Meet TILOU – who has spent several months in foster and who is now ready for his forever home. We are not sure exactly what mix this boy is: the vet thought perhaps husky. As he develops and matures we are not at all sure. Is he more likely a Berger X of some sort? His joy of working, training and learning seem to point in that direction.
We rarely add videos to profiles but this one is a ‘must watch’. It is easy not to realise just how significant a video this is. For a dog who is about to have the freedom to run and play in an open field, to be asked to wait until the last, to be knocked by one of his mates as they dash by and still to remain in “wait” is phenomenal and shows a self-control difficult to find in dogs who have had it easy, let alone this young chap who has had the most difficult of starts to his young life.
Over his time in foster, TILOU has continued to grow in stature and become a more confident, lovely dog who is also a bit of a clown and full of zest for life. He has met several different dogs and with good integration he has done well with sterilised males as well as females. He loves it when his natural prey drive is put to good use – so playing hide and seek is a good game, as is foraging for food. He is a huge fan of the Frisbee and brings it back with great efficiency. We feel he would excel at activities like Canicross, Agility or even Flyball now that he has learned to retrieve, where he could use his magnificent energy.
He is clean and quiet in the home, travels well in the car, will walk as far as you let him!, and will be a dedicated companion.
TILOU has come a very long way from the young, underweight dog who had been hit by a car that had left with him a fractured leg and severely dislocated hip, a family that did not want him and an order on him to be euthanised. The day he serendipitously came our way, his luck changed. His first two months in foster were spent confined to crate rest. For the last 4 months he has been building his fitness physically and his maturity through training and development.
We would love to find TILOU a family who understand his needs as a young, active dog, who get joy from working and training a dog, and can give him the sort of life that he so deserves and where he will truly flourish. He is still a young recruit with a good foundation upon which he is building daily.
If you are that person, we would love to hear from you.
TILOU has just moved to his new foster home in 31 (Haute Garonne) and will very soon be available for adoption anywhere in France or farther afield, subject to successful home approval process.
