A German Shepherd lived apart from her owner for more than a year. Every day, her mom had to travel nine kilometers to come and feed her and take care of her needs. She has moved to a new home with her family, but the dog refuses to go with them.
When she tries to put a leash on her dog, Sandeul, she would start getting aggressive. She would growl and at times would attack. She already has several bites all over her body which has left marks. The worst one was when she had six stitches to close the wound.
But still, she comes back every day to care for Sandeul. She loves the dog so much and she is still trying to get her to move.
Source of happiness
According to the dog’s owner, Sandeul was there for her when she needed her the most. The senior Korean suffered from cancer for a long time and she got depressed. She got Sandeul as she heard that dogs are great companions.
True enough. they developed a special bond and it helped lift her spirits. She credits Sandeul for helping her recover. She is her source of happiness.
Sandeul wasn’t afraid of wearing a leash then. They would take many walks around their neighborhood. But one day, she just started hating them. So the kind lady couldn’t take the dog when they moved to a new house.
After more than 12 months of having to go back to her old home, she finally decided to get some professional help. An animal behaviorist came to her old home to assess the situation. After observing the dog for a while, he said that the dog had a traumatic experience in the area. She needed to be moved away from the house and start re-educating her.
They helped move the dog to her new house and started a series of therapy sessions. With love and patience, the old woman let the dog know that she was in a safe place and bolstered her confidence.
Slowly, the dog understood and started to calm down. She once again wore a leash and would take walks with her mom. It was the moment she had long waited for. Finally, they are completely together again.
