      @Summer Sorber I’m sorry you have this view of dogs like Chapo! I have had aggressive cruelty case dogs so I totally get where you are coming from, but fortunately Chapo is extremely gentle with everyone he meets. I do take extra precautions with all of my foster dogs regardless of how long they have proven to me they are gentle with kids and other animals. Also, Chapo and Alice had a very slow intro and are never alone without supervision. He will only be adopted out to a home with kids old enough to understand how much space a dog needs to eat and play. I have had extremely aggressive dogs walk through my door, and I’ve also had several dogs like Chapo walk through my door...ones where it would make sense that they were aggressive, but fortunately they weren’t and have lived their life without incident! I’m sure there are plenty of dogs out there that don’t end up in a foster home like mine where the foster parent is extremely careful and slow at intros...and that can end in unfortunate circumstances for all parties involved. Same goes for people that adopt a dog from a shelter without knowing much about them and without knowing that they need to give them 2 weeks of space to decompress before introducing them to children or other animals. And I know there are plenty of instances where a dog has just totally snapped on a small child or other animal that they otherwise seemed to love and adore...I see those stories too often...but that is why it is so important to have an adult in the room to enforce a healthy/safe distance.

    Chaining dogs up should be illegal IMO and so should those choke chains. Shits disgusting. Really goes to show how homeocentric humans can be to allow people to have easy access to better abuse their animals. These are living breathing beings with personalities and feelings. Humans forget that. How would you feel if you were electrocuted, yanked, or chained up?

    My wife and I rescued a pure bred "Schutzhund." Female German Shepherd. Approximately 2 years old. 10 days after feeding her starving body the best food money can buy, she gave us 9 healthy puppies! Exactly 4 months later, my second rescue dog was diagnosed with cancer. Heartbreak is not enough word. But, We came home to the momma and her pups. We thought we rescued Cie-Cie, but she and those HUGE pups, saved US. She sleeps with me and my old cat, now. And, has shown exceptional love for all of us. I don't know what I'd have done without her.

    Do many of you know how many other Chapos are out there? I understand everyone wanting Chapo to stay with Claudia but realize every foster fail potentially lessens the amount of already limited foster volunteers meaning less people to help others like Chapos. Fosters are wonderful because they help animals return to a place where they can trust humans and its that restored trust that ensures when Chapos and others like him find true forever home they will be fine. And once that animal is secure with a new, good family the fosters have room to take in the next Chapo! See the bigger pcture!

    When an animal has been that traumatized and then feel safe enough to open their heart, you can't rehome him. It would traumatize him again, even if it's a different reason for the trauma.

    As someone who has a re-homed traumatized pet avoid these fosters unless you are willing to put in the same effort to help them out of their trauma once again; the change in situation often reopens old wounds. My poor cat was a rescue who spent almost his first year spending his time living in a closet, it was a younger kid who did it because Charlie didn't get along with her dog; apparently hoped they would get used to each other... In his foster situation when he was saved from there when I first met him he was distant but seemed happy; he had other animals to run around with and liked them but was generally wary of people. I was happy to take him in. It took almost a full year after for him to settle back in, he became very violent and even more distant and to this day he has never bonded properly with another animal again. It took months and months of work just for Charlie to let me pet him and he is literally terrified to leave my home; he will start trying to claw at the door to get back in. He is that scared of losing his home again, animals do remember; at least sometimes.

    Adding more trauma by giving him away is the dumbest phucking thing I’ve ever heard. He has become attached to you and sees you as his guardian savior. To give him to another family will crush that bond and send him into deeper depression and prolly distress his already damaged heart from prior ownership. Dogs can only take so much just like humans. Heart ache is real and if you let him go to another family then I’m sorry to say it but you are the dumbest most cruel person I’ve seen on these videos. You didn’t deserve him in the first place if you can make a bond like that and let him go an suffer just with a snap of a finger. He has a family with the cats and other dogs and you. Keep him or live with knowing u destroyed his life yet again by giving him away

These poor traumatized animals learn to feel safe with you and loved by you, and they start to trust you....and become happy...and they love their pet friends too....But then, you suddenly give them away to someone else and they are traumatized again.. They might not respond to the new person the same way..Its terribly sad to me.
