Rescued Dogs Can’t Stop Smiling

April Livingston | April 17th, 2019

After several neighbors called the local police about the number of dogs living in a home in Hull, England, the RSPCA went in to check. It was believed there were several dogs living in poor conditions and the RSPCA inspector, a woman named Jilly Dickinson, was shocked by what she found. When she entered the home, it was not suitable for dogs. The dogs living inside were very skittish and nervous. The dogs living inside were in a living room that was dirty and smelly—they were all using the bathroom inside. The other half of the dogs were living in an outdoor outbuilding that was in equally terrible condition. There were a total of nine dogs owned by the woman, who seemed very overwhelmed.

The dogs had never really been outside and had not been socialized. So, Jilly offered the woman some advice to help her turn the situation around. They tried working with her to improve the living conditions for the dogs and even gave her free vouchers to get them spayed and neutered. They even offered to visit the home to help coach her through socializing the dogs. Jilly returned a month later to check on the dogs and nothing had changed—in fact, things had gotten worse. Since the dogs were not safe in the home, the RSPCA took all nine of them in to their facility.

The dogs were so unsocialized that they had never been outside or even walked on a leash before. So, many of them had to be carried out to the car so they could be transported. Once they arrived at the RSPCA facility, it was like they knew they were finally safe. The dogs were so happy to be free: they all had tails wagging, gave their rescuers kisses and just kept smiling. The dogs are all safe now and will be ready for loving home soon.
