From @matilhando (Brazil) - One of the greatest gifts of our work is to see the result of a rehabilitated dog!
Stephano (pictured in the video) lived in extreme conditions when the @hopet_ asked us for help. He had been raised in a shelter and knew nothing of the world beyond the walls where he lived with his brothers. His sister is the black puppy in video and is still waiting for adoption. She experienced extreme fear. She was not allowed to be touched and ran away from everyone and everything.
I was touched by the video of him cowering on the wall and decided to volunteer so I could help. I remember the way he walked, lanky and jumping, it was all strange to them. They never before had felt anything under their feet except the cement floor where they had lived their entire life. Stephano had not received any care and did not know any human interaction beyond being fed. He saw all humans were a threat.
I remember the incessant desire he had to flee, and in my house mirava doors and windows any loophole to run to disappear. Slowly, very slowly he began to break free of his mental prison, I was bringing out the dog inside him, we walked a lot to find the balance. A routine that began at 4:30 am every day and had no time to finish. A momentary surge in the middle of a morning, he bit me and I had the feeling that the work was lost but we resumed ... At the end of this journey I learned a valuable lesson from him, patience is a respectful way of encouragement and was critical in his case HE STILL HAS HOPE. Yesterday I received the video of him playing indoors, happy, rehabilitated.
I am emotional as I write this.
Thank you, Stephano.
