Truman – Dog Clown


A gift

Timber was my soul dog. When he trotted over the Rainbow Bridge, I knew he would never be replaced. I did not want to replace him. After a year or so, I started thinking about “what if”. I made a mental list of what I would require in a new dog. It was an impossible list. The list was fashioned after Timber’s mature personality with my love of bling animals.

  • Big hound type
  • Very responsive to people
  • Therapy dog material
  • Laid back but not lazy
  • I wanted a Australian Shepherd, but also loved Bloodhounds.

Truman grew in body and tastes. The pink gummy bear disappeared, but his cuddle-bear nature appeared.

He is also a well loved therapy dog.
Ironically, although I had searched Petfinder for Australian Shepherd, Truman does not have a drop of Aussie blood.
