For the 12 months prior to arriving at JFD Bowie’s time was spent between two places.
He was either locked in a dark cupboard under the stairs for days on end, until he was yanked out, beaten with a stick (for soiling his space) then thrown out onto the garden where he was forced to spend endless hours no matter the weather!!
We wonder then, what must have been going through his mind when each night before ‘lights out’ we would enter his kennel, move his bed back too the warm spot and fold his blankets back into his bed? Not fearful, no cowering, not backing off. Just a gentle nuzzle of appreciation. How quick are these dogs to learn to trust a human being again and embrace the slightest show of affection?
