.jpg Here is Theodore when he was brought into the high kill shelter. Then the next one was when he was brought out of the shelter after spending 132,days there. We don't have him yet. We also don't know if he and Tonka will get along. We are waiting for his most recent temperament evaluation Results.

    Thank you! I hope it all works out. He is very sweet. Hi nick name at the shelter was "wiggle butt." They told me he was neutered before a foster or adopter was found because the shelter thought someone would grab him right away.

    Derek,
    No, we have not met him yet. There have been delays due to holidays, Vet clinic hours, veterinary emergencies that the rescue has had to deal with, medical emergencies of volunteer staff. I guess Theo's walker had a severe asthma attack and had to be hospitalized. He might not have been walked for a week. He stayed at the Vet's office for about a week. We were hoping to have him already. We are waiting to hear the final details.

    @nat- this is not to steer u away but just and FYI the crate/ gate/ rotate lifestyle is super easy and always better then the alternative. Just want to give u the FYI. It's easy.

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks, we are going to start out like that. We'll see. I'm still unsure of which crate to get. I've been delaying because I have not been convinced that he is coming yet. However. He could be here by the weekend.

    I am thrilled that Theo is making his way closer to a normal life!! Trusty is waving 'Hi!' from a distance to another Carson shelter survivor.

    And agreed with Steve - crate and rotate works, been there and done that :)

    Hopefully things work out for you. I think I could handle seeing Theodore pictures on a regular basis, he's a photogenic dude.

    He looks super happy in the second photo. Good luck and I hope it all works out.
    Also I wanted to second steve07 on the crate and rotate comment: We have three dogs - to that get along with each other and a third that does not get along with either. Once you get used to it it's pretty easy and also ensures that you spend 1 on 1 time with the dogs.

    He is shorter than Tonka and weighed about 45lbs upon his arrival to the shelter.

    Our grandson said he is little with a giant head that is disproportionate to his body. Lol
