Captain has decided on a new name…last name, that is. He thinks Captain Perkins has a nice ring to it, and has asked if he can just go ahead and change the word “foster” to “forever” and call where he is, “home.” And his mom and dad of course said yes, and celebrated his Gotcha Day this past weekend with balloons, mom and dad shirts, and a cookie made just for him!
Steve and Wendy (also the SEGSP TN Volunteer Coordinator) have worked tirelessly and patiently with Captain’s severe anxiety issues and Captain has been working hard, too, showing definite signs of progress. The Perkins know that he still has some special behaviors and needs, but they are committed to him and couldn’t love him more.
We are so very happy for Captain, also known as “Legs,” and couldn’t be happier for his mom and dad, too. Thank you so much for working so hard with him and loving him through his time in foster. Captain was dropped at a boat dock some time ago, unwanted and deserted. We are thrilled to know he will never feel that way again!
