Available Dogs - Thatcher



Got a minute?  I'm Thatcher and have a got a story to tell!  On second thought, we might need more than a minute.  And a tennis ball. Definitely need a tennis ball...

I was owner surrendered to a shelter. I think they knew I needed some help they couldn't give me. You see, I had a wound on my neck that had been there for a while. It didn't look so bad on the outside, but looks can be deceiving. I ended up having multiple surgeries over many months to clean it up and close it up. I even got to go stylin in some hip glasses for my laser treatments that helped my wound heal. Mom says they make me look cool. I say they make me look kinda goofy.  What do you think?

Mom says I am a very sweet boy except when I meet other dogs on lead. I have been working hard on that and doing really well with my classes. I will need an experienced Forever Family to help me practice but Mom says I am worth every minute.

So that's the short version. I'll tell you the rest while we play ball!
