My name is Mowgli and here is my Adoptober story.
The day I was found in the street
I think one day I must have been naughty because I suddenly found myself in the back of a van in a cage.
It was scary in the van and I couldn’t see where I was going, all I could hear where voices saying something along the lines of the pound….which sounded even more scary than the van.
Soon after I was taken from the van and met a nice lady who put me on a lead and walked me to what I now know to be a kennel.
I was then given some food which I ate quickly and tried to go to sleep.
I was only a pup and this was not nice, I didn’t know where my humans where and I also didn’t know if these new humans were going to mistreat me.
I hated my kennel and every day I became more miserable.
After two months of humans stopping or just walking past my kennel I heard a human say…look at him he’s not happy, but like all the others she carried on past.
I had even lost my voice at this point because I had been shouting at everyone who walked passed my kennel.But then one of the other humans came to take me out, I got excited because I thought I was leaving the kennel. Click To Tweet
Meeting my new mum
While we were walking I spotted the human who said I looked miserable, so I thought I have one chance at this so here goes, as she walked passed me I pushed my nose at her hand and I got all the love I had ever wanted.
She said goodbye and I am sure I saw the same sadness in her eyes as mine as she walked off.
A day later and I was sadder than ever when one of the humans opened the kennel and put a lead on me…as we walked off I started to panic where were they taking me? But imagine my surprise when the human from the previous day took hold of my lead, I was that excited I peed on her.
I heard other humans talking about a trial and cats, so I was thinking, oh ok let’s go with the flow, so off I went with trepidation.I was very good as soon as I got to my new home I sat down and gave my new mum a paw, she loved it and gave me a lovely treat. Click To Tweet
The next day I was loaded back into the car and taken back to the kennels, I was really scared now, I thought no way they can’t take me back there.
But sure enough, they had to drag me towards the door I really didn’t want to go back, but they got me in, there was lots of talking and I was given a treat, I didn’t pee this time though 🙂
The lady from the kennels then changed my collar and stuck something behind my ears, which stung a bit, but I later found out this would get me back to my new mum if I got lost, so all was good.
The human I had now decided was my mum still had hold of my lead and we were walking back out of there with my new collar on.
Settling into my new home
I had no training and other than giving paw I didn’t know any dog etiquette at all I pulled on my lead, I lunged at other dogs, people, bikes, cars, buses in fact everything.
Mum was black and blue from me jumping up at her and I cut my Grandma quite badly on her arm pulling her to play.
Mum invested time and money and I met a human called a behaviourist who said I was just an excited puppy that needed to be taught to calm down.
With hard work and patience and support from a number of other humans I was starting to turn into a well behaved loving, loyal friend to all, I don’t like drugs though, I can smell them you know, mum says I could be a drug dog, If I smell them, I stand over them and won’t let them move, mum says that’s a good thing though as it makes her feel safe and all of the locals reprobates are scared of me…hehe if only they knew eh….
My happy story
Anyway bye for now, mum knows that training me is a continual process and I have to be managed and brought back into line every now and again.
Mine is a happy story and for that, I am truly thankful, my new mum had lots of patience and understood that I was only a baby who hadn’t been taught anything at all.
I know she would never hit me, she feeds me yummy food and now she struggles to walk very far I have a lovely dog walker called Jo.
Which all makes me one spoilt pup.
