The behavior of animals is highly dependent on living conditions, which is why the same dog may behave differently in different environments. This is the case of Clementine, which was found by animal welfare organizations in Southern California.
Clementine was placed in a shelter, but she was still depressed and uncommunicative. She suffered from several other illnesses and was considered unfit for adoption by shelter staff. And so, while the other residents of the reuge left one by one to new homes, Clementine remained in her cage.
Clementine was placed on a waiting list to be ordained, but when she was two days away from the month, a miracle happened: a woman decided to take her home.
It was Elizabeth Cossart who noticed a photo of the dog on the shelter’s website. She had no idea why Clementine was in her heart – perhaps because her empty, sad gaze and hunched posture almost made her want to cry. She was determined to own the poor dog at that time.
Elizabeth brought Clementine home and introduced her to her other dogs, Moose and Maple. They immediately sympathized and it was these friends who helped Clementine settle into her new stop.
Then there were the visits to the vet and a long recovery process. However, after seven months, Clementine managed to defeat her mala.
dies and his fears, becoming a happy and affectionate dog who is happy to interact with his masters.
Elisabeth says Clementine now reminds her of an active and curious puppy, ready to play and cuddle all day long. Her look and posture have also changed – it’s hard to recognize the poor little thing who was afraid of everything and had no hope for anything.
Elizabeth and her husband are very happy with Clementine. They treat her with love and affection, and the dog returns the favor.
