Sad Dog Sits In The Corner Of Kennel But Totally Opens Up When Belt Is Removed From Neck

 Steward wanted to hide from the world, but the moment they removed the painful reminder of his past, he was set free.

Photographer Rebecca Rood was walking through the Whitfield County Animal Shelter when she found a tragic dog sitting within the corner of his kennel. Stewart seemed as if he were trying to form himself invisible to the planet , and it had been obvious he had a rough past.

Rebecca learned that Stewart had been found engaged within the woods in Georgia, and he had a thick belt wrapped around his neck that made him super uncomfortable. Workers tried to get rid of it, but he would growl at them whenever . He just didn’t trust anyone.

Rebecca got as on the brink of Stewart as he would allow, and she or he began to take some pictures. She posted them to her Facebook page where they attracted the eye of Courtney Bellew, director of Special Needs Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation (SNARR).

Courtney reached out and took Stewart to a veterinary clinic. There, he was sedated for tests and to urge neutered. And while he was under, they were finally ready to remove the belt from around his neck. That’s when Stewart became a totally different dog.

It’s as if the belt were a reminder of his past, and removing it set him free. the instant he awakened from anesthesia, Stewart was wagging his tail and eager to play! Courtney posted some videos of Stewart twiddling with toys to the SNARR’s Facebook page.
