Tuna's Diary
21st December 2019
This afternoon Tuna arrived and we introduced him to the other dogs here.  He was fine so we popped him in the crate while I made them their food and he ate his well.
30th December 2019
This morning Tuna went to the vet to be neutered and weighed in at 34.4kg.  All went well and we brought him home late afternoon to rest and recover.
31st December 2019
This morning the family who are adopting Tuna came to complete the paperwork and take him home.  They are changing his name to Shadow.  They realise he was only neutered yesterday so to be careful with him and keep an eye on how it heals. Shadow will be living with a couple and their two boys, where we hope he has a long and happy life with his new family.
