Laird T.: Thulani Will Comfort You

Laird T. Relaxing

Laird T. was dropped off by his owners at the Castaic Shelter in southern California with a request to euthanize him.  They said he had cancer (lymphosarcoma, stage 3) and had only a month to live according to their vet.  They were offered a voucher to have him euthanized by their vet, but they declined.

Laird has been eating well, walks well, and has been quite energetic.  On the surface, he appears to be asymptomatic at this time, but we have not observed him for very long.

For now it appears that Laird T. has some good life left to him, but we do not know how much.  Based on his vet visit today, we are optimistic that we can give him some good quality life with the help of medications.  This we will do.

Laird_T_laughingLaird T. is part of our Thulani Program, and as such, he will live out what quality life he has left as a permanent hospice dog. Laird T. will need an especially dedicated foster family, one that emotionally is very strong.  If you are interested in learning more about Laird T. or possibly giving him a loving final chapter, please contact Bob at Thulanidogs@gsrnc.org
