Dog sanctuaries are not ideal places for canines to stay for an extended period of time. While we appreciate that these canines have a house and food to eat, living in a shelter might be overwhelming.
It’s loud and chaotic, with constant barking. The kennels are usually sparsely furnished. A shelter can be frightening for a dog accustomed to living in a house.
Carson, a lovely Pit Bull, was abandoned at a sanctuary after his family decided they had enough of him. After his family gave up on him, they surrendered him. He did have some allergies that caused skin issues, however he was a fantastic dog. Carson was clearly too disturbed in the shelter environment to be laid off. He just lay down and shook strongly while everybody’s hearts broke.
Lauren, a volunteer with Philly Bully Team, learned about Carson and chose to sign him out of the shelter and bring him house. She knew that a dog like Carson required to feel safe in order for him to thrive. Carson was grateful to his saviour from the minute he saw her.
Wherever Lauren went, so did Carson. They were an ideal suit. Lauren understood that this puppy needed constant focus, and she ensured he got it.
Lauren also knew they were a suit made in heaven, and she informed the rescue group that she wished to make the adoption final. They concurred. Carson is overjoyed to be reunited with Lauren that he won’t allow her out of his view. It’s really endearing when you think about it, except when she has to obtain stuff done, like working from house. A 60-pound canine on your lap can be obstructive. Lauren, on the other hand, is such a good sport!
Snuggling, on the other hand, is Carson’s favorite activity. He likes to go with walks and seek out the best sticks. He enjoys walking with a stick in his mouth. According to Lauren, “his entire body wags.” It’s beautiful to see a dog go from shaking and terrified to a happy boy. When Carson gets home after his walks, he jumps on the sofa and gives the greatest tail wags you have actually ever seen. All you can hear are the swishing of his delighted tail as it hits the ground.
“His mission in life is to curl up on the sofa with me.” Sounds like Carson has some clear priorities!
