Abused Dog Stares At Wall
Megan Mayer 3/30/2016
Angel, a greyhound mix, was rescued by PAWs Animal Rescue in Ireland. When they brought her to her new room, she refused to turn around and face it. Instead she stayed in the corner, staring at the wall.
PAWs believes she was traumatized and abused by those she was with before. All she did was face the wall in their office, not moving for days. Even when they brought food for her, Angel only ate when no one was watching. Finally, they brought in another dog from the same pound.
There was an immediate change in Angel. Even though she had mange and the rescuers believed she would have long-term psychological problems, six months later she has found her voice. They think the dog they brought could be her brother, and named him Cliff. Angel was adopted by a couple who had just lost two of their dogs. She is doing very well now, happy in her new home with her new family.
