About Butch T
Adoption Fee: $...no adoption fee, medical coverage provided for life
Welcome to Thulani Butch T! Butch was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Southern California due to the owner’s medical issues. After an exciting plane flight, Butch is settling in at Thulani Central. Butch is a friendly boy who loves human interaction. He loves pets, cuddles, giving gentle kisses, and just being with people. He does well with other dogs, but prefers when they are not in his face. When confronted by other dogs, he calmly walks away. He would do well with another dog as long as they respect his personal bubble. He ignored the cat at his foster home, so could likely coexist with another cat. Butch pulls a little bit on a leash, but with training could improve quickly. There is just so much to sniff and explore! He has some stiffness in his hind legs that comes up occasionally, but he still can get in and out of a car without assistance. He loves his toys, and carries them around the house constantly. When he is tired, Butch enjoys relaxing naps on the couch. Butch is an incredible dog who deserves a family to love him forever.
Butch T Summary:
- Male, 12 yrs old, 93 lbs, current on shots
- Good with adults, kids, dogs, cats, and travel in the car
Butch passed a set of evaluation tests before being accepted into the TSGSR. The tests are not intended to assess how smart the dog is but are important for TSGSR to determine if the dog is expected to be safe in a family home. The tested behaviors check to see if the dog will guard or protect food or toys from people, will tolerate handling all over its body (including ears, nose, lips to check teeth, lifting paws, belly, back, and gently pulling the tail). He remained calm during all of these tests and showed no aggressive tendencies.
What's Next for Butch T:
Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue (TSGSR) will continue to see that Butch is well cared for. Butch will be checked out by our vets and will be ready for adoption soon. TSGSR is beginning a search for an adoptive home that will care for him for the rest of his life, so please let us know if you are interested. He will come to his new home with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys.
