The dog and his toy are always together
The recent rescue of 4,000 beagles from the scientific organization Envigo stunned the entire world.
The dogs can now be real dogs and enjoy life because they are safe and accustomed to their new lifestyles.
Dory was one of the 128 canines rescued from Envigo’s breeding facility and transported to a rescue facility for additional rehabilitation. Dory had only ever known life as a mother, and she was literally being used as a breeding womb for puppies.
Amy Adams, Dory’s foster mother, said, “At age 3, from a facility that used her to deliver puppies, Dory doesn’t really know how to ‘dog’.” She is concentrating on caring for the infants. I can’t wait for the day when she can resume being a normal, playful girl and household friend after she is released from that position.
Her owners are making an effort to teach Dory how to be a dog while she adjusts to a new life in her foster family. Dory’s new family member gave her some cuddly toys to play with, and right away she fell head over heels for a green plush alligator toy and wouldn’t let go.
As soon as it was time to eat, Dory brought her alligator companion along and tried to enjoy her meal without setting it down. She then began bringing her new fluffy friend everywhere.
Since Dory had never previously had a dog toy, she was perplexed as to why she couldn’t eat and play with her toy at the same time. Although she is still learning, the process has fortunately been very simple, and her foster family enjoys seeing her progressively come out of her shell.
Adams described her as a “lovely, snug, quiet girl but so lively and full of life.” Her tail is constantly wagging.
As she settles into her new life, Dory is still fixated on her toy alligator and can’t wait to play with even more toys.
While Dory isn’t quite ready for adoption, the rescue already has a long list of people who are eager to take one of the Envigo beagles home once she is. She will soon be able to unwind in her new home and spend the rest of her days playing and simply being a dog.
She’s such a nice, compassionate youngster, Adams remarked. I wish she could find someone to play with and spend the day with.
