He’s out. He’s safe.…


He's out. He's safe. GB has left Animal Services. His favorite toy is a shark. He loves being called "Good Boy" (hence his name). He thinks he should be a lap dog. And he smells like poop. He's just a normal dog who had been at Animal Services for way, way too long. He was going crazy, spiraling, falling apart. His intestines were going bonkers with diarrhea. He was lashing out and redirecting. Growling and barking at everyone who walked by. It got to the point where he was no longer safe around children and other dogs. Now that he's out, we have already seen a completely different guy. He went from scary aggressive to the ultimate cuddler in an instant. 😍 Many people believe this can be the situation with EVERY dog marked as aggressive at AS and that's simply not the case. The handlers and behavioral specialists can tell the difference between a dog who is super stressed and a dog who actually has a dangerous temperament. Sometimes they fall in between. Everyone unanimously agreed that GB was simply stressed and needed a second (third? fourth??) chance. So he got it. We are still not out of the woods. We still wouldn't be comfortable having him with other dogs or children until he can stabilize a little bit. Because of his level of anxiety, we opted to hospitalize him for a couple of days first. Our vets will address his anxiety and help him work down the stress levels he was under. We are hoping after a couple of days, we can have him in a place where he could successfully go into foster care without concerns for safety. In the meantime, we do need your help with the costs. Hospitalizing a dog is extremely pricey, but we felt this would put him in the best possible position to transition into foster care. If you can help make a donation towards his care, he would greatly appreciate it. ♥️ Click the link in the profile to donate via PayPal or consider becoming a monthly donor so we can help more dogs like GB get their second chances! - - #dogsofinstagram#dogoftheday#puppylove#adoptdontshop#rescuedog#itsallgoodep#suncity#elpaso#elpasotexas#muttsofinstagram#rescue#mutt#instadog#instagramdogs#ilovemydog#puppiesofinstagram#dogsofig
