Update (Jan 2023): Puff T is doing well in her foster home. She is a shadow to her humans, always wanting to lay next to them or follow them through the house. One of her favorite activities is her puzzle toy that is filled with treats. She uses her nose to move different parts of the toy and find treats. She also enjoys playing with other toys, especially if they squeak. Puff’s leash skills have improved drastically. She now walks nicely next to her human. Puff is the perfect companion ready to share new love and affection with her new family.

Introducing Puff T - Welcome to the Thulani family Puff T! Puff came from a loving home where she has lived since she was 6 weeks old. Unfortunately, her owner experienced some medical difficulties and moved to an assisted living home that did not allow dogs. Luckily for Puff, the family found Thulani. Puff is adjusting to her new life in a foster home where we are seeing her personality shine.
Puff is a friendly, social girl who loves her people. Although she is shy at first, once she warms up, Puff loves getting attention and giving gentle kisses. She enjoys the company of her two four legged foster siblings. Puff loves her walks and has made improvements on leash skills. If allowed, she will use her excellent mobility and to play follow the leader and appoint herself as the leader. Puff is a companion who just wants to be close to her family. She is a shadow who follows her person everywhere. Puff’s gentle and sweet demeanor will be a wonderful addition to her new family.
Puff passed a set of evaluation tests before being accepted into 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). This dog remained calm during all of these tests and showed no aggressive tendencies.
What's Next for Puff T: Puff has been checked out by our vet and is ready for her forever home! If you are interested in her, please apply now. Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue (TSGSR) will continue to see that she is well cared for. She will come to your home with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys.
