HISTORY: Terrence came to the attention of his rescuer in Qatar in the Mid-East, when sent a photograph of the dog tied up with string like a turkey where dogs by the dozens were in need of being rescued. Made no sense he was tied like that, other than someone thought is was entertaining. Abuse and killing dogs brutally is sadly common there. In some countries in mid-east dogs are not even allowed on the street even as pets! The terrible religion sees the moving loving creatures, as dirty! Very luckily, Terrence’s rescuer provided a safe and loving haven at his home, along with a few dozen he also saves and cares for, until he could fly Terrence to Canada for adoption, since no one would adopt him in his country.
