In 2010, with a mission to help Beagles who are experimented inside laboratories, the Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) came into life. It is an arm of Animal Rescue, Media, and Education (ARME) in the United States. One of the dogs that the organization already helped is Nate, a pure breed Husky.
After the rescue operations of Nate, volunteers from the organization noticed that the pooch had cropped ears, and his tail was docked. These characters are unlikely for a Husky, according to the volunteers.
As it turned out, Nate also came from a notorious animal testing laboratory. Most dogs who came from laboratories experience a psychological problem. Due to this, potential adopters do not take them in because they are an additional burden.
Despite this, the BFP refuses to give up on Nate. They are rehabilitating the dog so that he can recover from the trauma he incurred in the past. The volunteers are confident that the dog will improve in no time.
The volunteers shared that when Nate first arrived at the shelter, the dog showed anxiety attacks. But when he got used to his new environment, the dog flourished and showed his beautiful side.
The volunteers likewise mentioned that they give Nate medication to calm his nerves whenever he had anxiety attacks. Back in the animal shelter, Nate learned how to interact with different animals. Although at first, he found it difficult, the pooch managed to overcome his fears.
From the time he came to the animal shelter, Nate showed significant signs of recovery. The volunteers noticed that Nate is becoming more trusting towards humans and fellow animals. This is in contrast in the past wherein he will go to a corner whenever there are people around.
While the dog is not yet in full recovery, the volunteers know that Nate will survive his ugly past. The volunteers are also currently looking for potential adopters for the pooch.
