Hey Del and Yvette!
I am so excited I am sending you this right away from my phone, haha!
This is a recent update from my ex-foster and TG Dog Koko – though now he is known as Jocko!
I have spoken to Eileen and have seen her Facebook updates about him online and it is so awesome too see him flourish – but it’s no wonder in such an amazing home!! I am so glad he came to foster with me and he has set the standard for any dog I adopt in the future ;D!
One thing I’d like to mention before you read it is that when he came to me he had severe separation anxiety and severe crate fear/anxiety!
When he left me to live with his new family he had no more separation anxiety with me, and I was hopeful he’d remember what he learned here, but I was worried he might regress back without his usual people there. And of course dogs love to prove us wrong!
I was told he did wonderful and has been an awesome, loving, and smart boy! And if you look below you can see just how far he’s come from being a crate fearful and anxious doggy!
He is definitely in the best forever home I could imagine for him and I know he (and his family) couldn’t be happier!
Just couldn’t wait to send you that because seeing him in those photos brought tears of joy to my eyes!!! :’) Hope you’ll share this on the TG blog for all to see!
Thought I’d send along Jocko’s grad photos. He was great in class, the star pupil – he is so smart! One great thing was that we worked on crate training before and after each class, and started him from an x-pen, but the last two classes he did entirely from his crate like the other dogs, with no fuss at all. We are proud of him!
