Today I went to a shelter and pulled a very scared and not socialized little guy; it will take much work to get him where he should have been a year ago. This is what happens when a dog is just part of the backyard and doesn’t meet and play with people at all. This is a great little guy. He looks to be a year old, part shepherd and aussie maybe, but so, so scared. Who wouldn’t be in his shoes (or paws). I only hope the rescue spends the enormous amount of time it will take to get where he can trust people like he should. Time will tell.
I also was tasked with transporting 33 dogs that were part of a hoarding pack of 70 that came from the desert area. Luckily all were small and after two trips we had them settled in for the night at a local ranch. I will pick up 15 on Friday for their flight. The others will have to wait a week for another flight. About 20 had to go back to the hoarder as there wasn’t any rescue to take them. So sad. At least they are now fixed; but knowing the types that hoarders are, she will only add to the ones returning. Never ending. At least we saved most.
