the Fate of the thrown dog

What happens to the thrown dogs and what destiny expects them? People who throw dogs seldom think of it. And would cost.

When a dog remains without favourite owner in others place (even if it is a shelter, but not the street), it loses "base of safety". The animal sits not movably, investigates an environment less and tries to call the owner we howl or we bark, tries to find it or to escape if it is locked in the closed space.

the Severe stress leads
to problems with intelligence. The dog can forget for a while teams or it is bad to be guided in a surrounding situation.

the Thrown dogs endure 3 stages of grieving:
  1. Protest.
  2. Despair.
  3. Discharge.
leads the Stress to decrease in immunity of a dog, stomach ulcers and deterioration of wool. Stomach pains and alarm force animals to chew or eat inedible objects that reduces pain, but aggravates problems with health even more.

as a result of disorder of digestion develops untidiness. It is possible to eradicate this habit only when the dog falls into good hands, but not everyone will decide to take a dog with such problems – and the vicious circle turns out.

to the Thrown dog will carry if it gets to good (a keyword "good") a shelter where volunteers will be able competently to take care of it, or will find new careful owners. Otherwise, alas, the destiny it is unenviable – wanderings which come to an end very sadly, or life locked up.

the Good sign demonstrating that the dog accustoms to a shelter – the fact that it gets out of the box and gets into it at a dog are lifted ears, a tail and the head is raised. Employees of the American shelters note that the similar state is characteristic of dogs in 48 – 96 hours after hit in a shelter.

As for new house, the easiest to a dog to get used to it if she lives in the open-air cage on the street or, on the contrary, in the master's bedroom.

the First option does not give to a dog the chance to do strong harm to property of new owners, so, it is exposed to pressure less, it has less chances to be thrown again and she can have a rest better.

of Advantage of the second option is faster and easy formation of affection for new owners that does correction of behavior by more possible, despite risk of damage of property and manifestation of behavioural problems.

If lodge a dog in kitchen or a corridor and do not allow to enter the bedroom, then, unfortunately, the probability of repeated refusal of it strongly increases.

All this needs to be considered if you made the decision to take a dog whom the previous owner refused.
