Handsome ️ foster boy Ryder has had some pretty amazing 🏼 breakthroughs in the last 2 weeks...he has been in foster with me personally since May 21st.
He came to Rescue4All as a extremely fearful dog with major trust issues in regards to humans.
It was obvious that he had been man handled, mistreated, and harshly corrected. He was anxious, insecure, and anticipating force to be used on him.
My only goal was to give him time, allow him to be able to decompress and allow him to be able to experience that none of those things were going to happen here.
He was in a safe place where he was never again going to experience what he had in his past.
Almost 3 months later he has finally made that mental adjustment and just in the last week he has shown me his true self.
It has taken time for him to build his confidence enough to where he wasn’t inhibited by an old story of abuse.
It has taken time for him to be able to learn that not all humans suck.
It has taken time for him to be able to see and experience day in and day out that no one was going to hurt him.
Ryder is hilarious 🤣, he is happy, he is very mentally and emotionally “soft” who had been treated badly.
He just needs time to learn, see, and experience humans from a different (ones who are good, kind, and fair) vantage point & get into a healthy, confident, secure mindset.
We are well on our way!!! Good boy RyRy ️ #rescue4all #rescue4life #rescuedog #elderbull #pittie #pitbull #mix #mutt #wecantdowhatwedowithoutyou #fosteringsaveslives #spokanedogs #happydog #changeyourmindchangeyourlife #notallhumanssuck - 5 hours ago
