Update on Mr. Roy! It’s been 5 days with our buddy Roy and we got his tail wagging again, thanks to everyone’s great tips. He still struggles a little with his low dog esteem. But he’s getting there. 👍Thanks again everyone! ✨💛✨
This is Roy. Mama and I found him stranded in the middle of the freeway atop a reasonably high median. We rescued the fellow but now realize that he needs a little more help than we had thought. He has a collar on with no tags. So he used to have a home. But it is evident that this dog has gone through some major mental abuse from his previous keepers. His head and tail are constantly between his limbs. He has no will to bite or even bark to defend himself as a healthy dog would. He shrinks back from any kindness offered to him-petting, playing, toys, food, praise. We’re guessing it’s a type of ‘shell shock’ he’s suffering due to his previous owners who set him loose on the freeway to get run over by a truck and killed. We’re trying our best to rehabilitate him. But we’re inexperienced and can’t do this on our own. Any tips or advice would be appreciated to help this little guy. We want to help him be a happy dog. Not a dog that acts like a clinically depressed human. Thanks!
