Sad Dog Eats Half Of Food

admin | April 8th, 2019

For a dog named Otavio, life has not been an easy journey. You might not know it from looking at his happy disposition now, but he has experienced a lot of pain and sadness as a younger dog. He has been through so much heartbreak, but his life is so much better now. The little dog was adopted by a woman named Joice Lamas and her husband last year. He was living with a rescue group at the time who rescued him from a horrible situation. The home was abusive and neglectful and Ovtavio and several other dogs were rescued from the home. Otavio had suffered many injuries which eventually healed, but he was still very terrified of humans for some time.

Joice and her husband knew they needed to give little Otavio time to heal and were very patient with him in his journey. He quickly blossomed and the once shy dog who would wince when someone tried to pet him eventually grew to enjoy snuggling. Though he began to heal, there were still noticeable remnants of his past. The most noticeable was around how Otavio ate his food. No matter how much food Joice or her husband gave him, Otavio always ate just half of the bowl. No one really knows why he does this, but it’s believed to be connected to his past abuse.

It’s possible he was only permitted to eat a small amount of food or even that he wanted to leave food for other hungry dogs in the home. Joice always tells him he can eat as much food as he wants, but he still only eats half. Joice hopes that as time goes on he will continue to grow and get better knowing that humans are here to help him and not hurt him ever again.
