Dog Who Spent His Life on a Chain Has Learned How Wonderful It Is to Be Loved

“Over the past month our boy has blossomed – he knows no strangers – everyone he meets instantly falls in love with his adorable face and floppy ears.”

This comes from Speranza Animal Rescue:

 

We rescued Duke from Harrisburg a few months ago. His life spent on a chain.

When I picked him up the woman said he was never socialized , and could be fear aggressive… you could see in his eyes that he had a hard time trusting… on the car ride home that night he was quiet and timid….

Over the past month our boy has blossomed – he knows no strangers – everyone he meets instantly falls in love with his adorable face and floppy ears.

We brought him out at the event this past weekend – we were not sure what to expect.

I saw him numerous times laying on his back for belly rubs – children and others crowding around him – and you could just see the happiness in his face.

I can’t express how proud and amazed I am of this dog – he just goes to show that dogs aren’t broken – they are bruised, and they can heal.

  1. Had happy tears in my eyes. First thinking of this poor baby chained up for all of his life (up to that point), and then seeing and reading how happy he was. Thanks to the family who gave him a chance to be loved and wanted.

  2. Thank you rescuers. He is a gorgeous dog and it is so heartwarming to see what a little TLC can do. You all are amazing folks..

  3. I am very glad he is off the chain I don’t think any animal should ever be on a chain or in a cage!♡ THANKS for the wonderful work that you do and all TLC you give these animals!♡

  4. Dogs should never be on chains. Villalobos Rescue in Louisiana goes to caring but ignorant owners and helps them get their dogs off chains. Check out Villalobos and see them on Pit Bulls and Parolees on Animal Planet. These people are saints!

  5. Crowds of Children crowded around him bending over him – really – bit of a risk to let unsuspecting children & parents take with a fearsome dog with trust issues who is still learning trust & spent his life in fear & aggressive out of fear. Gives a dog a bad name; not to mention irresponsible & an accident waiting to happen. Great rescue & work but very poor judgement.
