A friend of mine volunteers at an animal shelter. Recently he sent me a photo of a cute little puppy with a very sad look.
As it turned out, the dog’s name is Chita and she came to Ray for the second time.
For the first time in his house, she turned out to be quite a baby when Ray found her on the street. After a couple of weeks of treatment, the man found her a family. A few months later, the new owners returned Chita, offering Ray to take her back or the dog would again be on the street. Ray accepted the dog.
As it turned out, the owners decided to abandon the animal because of the slipper that she gnawed. The dog is 5 months old and her teeth are climbing, so she gnaws at everything she sees, but such an argument did not suit the owners, the dog again ended up in a temporary shelter.
I don’t know what the slippers were made of and how much it cost, but, frankly, I don’t think that this is a reason to refuse the animal, and even more so, to threaten it with the street.
Dogs are not always trainable, and not all owners can handle them, but here we are talking about a small and playful animal. The desire to gnaw everything is simply related to age and will soon pass, but people had no desire to wait and explain.
Chita quickly got used to life with Ray and made friends with other animals, of which there are many in the apartment, but there is still pain and resentment in her eyes. The animal loved its owners, but they could not forgive her for even a small mistake.
