Alex the German Shepherd was kept outside on a chain all his life since he was branded as a “killer guard dog”.
Over the years, even the dog’s owner stopped going near him due to the fear of getting bitten and mauled. When a man found out about Alex’s constantly chained state, he volunteered to release the dog.
As the man entered the backyard where Alex was chained, the dog immediately went into fight mode. He lunged at the man and maintained looking for a chance to attack him.
After a challenging few minutes, the man lured Alex right into getting inside the crate with the help of a blanket.
As the man protected Alex and drove him in his car, the dog finally felt a feeling of freedom. Just 25 minutes later, he really walked out of the crate and let his brave savior animal him for the first time!
By the following early morning, the canine lost all his so-called “hostility” and only required hugs and cuddles from the man!
Dogs are social and affectionate animals and chaining or isolating them only ruins their mental health. Statistics prove that chained canines are most likely to bite and are also much more vulnerable in the face of a predator attack.
We hope this video works as a lesson to owners who demand maintaining their dogs chained 24/7.
