Hary used to be a stray dog. It’s been a year since the guardian ( her owner) took Harry as a family, yet she hasn’t overcome her trauma from the past… She only sits inside her house and stays still. Having a closer look, we could see traces of abuse on her body. Is there any way to regain trust from her?
Harry used to be a stray dog who wandered around in a small village in China. Harry is curled up in this little house, all scared.. Anytime she sees a person, she’d froze like a stone. Even when her name is called, she’d be scared
Her owner said ” She wouldn’t come out, never, she stays like that in the room all day. She doesn’t do anything but stays in her room curled up in the corner…”
It’s been a year taking Harry as a family yet, Harry still hasn’t opened her mind to the guardian.
The guardian cooked chicken soup. He leaved the food there, and gave her some space, he hope she’d eat some when no one’s around…
A production crew form Kritter Klub ( famous youtube channel in china) went there and tried to help, so they set up a camera and left the scene.
Though there is no one around, she still doesn’t show any reaction
After some time.. She goes towards the food, yet her posture is awkward. Yet, she’s startled by another dog barking and went back to her house. She stayed there for a few hours, even after it turned dark…
The next day… She’s still in her room
Guardian (her owner) said” It’s such a nice day today, so I want to take her out for fresh air… Let’s go out and hang out with friends, Harry, let’s go! This is the only way to get her move”
“It’s difficult to read Harry’s mind What’s happened to her that made her so terrified of people? A year ago, she was spotted on the street looking anxious. It seemed like she’s escaped from somewhere. A year has passed… and the scar still hasn’t healed.”
The production crew took a vet with them and he tried relax her, yet she’s already tense even before the vet touches her.
Vet said “Her heart is beating fast. It seems like she’s calm but she’s very scared, her heart is beating very fast. She can’t even look at me or bark and run away… she’s just holding it in.”
Fortunately, there was no problem with her health. What’s left is to take her out of her room and help her to come out into the world.
Vet said ” This black house is very firm. This gives her comfort mentally, but also it provides a stronger wall from the outside world. I think it’s right to remove this house first” Production crew stepped in to help Harry, too..
Vet said to production crew that moving her by holding her rather than on a leash makes her feel more comfortable. and when they took her outside of the house, she looks very anxious. She was too anxious, she peed herself…
The guardian kept her company always so that Harry wouldn’t feel lonely. She doesn’t get startled when people try to touch her now. She used to flinch when approached by someone. Not anymore.
“I’m going to be here with her whenever I have free time. I’ll be by her side and be her friend. I’ll make her a bright little girl”
Now, Harry can look at the guardian. Now, we see hope.
Harry isolated herself from people due to the painful memory of being abandoned. We don’t know when it will be fully healed, but the guardian is giving her a lot of love and affection. Just like Harry, there are a lot of abandoned dogs living with painful memories, they who once were loved by their family…
We hope there are no more nameless abandoned dogs in the world..
