An adopted dog was terrified of everyone and everything
Dogs are among the world’s most devoted creatures. The love they receive in return, however, is not always equal.
Meet Hedgie, a dog who was raised in a broken family. He was ignored for the majority of his puppyhood while being tethered to a pole.
As a result, he experienced a trauma that made him extremely apprehensive and afraid.
He continued to feel anxious even after being adopted by a kind family.
He still frequently had to hide behind tables in his new house. The family’s kid, Mason, was the only person who could assist him and whom the dog eventually chose to respect.
Mason understood that the only way he could help the dog was to forge a close relationship with him. He made the decision to take the simple route and allow Hedgie to share his bed.
And it succeeded!
Hedgie changed after spending a few nights in close proximity with the couple. He stopped keeping his distance from everybody, and he and Mason grew close.
He soon started experiencing health issues.
The family decided to transport him to the doctor because he wasn’t able to eat. Megaesophagus was determined to exist in the dog.
This particular esophageal enlargement makes it difficult to eat. The veterinarians recommended euthanasia or critical care under close supervision.
Naturally, the family opposed euthanasia. The family spent all of their leisure time caring for Hedgie despite the difficulties.
Fortunately, Hedgie is now in capable care and will live a long life with a loving family.
