Anyone who has had a puppy knows that the bond between a pet and its owner is unique and incomparable, for those who love furry puppies they are like another child occupying a special place not only in the hearts of their owners but that of the whole family.
The symptoms of canine depression are similar to those experienced by people.
One of the most difficult things is to leave them at home or with a family member or very close friend for travel reasons, this undoubtedly not only worries the owner who does not stop thinking about his beloved hairball, but often transforms the behavior of the puppy.
This is exactly what happened to a woman from Cape Town, South Africa, who had to leave home for a few days due to a business trip.
This is an adorable middle-aged Chow Chow.
The woman left her beloved puppy in the care of her daughter, who of course would give her the same attention as her mother. But surprisingly, the puppy could not bear the absence of his favorite person and became depressed.
The Chow Chow looked like it had gotten sick, it was as if its world had fallen apart. Regarding the young man, he comments:
”The dog lost all vitality since Mom left. I was eating badly and had stopped playing completely. ”
The concerned young woman stresses that she did her best to try to lift his spirits but nothing seemed to work. It wasn’t until it occurred to him to make a video call that it was even more heartbreaking.
The dog, when she saw his mother through the screen, was completely immobile lying on the couch, while his owner spoke to him, the puppy seemed to have become even more depressed.
“His eyes filled with tears and he let out disturbing moans as he tried to tell Mom that he missed her too much.”
The mother from the other side of the screen tries to calm him by assuring him that she will return soon, but the sad little dog only looked at her with his devastated heart while some tears escaped from his tender eyes.
The loss or absence of your favorite person causes changes in the puppy’s behavior.
The woman never expected her puppy to get depressed during her absence, we are sure that when this beloved puppy returns he will be comforted with a lot of love and extra attention.
Without a doubt, puppies feel the emptiness of their owners, as much as they do when their pets are not around. Do not stop pampering them and we continue to be a bridge so that more people can enjoy emotional stories. Share!
