Squeaky was surrendered to our rescue several days ago by a senior citizen woman who said she had no more time to take care of him. Squeaky has been with us for four days and seems distant and lost. I don’t think this has anything to do with him being surrendered, as the photos I received of him prior to being surrendered showed a lost and unhappy dog. He is currently way overweight, very timid around other dogs, and becomes very skittish when approached. When we are able to finally hold him, pet him, etc, he becomes more relaxed, but he reverts back in a few hours and the process is started over again.
Hopefully we can get him to break out of his shell soon, but however long it takes, we’ll be here for the little chunk.
