Dogs go crazy too

Donate to help the people helping the animals.

Crazy may not be the clinical term for it, but dogs can also go from being normal, healthy, high functioning dogs to behavioral car wrecks (also not the clinical term). Henry David Thoreau wrote-

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.”

Many dogs refuse to go quietly, barking their discontent until they are silenced with shocks, sprays, and other threats. Others break. The dog in the following video was sent to a ‘sanctuary’ after the hurricanes of 2005. He, along with others, did not get out of the travel cages they were transported in for 5 weeks. That’s 5 weeks stuck in a cage barely big enough to stand up and turn around in. Food and water were inconsistent or nonexistent. I can’t imagine the fear and desperation these dogs experienced. When he was ‘freed’ he had developed this bowl pushing OCD.
