A sad and frightened dog who spent his time staring at a wall regains his zest for life

In October 2020, 26 dogs were rescued from deplorable living conditions. Among them was Ralph. The animal was cared for by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), and kept staring at the wall of its kennel. Until happiness knocks on the door to his heart …

In 2020, the RSPCA intervened in a private home to recover about twenty neglected dogs. Most of them were kept in dark shelters and had very little contact with humans. Simply unacceptable living conditions.

According to Justin StubbsRSPCA inspector, the dogs were ” loved but the number had become too large for the owner. We worked closely with him and he agreed that it was best for the animals to be entrusted to us “.

When they were recovered, the canids were not used to being handled, which was the case Ralph. The hairs of the latter were tangled, as well as covered with excrement and urine.

Patience paid off

The little dog was so scared and upset that he spent his days curled up in his kennel staring at the wall. ” The team spent weeks quietly next to him and offered him treats said the director of the refuge, Tiffany Saunders. The animal would sneak up behind its visitors to grab its treat, run away and settle down in a corner to eat it alone.
