Janet first laid eyes on Tim when she went to make a donation ant her local animal shelter and what she saw made her heart break.
Janet shared Tim’s sad beginning and happy ending with DogFull.com as part of our Rescue Dogs are Family series and it goes as follows:
“Three years ago, I went to the local Animal Rescue Centre (RSPCA) to donate some blankets for the animals. In a conversation with the counter staff, they remembered my work in the Pet Shop Industry and the fact I was a Dog Handler.
The manager asked me if I would be interested in adopting a very special dog as he had been one of the worst neglect cases the centre had ever seen. At that time, I mentioned I had only just lost my beloved dog and was not ready for another dog just yet.”
“Then the manager brought out a photo of ‘Tim’. My heart broke for this poor emancipated dog, in an instant I knew he was mine. Well that was one of the luckiest days of my life. Tim is now my best friend, devoted playmate to my 2 grandchildren and friend to everyone who walks through my gate.”
Tim is loved by all that meet him, even children terrified by dogs are soon won over by my gentle giant. So now you know why it was my lucky day when I decided to add Tim to my life!”
