Fostering rescue dogs is not exactly an easy job to do. Not only do you have to spend money to provide for your foster pooch, but you may also be required to earn the doggo’s trust. Not all rescue pups are quick to trust strangers because many of them have been abused by other humans.
In this viral story, we’ll talk about a poor pupper that is so scared of humans she wouldn’t leave the room that she was in. This foster doggo is Eleanor, the Golden Retriever.
This adorable cutie had been rescued from a breeder who did artificial insemination on her. The video below clearly shows Eleanor’s entire body shaking because of her dark past.
The pup’s foster mom, Jill, shared that Eleanor became terrified of wide-open spaces. So the foster pooch prefers to just sit in one corner of the smallest room in her house. Jill tried every trick in the book to gain the doggo’s trust, but Eleanor was just terrified of everything.
Whenever they had to go somewhere, the foster mom had to carry her pooch because Eleanor just refused to walk. During their car rides, the pupper’s body would shake because she was terrified. This just breaks our hearts because dogs are supposed to enjoy car rides!
Jill was starting to lose hope, but one day, she discovered the key to Eleanor’s heart. The foster mom gave the pupper a pink stuffed animal, and for some reason, the Golden Retriever became attached to the pink toy. Jill explained that the doggo treats that special toy as if it was her puppy, which is a bit sad given that she had given birth to so many puppies, but she wasn’t able to keep any of them.
Now because of this stuffed animal, Eleanor started opening up to Jill, and she even started running around the house like a normal doggo! We hope that the fur baby will find her forever home soon because she deserves to be happy after all she has been through.
