Remembrances of abuse can psychologically disrupt a dog and switch its attitude towards people continually. The dog’s name is Rain. She is a homeless German Shepherd. Rain hid under a van for several days. Rain was scared, leaning against the wall behind the vehicle and shaking uncontrollably when someone approached him.
The neighborhood alerted the animal protection group ‘Hope For Paws’ about Rain’s behavior. Soon several rescuers arrived on the scene to help Rain. Rescuer Loreta was the first to approach Rain. But Rain completely silenced the rescuer with his frightened body language and heartbreaking screams.
The rescue team was shocked to hear Rain’s disturbing human screams as he tried to escape. It was hard to imagine what kind of abuse she had suffered that caused her to express her pure fear so intensely. She was scared and expressed it in a way that rescuers had never heard before. Rain hid under the vehicle and prayed for the rescuers to leave. She then crawled into an uncomfortable area to put more distance between her and the rescuers. But as the rescuers cordoned off the area with a net, Loreta caught Rain with a soft rope.
Even after being rescued, Rain’s disturbing screams and expressions of human suffering did not stop. With great effort, rescuers put her in a crate and took her to the hospital to be checked. Fortunately, Rain began to sense the goodwill of his rescuers and calmed down considerably during a bath!
Rain’s mental recovery after her rescue was amazing! She became so loving and affectionate in her foster home that she found her forever family two weeks after her rescue. She’s now called “Cheeky Pants Dunbar”, a great name to match his ridiculous personality. Rain spends her days with her canine siblings and getting his tummy scratched by her humans! She has come full circle since her rescue and we are so happy for her!
