Reaction Of A Dog Rescued From The Dog Meat Trade When Getting His First Bed

When 200 other dogs and a three-year-old dog called Harriet were rescued from a dog meat farm in Wonju, South Korea, they had no idea what it was like to have a comfortable place to relax. When they brought Harriet to the shelter, she was quite frightened. Her reaction is completely natural given the difficult circumstances she has faced; on these farms, the dogs are kept in appalling conditions and are crated.

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay’s coordinator, Nash McCutchen, said:

The food was thrown out to make them fat, they were all locked in there without a soft bed, and they were essentially living in their own squalor.

Since the dogs on these farms are frequently tortured and skinned without being dead, it is highly likely that they would have killed Harriet in a cruel manner if she had not been saved.

Thankfully, early this month, the Humane Society International (HSI) saved a number of canines, including Harriet, who was subsequently relocated with 13 other dogs to San Francisco to begin a new and different life. There, she was welcomed by the Humane Society organization of Tampa Bay.

She arrived here for the first time fairly dejected and distant.

Within a week, Harriet started to walk to the front of her cage and gain greater self-assurance.

It was difficult for the group’s members to transport the dog to the playground.

She didn’t know how to walk on a leash, so we had to help her.

McCutchen claimed that even though Harriet appeared to be unsure of what to do ion an open area and remained stationary, the group members chose to continue working with her.

When one of the shelter’s volunteers, Leslie Menichino, decided to bring the puppy to the organization’s headquarters, something unusual occurred.

Lesley stated:

“I held out the blanket for her and left her in the center of the office. After a short while, I noticed that she was nodding off while still upright. I then grabbed my phone and began filming her at that point.
