Life on the streets can be difficult for a dog with nowhere to dwell in and no humans to feed and nurture. Yet, they can sometimes find solace in the company of other homeless animals. After all, dogs evolved from the wolf, which is a pack animal. They enjoy the company and can profit from it in a variety of ways.
A stray dog was booted out of a parking space in Shijiazhuang, China, by a vehicle. The dog did not react to the maltreatment at the time. She could wait it out with a bit of help from her friends and prepare more effective retaliation.
Later, the dog reappeared, accompanied by two additional canines she had enlisted to show the kicker who is genuinely in charge. After that, all three dogs attacked a parked automobile, causing some noticeable damage.
Passers-by captured photos of three dogs biting and clawing at the vehicle, but the driver was nowhere to be found. He was most likely forced to return to what amounted to astronomically high repair costs. And, as many people on social media pointed out, it’s working out for him.
While this incident does involve dogs acting “violently,” the idea that stray dogs are inherently aggressive is based on a misunderstanding. In this case, it appears that the dog reacted to the maltreatment emotionally and defensively (as one would expect).
Many stray dogs and dogs rescued from the streets engage in “aggressive” behavior. This is primarily a fear response developed as a protection mechanism during a harsh life on the streets. On the other hand, aggression comes in various forms, each with its own set of therapy options.
The most anxious street dog can become the cuddliest companion by recognizing their triggers, being patient with them, and treating them accordingly. Here’s where you can learn more about how to deal with fear aggression in dogs.
