You live, you learn- Shadow’s Tail
Talent is a curious creature; it creeps up when you least expect and leaves you utterly gobsmacked when you encounter it. Shadow bounded into our lives at DogtownSA a bewildered emaciated dog. He was a manic concoction of energy and uncertainty. I would scarcely have guessed that beneath his frenetic veneer, lived an insatiable eagerness to learn and the potential to be canine champion. At DogtownSA we aspire to help all our dogs reach their full potential, and for Shadow this is going to be an interesting journey.
All our furries at DogtownSA are amazing. It is a blessing to share their love and watch them learn and grow into the happy dogs they deserve to be. What makes Shadow so special is his ability to focus and learn new skills. He lives to please, and is always begging for new opportunities to learn and excel. You couldn’t wish for a better companion in the world of dog sports. At Shadow’s behest we have begun formal obedience and competition tracking training. Shadow has aspirations of being DogtownSA’s first qualified Working Trials Champion.
At his first tracking session, Shadow outshone his more experienced canine counter-parts. He was unperturbed by the wind swirling the scent or by the birds flying overhead; he put his nose to the ground and figured out his scent pads with ease. Few could believe that it was only his first attempt.
Shadow embodies our motto: ‘Rescues Rule’. It is just the beginning for this talented boy. Watch this space: the road of aspirant champions will be paved by many different challenges
