Edie is a tiny dog, weighing only ten pounds. In Lancaster shelter, she was together with hundreds other dogs, and was characterized as aggressive. She couldn’t overcome this behavior and it was decided to put her to sleep. Each dog that shows signs of aggression is considered unadoptable. These dogs, along side sick dogs, are the ones most often put to sleep. That’s how it should have gone for Edie.
But, man named Bronwyne took pity on Edie. It was simply impossible for this dog not to show aggression. Alone, little, among hundreds of other dogs much larger than her. Edie was, in fact, frightened. Very frightened.
They agreed that a veterinarian should do assessment. If he decides that dog is aggressive, Edie will be put to sleep.
Brought in a carrier, Edie started to growl and bark as soon as vet approached. When she was taken out of the carrier, she hid in the corner and even defecated out of fear. This little dog was deeply stresses and traumatized. It seem that the last chance for Eddie was gone.
But, no one wanted to give up that easily. By putting leash around her neck, veterinarian pulled her to his lap. Edie suddenly stopped defending herself. She was quite. For a moment, it seem time has stopped. Veterinarian, gently petted her head and Edie didn’t resist. Soon, something amazing happened. Edie started wiggling her tail. Started to cuddle. To be happy.
Every living being needs affection. Love is the most powerful force that can give us strength to solve any problem. Edie needed just a warm hug and a little love.
Not all aggressive dogs are dangerous and scary. Some are just too afraid. Don’t forget that if you decide to adopt a dog.
