Wild at heart

A few people have been asking about the five Border Collie puppies that came into Toronto Animal Services a few months ago. They were feral due to owner neglect when they were brought in and exhibited varying degrees of extreme anxiety when in contact with people.

Four of the puppies have since been rehabilitated and homed but a fifth one, the shyest one, never made it out of its shell intact. It remained "wild" and after biting its very experienced rescue foster parent several times and severely injuring another dog, it was euthanized.

I'm sorry to hear that. Glad the other ones got a chance, but saddened to hear this little one couldn't be reached.
