   Testimonial:
  HELP FOR A NERVOUS SHELTER DOG THAT COULDNíT BE TOUCHED
Testimonial By: Debbie Conradie        Publish Date: 2006-01-01

Letter from Practitioner Debbie Conradie in Cape Town.

Just a short note to tell you that I went with Cecily to work on a large dog (Bruno) that she rescued from a township and is now in a kennel at the Cape vet hospital where she houses a few of her rescues. I was told that no one had been able to touch him for 2 years. I was able to touch and stroke him after just 45 min!! I went in with my wands and he was really nervous, running this way and that and snapping at the wands. I wish you could have seen his face 45min later as he stood almost behind me while I was sitting on his pallet TTouching him, mostly chimp and Llama touch.

Cecily read his face for me as I was not looking at him much. Iíve seen this before with these dogs Ė once you touch them they get this look and they canít help but enjoy themselves. He was so happy to hang put where I was sitting it was sad to have to leave. I will go back as often as I can but the sad fact is what are the chances of him finding a home in the long run?  Cecily is so sweet Ė she keeps saying itís a miracle. We know that Ttouch is the real hero.
 
I came home from Bruno in the pouring rain to be greeted enthusiastically (as usual) by my little dog who had her warm jacket on and looking radiantly healthy and shiny. I just hugged her and told her what an extremely lucky dog she was to have a warm bed and good food and people who love her.
