Waiting... and Waiting!

When you drop off your dog to the pound.... you are an arsehole. Your dog will be terrified, and for some there is no coming back from the trauma!! Many dogs just sit and wait for their owners to come back, they do not understand why the person they loved has walked away. This is what happened to Kiwi...Kiwi is a 6 year old Chihuahua who was dropped off to the pound.

When he was dropped off he weighed 3.2kg, he refused to eat... he wanted his owner, but of course they were never coming back. So he sat in his bed, and waited....

When we collected him he was sick, on fluids to keep him alive, and weighed 1.3KG... Feeding him baby food, and giving him intensive drugs he got physically better... but mentally he is damaged.

Kiwi refuses to leave his bed, he refuses to interact with other dogs, and when humans go near him he screams. He is terrified, he is shutting down. This is heartbreaking for all of us, as all he wants is the one thing we cannot give him.... his owner...

Thankfully one of our foster homes has stepped up, and offered to take Kiwi, to see if they can work their magic, come on Kiwi you can do this.... Yet another part of our team that make sure we save lives.
