Angus (formerly ‘Troubles’) originally found himself at Stanislaus County Animal Shelter in January, 2019. He was healthy and in good shape, and luckily he was also microchipped, so he was reunited with his owners. Six months later, Angus once again found himself at the shelter, only this time his owners didn’t come to claim him, and he was in bad shape: his right leg is non-functioning, his spine is out of whack, and he has scars all over his body. Though we’ll never know exactly what happened to Angus in the six months between leaving the shelter and coming back, it definitely wasn’t good.
In spite of everything, Angus is a sweetheart! His body may be broken, but his spirit isn’t; he still trusts people, and isn’t reactive to other dogs in non-stressful settings. He is working through some separation anxiety, which isn’t surprising given what little we know of his history, and will have his medical needs assessed and addressed before going to a forever home. In general, he just wants to be touched, hugged, scratched, and loved. His resilience is astounding!
