“Three years ago, I visited the local Animal Rescue Centre (RSPCA) to donate some blankets for the animals. during a conversation with the counter staff, they remembered my add the shop Industry and therefore the fact i used to be a Dog Handler.

The manager asked me if i might have an interest in adopting a really special dog as he had been one among the worst neglect cases the centre had ever seen. At that point , i discussed I had barely lost my beloved dog and wasn't ready for an additional dog just yet.”

“Then the manager brought out a photograph of ‘Tim’. My heart broke for this poor emancipated dog, in a moment I knew he was mine. Well that was one among the luckiest days of my life. Tim is now my ally , devoted playmate to my 2 grandchildren and friend to everyone who walks through my gate.”

“His capacity to like is amazing, especially once you absorb to consideration his sad start to life. He now knows all the essential commands but with a twist. I tell him it's a gorgeous day today, he knows it means he has got to go outside of the house.

If I say “dinner time” and that i am cooking within the kitchen, Tim knows it means he's not allowed within the kitchen. If we are eating and that i say “dinner time” he knows he must sit on his bed and not come anywhere near we are eating.

The local kids like to hide his dog treats around my 2 acre property then call bent Tim ” Hide & Seek”. He finds all of them in no time in the least . he's also an excellent team member playing soccer, loves dress ups with my granddaughters.”

“At the instant he's in training learning to prevent , drop & crawl to the closest doorway once I give him the command “Fire”. this may be a part of a fireplace safety training at local schools when Tim visits them.

Tim is loved by all that meet him, even children terrified by dogs are soon won over by my gentle giant. So now you recognize why it had been my lucky day once I decided to feature Tim to my life!”
