Bob, as his rescuers named him, was found languishing in a broken, rusty cage that had been locked shut for years. A tumour was growing out of his neck, and Animal Protection got the owner to relinquish him into their care. A vet performed the surgery to remove the growth from the old dog’s neck, but he was still confined to small cages.
A kind lady learned of Bob’s plight and asked ACT if we could help, because Bob was now aggressive but still deserving of space, freedom, greenery, care, and healthy food in his golden years.
We just gave him his first bath, haircut, nail trim, and massage. It was a bit of a battle, but Bob stopped trying to bite once he learned that being shampooed feels gooooood.
He’s running around our yard now and tomorrow will be introduced to life at The ARK, our beautiful rescue kennels and gardens.
We have experience helping cancer dogs live way past their prognosis, thanks mostly to diet and key supplements, so we’re hopeful Bob has a few years still to enjoy his new home.
Thank you to everyone who donates to Animal Care Trust—we love that we can help Bob and other animals in need of a second chance.

Sea dogs of Taiwan. There are a lot of stray dogs in SE Asia. Generally, it is a sad picture. Dogs around Kaohsiung is a different story. We saw people feeding them. Their fur is glossy and healthy. They look and behave as they own a place in good way - friendly and self assured. These two were sunbathing on the beach watching surfers

A lazy Saturday and not by choice... sick of the rain and mum and dad doing brunch without me 🙄
Having a dog in your life can be really rewarding!
BUT it can also be a curse if you have dog(s) that won’t listen to your commands, hyper, behave badly, keep destroying things that aren’t theirs and worse, bite!
And when one or more of those behaviour occurred, people usually try to get rid of their dogs instead of fixing it!
Don’t give up on them!
Ian was a very difficult dog when he was a young puppy. He destroys everything within his reach, he plays and then eats his poop and he bites! Hard! But lucky for me, I didn’t give up on him! I seek help from @k9klan.dogtraining and learn a lot of things from them.
Now Ian is a very sweet boy. Now he doesn’t have any aggression problem, never destroy things that arent his, he’s getting better with his recall, and he listens to my commands more!
So don’t give up on your dog if you feel overwhelmed.
Train them! Be calm and assertive, consistent and get a really good treat that they love!
If you can’t handle your dog by yourself, seek for help! Get a certified trainer that’s willing to train YOU! Not your dog!
When you succeed in training your dog, you will be rewarded with a companion that will love you unconditionally for the rest of his life!
