A dog with a painful past spent only 2 weeks with his foster family, but this short stay transformed him and made him a hero in the eyes of his benefactor. A story told by The Dodo.
Brownies had never really known life in a house. Coming from a shelter in New Mexico, he had been adopted 4 times, but had been returned to the shelter each time.
High Plains Humane Society
Recently, an association based in Colorado had expressed its willingness to offer him a second chance. But before he made the trip, he had to stay with a host family for 15 days.
She is the volunteer Molly Analore who took care of him. The dog was terrified during the first few days. He had difficulty getting used to the rules of living in a hostel. However, he has made progress thanks to the patience of his foster mother.
Brownies had finally begun to relax, communicate and assimilate the basics of everyday life at home. So, for example, he got into the habit of sitting facing the door and barking when he wanted to go out to relieve himself. However, the four-legged one remained somewhat distant.
A few days before his arrival, Molly Analore had felt slight discomfort on several occasions, especially dizziness phases. She hadn’t really noticed.
One night, however, a new crisis arose, far more intense than before. Her heart was beating fast and she felt very weak. As she lay on her couch, Brownies came to join her and snuggled up to her, he who was not used to it.
