OMG! Thank you Lynne for taking this boy, but having got to know you over the last 9 months I wouldn’t have expected anything else. I’m sniffing back tears here, but Truman, I am so looking forward to meeting you little man xxxx

Like everyone else, I wept when I saw Truman and read what had happened to him, but what made me cry even more was the thought of him lying rigid in his bed trying to blend in so no one would notice him. How utterly heartbreaking is that. [cry.gif]

What this poor baby must have been through is hard to imagine, but he is safe now and will know what it is to be truly loved. love4.gif love4.gif

I can't put into words what I hope happens to the evil scum who did this to him. Let's hope they get exactly what they deserve.

Truman has arrived ...well late this afternoon. He is a young Ambull x Staffie whose instincts are good with dogs and very friendly with people. Truman has obviously gained cinfidence since when he was first found stray. Lovely boy.

His skin has healed and there is just pinkish thin fur over his shoulders and lower back. He has come with piriton to stop him feeli ng itchy. Early days but excited to have Truman on board!

I had the pleasure of meeting Truman this morning.
The first thing I have to say is a massive thank you to the rescue who took him in and have been looking after him prior to coming to us. Through their hard work, giving him time, understanding, love and care and believing in him, they have performed a miracle and he is now a happy, friendly boy whose ordeal is now in the past and he has moved on. He has healed (is continuing to heal) so well in both body and mind.
Truman is much bigger in reality than he appears in the photos but that is just all the more dog to love. He welcomed me into his kennel and I wondered if he would be comfortable with me putting a harness on him. Well, I needn't have worried because he was more than happy to have his harness on and then we were out walking. On a hot sunny day I kept to the woods as I imagine his skin is sensitive to the sun where he was burnt. He walked beautifully on the lead, just ambling along, checking out the smells. He is very voice responsive and was happy to go wherever I asked him to. He had a good sniff around the poets hut, tried out both the sofa and the comfy dog bed. He liked both but I think the sofa was his favourite and he was happy to be cuddled. This dog is a super trooper and has a wonderful, friendly temperament. Just WOW!

Here you can see how well his skin is healing.

Truman is such a friendly soul. He loves going out for walks but is a little nervous and looks to his walker for reassurance and guidance. He can get a little worried passing other dogs but with a kind reassuring word he is quickly back enjoying his walk. he is a stunning lad and seems to trust people despite his past. He will sit for treats and takes them gently. Someone has looked after and worked with him in the past.

Truman was my last walk of the day yesterday. I’d not met him before but he is so lovely he seemed happy to make a new friend. Once out and away from the kennels he was a lovely walk. He responded well to commands and didn’t really pull. He regularly looks for direction and is happy to comply with your wishes. His skin has healed very well although he’s still not overly sure about you touching his right rump but loves a tickle on the other areas of his body. Considering what has happened to Truman I am amazed at what a well rounded boy he is, he is still loving, friendly and happy and will make an amazing addition to a home.
