At the end of february this year, we adopted a dog who had been dumped without any explanation beyond "Here, you can have him" on a shih tzu breeder's doorstep. She brought him to a rescue centre, wheich is where we heard about him.

When Henry was first brought into our house by the lady from the rescue centre, she told us she'd never seen a dog who was so withdrawn and that it'd be a long, slow road to helping him recover. For the whole of that first evening he just lay on the floor with his face completely hidden and just blocked us out completely :(

This is Henry about three days after arrived:

He was just the saddest little puppy you've ever seen; he was so withdrawn and afraid, and I don't think he'd ever been taken for a walk in his life.

Anyway, that was three months ago and he's so much better!









He still has a long long way to go; he's still very shy and nervous at times, and reverts to hiding if he's startled or tired, but he's the most loving, affectionate, sweet-natured little pupper underneath it all :3:

We had chooks as a kid and did this to them all the time.

Roll them on their backs and gently trace a line from their neck to their abdomen a few times and it mesmerises them. They'll stay frozen for up to a minute unless you poke them or make a loud noise, like clapping.

'Chook' looks like a racial slur to me, every time, even though I know it just is another word for chicken.

Henry? The vet that assessed him when he was first taken in thought he was less than a year old, which would make him about 15 months old now - which is obviously great news for both his chances of a full recovery from trauma and for us to have our lovely puppy for as long as possible. :)
