Sad Dog Couldn’t Stop Staring at the Wall After Being Returned to the Shelter

 If a dog doesn’t grow up in a safe and happy environment, it is quite likely that it will become very antisocial, unhappy, and anxious

Because of this, when the pup does find himself in a position where he can genuinely relax, he often wants to curl up on himself, sheltering away from the world as they are not used to the feeling.

This is why it is very crucial that the hooman who is caring for this pup takes things very carefully, enabling the dog to relax at his own rate.

Arthur is a cute one-and-a-half-year-old Cattle Dog mix who spent his childhood living as a stray from an unclaimed litter.

He was immensely grateful to have been adopted immediately after arriving at the shelter. Unfortunately, his happiness did not last too long as his family ended up giving him back to the shelter as they were no longer able to take care of him.

This sad tragedy truly did take a toll on Arthur.

He was terribly miserable, worried, and reluctant to even look at anyone. However, his conduct was soon set to change when an outstanding hooman named Rocky came to hang out with him for a moment.

As Arthur remained avoiding eye contact, Rocky decided to try and gain his trust by offering him a reward.

Initially, he placed one in front of him, but the pup simply scented it. Then, he placed another one closer to him but, just like the first one, but no luck.

The rescuer then decided to place the treat in his hand and present it to Arthur, and to his astonishment, the dog ate it!

Rocky continued showering Arthur with sweet words, and with every single one of them, the pup’s heart was obviously melting away.

I am convinced that with time, Arthur will completely come out of his shell and find a family that will finally provide him with the life he deserved all along.

Rocky, your patience and understanding set the perfect example of just how crucial it is to take things slow with animals who need some time to figure out just what has happened to them.
