I posted Mr. Shiloh's picture last week. He was surrendered by his family to a shelter-- they said they were allergic to him. Maybe they were, but we hear this a lot. He was 5 years old and not doing well at all at the shelter. My friend, Barbara, went to pick him up for PVPC after we received a request to help him. She sent me an email to let me know how he is doing-- and I'll get more pictures later. In the midst of life, it's always good to read happy things, so I wanted to share with you.Shiloh (they are trying to decide if this will remain his name) will sleep anywhere he can nestle on Barbara or next to her-- he is very attached to her! He can be a little growly when he's picked up (I have one of those, too), and he's a little afraid of men, but he is getting better. (Barbara's husband and son are over 6'3" so I think Shiloh will learn that they are just fine.) He met some "very bad Shepherds" while on a walk and one of Barbara's other dogs told them off! He was protecting his new little brother! Shiloh runs around like a race horse, he holds his head high and is so graceful. I somehow think he will not be leaving my friend's home. That's fine-- she has adopted four from us and I know how wonderful she is-- so Shiloh has landed well! I can't wait to see more pictures of him!!
