Training An Abused Dog To Love Again

It is such a tragedy when human abuse dogs, or any animal.  Sometimes it can take years for that animal to heal physically and emotionally.

This is a wonderful story of how an abused dog started to trust and love again.  In the video below we see an emotionally troubled dog who would bite herself as a way of coping with memories of past abuse.  The story is set in Korea and the dog’s name is Yiwol.  In the video, the conversation between the woman caring for Yiwol and the trainer is sub-titled in English.  Yiwol as scared of any object, especially if it was in the hand of a human.  And she would bite herself if a person touched her belly.

I have a friend who always said she wanted a cute fluffy dog to cuttle up with and love.  One day a little Bichon Frise mix puppy was hiding under her car.  When she approached the puppy, he would bark frantically and try to bite.  After several hours of patience and a lot of treats the dog finally came out from under the car.  She could never find the previous owner.  It was as if he was abandoned just for her.  So she gently would love on him and consistently show him he was safe.  She tells me now that she cuttles up with him every evening on the sofa.  She told me that, “God answered her prayer”.

Fortunately, with consistent training and gentle approach, most dogs who suffered abuse in the past can be rehabilitated.

We finally see in the video below that after all the training and time, Yiwol was not afraid of objects or of having her belly rubbed.  This is truly a story that can remind us that no matter how hard or a past we have had, we can always start over again for a brighter future.  If you enjoy this video will you Comment, Like or Share it below?

I've been very fortunate to have been raised with dogs and love and care for dogs, even to this day. That's why I love to share funny and inspirational stories about 'Man's Best Friend'.
