Every dog has the right to roam freely. Canines are naturally curious animals who are happiest when they are out and about using their extraordinary noses to investigate. A dog may get disheartened or even aggressive if their normal senses are restricted. A real-life example of this is a dog by the name of Alex.
When it comes to canines, aggression is typically blamed on the dog itself rather than possible outside causes. Do you assume that a dog yapping at you is a cruel dog with a terrible temperament, or do you believe that the dog picked up this behavior due to how it was handled and trained?
The German Shepherd called Alex is shown in the video below being chained to a fence for his whole life. Steve Markwell, a wildlife hero who collaborated with the Humane Society to save Alex, tells Alex’s tale in a video.
The Humane Society asked Markwell, who oversees the Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Washington, for help in securing a dog that had spent the most of his life on a chain.
Alex’s owner was the only person who could get in touch with him anymore. Markwell consented to help and went to meet the dog.
As he tried to get Alex the chain, Markwell was quite patient with him. Uncertain of what was going on, the poor dog continued to bark. But eventually Markwell managed to get Alex onto a carrier.
The dog was then loaded into the vehicle. Markwell saw that Alex had quieted down as they were traveling since he was no longer bound by his chain.
