A Thundershirt Proves Better than Meds for an Anxious, Deaf Dog

Champ in his Thundershirt

Thanks to our friends at Thundershirt, we were able to send 60 of these great shirts to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Hopkinton, MA.

Big Fluffy Dog’s Elizabeth Zaccaro wrote to tell us how a Thundershirt has helped a dog named Champ:

“Champ is a 1-year-old, deaf Golden Retriever-Great Pyrenees who is available for adoption through our rescue. Champ has severe anxiety issues and we have found the Thundershirt calms him. He was on medication, but it did not help him, so we are using non-medical ways to help relieve his anxiety.

“When Champ gets adopted, we will send him home with his shirt.”

Donate a Thundershirt to the shelter of your choice.
