Sirius of the Week for August 7 - 13, 2005
This week our Sirius is Captain, and his person writes,
"Captain is a 4 year old Doberman who was a rescue. I'm his 5th and
final owner! His first owners were a couple of college students who
thought they could raise him in their dorm. His second owner was
in the military and was shipped off to Iraq. His third owners were a
family of 4; and when Captain began to get bigger, they got rid of
him for fear that he would harm one of their children. His fourth
owner apparently had him teathered to a pole in his backyard.
Judging from the scars on his right ear and the very large scar on
his nub, this owner chopped off his tail and attempted to crop his
ears :( Captain was already 1 1/2 years old when this all took place.
He was dropped off at a shelter when he was 2, and that's when I
found him. I've had him a little over 2 years.
"As far as food is concerned, Captain likes anything I'm eating.
He loves cheese and bacon, as I imagine most dogs do. He like
playing with tennis balls although he's very uncoordinated!"
