Thorp Dog Auction Scrapbook: Lazarus

Previous -- Next

Lazarus the carirn terrier is so terrified of humans that he scrunches down and tries to merge into the floor whenever anybody approaches him.

     This sweet little guy is Lazarus, a two-and-a-half-year old cairn terrier. Lazaraus is "undocument," imported from Iowa for the sale with no certificate of health as required by law.

     Lazarus is so terrified of people that he huddles behind his bed and tries to merge with the floor whenever anyone approaches. His former owner should be very proud.

     Says his shelter caretaker, "Lazarus is the dog that concerns me the most! I’m still not able to vaccinate, heartworm test or collar him. Even throwing a towel over him sets him off. He is going to be my personal project dog once the first wave of dogs head up to our REBOUND program for socialization ." (See WGBA-TV's report on the REBOUND program: The Long Road to Recovery (5/17/07).)
