PostSubject: such a shame    Mon 21 Apr 2014, 11:30 am

On my walk today we met buster the animal sanctuary staffie , we saw him last week but this time the walker was abit more socialble so i got chatting to him , i asked if he was ok with other dogs and they werent sure , but he didnt seem aggressive just a tad nervous near wiley and his hackles went up as he got closer , so we didnt allow them to get any closer but he was happy to stand near wiley while i was chatting to the chap , he has scratches on his nose where hes getting agitated in the kennel and has scratced himself and he was so thin he made wiley look fat i guess that is stress , i felt so sorry for him his owners left him there when they split up , he seemed so sad you could tell he was homeless he just didnt have that spark that a well loved for dog has

relationship breakdowns is a common reason for dogs being signed into our rescue. Kennel stress almost always results in weight loss. For instance, my Mizz was on 6 meals a day and still losing weight rapidly which, along with the aggression, was one of the reasons I took her home.

By the way, you did a good thing by recognising Buster hackles (indicating he was unsure) and not getting any closer. This would have helped him build a bit of confidence being around people/dogs who don't force themselves on him or invade his space.

Hope he gets some interest soon!

He was very unsure of my daughter aswell so i told her not to go any closer and let him come to her

Poor lad, been through a few homes already. No wonder he is unsure of himself
