Is Your Dog A Zero Or A Hero?
There is no way to know for sure until the time comes. I live in the country and people are always Dumping dogs off.There was a dog hanging around for a long time,that was always afraid of us.He wouldn't even come up to eat until we went inside.Little by little he became more accepting over a years time.My wife said he was worthless cause he was so skiddish.When company came over he stayed far away,would just watch.The family said thedog was afraid of everyone and everything,it would jump every time the door slamed. they wanted to get rid of it,I kept it because I felt sorry for it.My wife would always walk in the evening,the dog got to where it would walk along with her.My wife sad the Dog was useless ,cause when she reached a neighbors house,(this neighbor had two mean dogs) our dog would not walk past their house.It would stop before the house sit and wait until my wife walked to the end of the road and came back,and then would rejoin her on the way back.One day the neighbors gate was open,when my wife walked by,and these two dogs came out and began to attack her. Our dog ( that was sitting 100 yards back down the road) charged up the road and began fighting with both of these bigger dogs.By the time the neighbor came out and called them back our dog was torn up badly,but never stoped Protecting my wife. We took him to the vet it was over 500.00 to stitch him up.This dog was not a coward obviously just very smart,It stopped before the neighbors so as not to upset these bad dogs unnessarly,this is the only explation I can think of, cause when my wife was being attacked It didn't hesitate to suffer great harm to protect her. The dog is o k now ,but still will not let anyone touch her but the Family. My wife has changed her opnion of him,that's for sure.
