Pipoca: life of a puppy wasted
Age: d-o-b: 10 January 2019
Size: medium (19kg, 50cm)
Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised
An irresponsible guy had 6 puppies at home because he did not sterilise his dog. He brought them to the shelter. He promised to have his dog sterilised soon afterwards but we never heard from him so probably he just said what we wanted to hear. We rehome the puppies. Pipoca was one of them, rehomed first. A woman came, Pipoca was only 7 weeks old and the woman fell in love with her.
If you adopt a puppy of this age you can educate them dog like you want.
But this woman brought Pipoca back after 5 months saying that she does not get along with her other dog.
Or maybe she was not given any education? Nor the other dog.
Pipoca came to us and she doe snot walk at all on the leash. She was never taken out of the house. She is nervous and vary of strangers. Because she has never met anyone. She gets scared easily and runs away or barks. A puppy that could have been well educated was simply kept in isolation and not given any attention.
But she is young…. we can still reverse the process. We can see already that she warms up to people she sees regularly. She can learn. She wants to trust. Just needs time.
