Feral dogs were known to have an extreme fear of humans. Homer was a feral dog that lived alone for most of his life. Luckily, Rocky was a dog lover that was ready to welcome Homer into his life.
Scared little dog
Homer was found walking around with a leash tied around his neck tightly. His rescuers believed he had been out wandering and trying to survive on his own for months before he was found.
The first time Rocky went over to see Homer, he was very cautious when he tried getting near the dog. Homer was shaking nonstop while hiding under a car.
Rocky was determined to help him get a new family. He wanted to foster him, but he knew that the dog had to trust him first.
During the second visit, Rocky took the dog outside for a short walk. He decided to sit on a patch of grass with the dog next to him. He wanted to see if Homer would let him pet him.
It took about an hour before Homer slowly made his way to Rocky and rested beside him. Rocky thought it was all worth it because Homer was this sweet little dog.
When Homer got to the house, he had no clue what he should do. The dog just stayed in one place and made it his spot.
The next morning, Rocky opened the door to his backyard and tried letting Homer do his business. That moment was all about the dog’s fear, and seeing him interact with Rocky was already a big step.
When Rocky tried telling the dog to go inside, he realized that Homer didn’t know how to use the stairs. He knew that it was because he never encountered them due to his past.
Rocky tried doing his best to be supportive. Homer was still shy and scared of a lot of things, so they just took it slow. Rocky didn’t want to put a lot of pressure on him.
As weeks passed, Homer started going out on his own. He was progressing slowly, but Rocky knew that the dog was determined too.
One morning, Rocky was surprised when he felt something bump him. He turned around and saw Homer’s tail wagging nonstop.
It took the dog two and a half months for him to wag his tail. Homer had this happy look on his face, and Rocky was so proud of him.
Homer overcame his fear and transformed into a brand new dog. Rocky knew Homer was ready to find his new forever family.
