Cowering beagle dog saved from being neglected in a dog shelter
Dog shelters are spread across the country and it is just full of a bunch of different dogs which had different experiences. The vast majority of these dogs have a bad experience that simply makes them either scared or aggressive, and in most cases, they become both.
Fear and aggression are the two most common behavior problems we see in dogs. Sometimes, aggressive dogs are actually fearful dogs. We’re always saddened to see a pet cower, tremble or pull on its leash to escape from a situation that should not cause it to be frightened.
Dogs that are frightened have specific postures and behaviors. A pet that is frightened or worried stands with its head lower than its back. It avoids eye contact and may freeze or attempt to escape. Its ears are laid back against its head and its tail is tucked between its legs.
Its mouth is closed or slightly ajar. It may tremble and keep distance between it and the person or thing it fears. Some dogs growl when they are frightened or feeling threatened. Females, in particular, may urinate or, in extreme cases, defecate. If the dog runs away, it looks back over its shoulder to be sure it is not being pursued.
As you can see in the footage below, a beagle dog which suffered from a bad past experience – judging from its look.
That beautiful little dog, kept cowering like that, avoiding any eye-contact with almost anyone. That dog was just all alone and broken.
What makes things even worse, is the typical problem in almost all dog shelters. It’s that dogs are probably neglected or ignored. Fortunately for her, she was lucky enough so that this man, would pay enough attention to her and try to cheer her up. After spending a few minutes with her, he fell in love with the dog. He immediately went to the person responsible and signed the adoption papers to get this dog out of its misery.
The man names that poor little dog “Noodles” and he didn’t just stop there.
He even introduced Weezie to Noodles. Weezie is another dog that this man has adopted before. As you can see in the next video, Noodles was a little intimidated in the beginning, but after spending about 6 weeks along with Weezie. Noodles had become a whole new dog and a member of a lovely small family.
