Rescued Dog is Grateful
A dog became trapped in a concrete-walled river in Romania. We don’t know how long he was there before two men hauled him out, but it was long enough for the dog to realize he was in danger. He readily display the pure joy of being on dry land and was very appreciative of the rescue. Contrast his reaction to that of the cat in Sweden that was rescued by a sailor from under a boat. Dogs cannot hide their feelings. Cat make it an art. That’s a good dog.
There has been much discussion about holding a grown dog by the scruff of its neck. While that isn’t the best way to handle a dog from the dog’s point of view, it is safest for a man approaching a frightened dog he doesn’t know. (via reddit)
