We live in a world where pets aren’t always treated the way that they are entitled to. They’re abandoned, ᴍɪsᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴇᴅ, and also some are even made to do ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ things to other animals.
The good news is, this dog, that was ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ from an awful life, discovered a for life home, in spite of his rough past. Anne as well as Vic fulfilled the dog 2 years ago when the Brandywine Valley SPCA asked if there was any way they could promote him after being rescued, together with 11 other pets, from a canine ꜰɪɢʜᴛɪɴɢ ring.
While Jingles was a sweet animal, he had been badly ᴀʙᴜsᴇᴅ; he was way underweight, covered in ᴡᴏᴜɴᴅs, and suffered from severe anxiety. He coped with his sᴛʀᴇss by gnawing at his own paws and tail. By the time he came to live with Anne and Vic, Jingles had chewed on his tail so much, he was in ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀ of ʟᴏsɪɴɢ it.
Because of the pit bull breed’s unfavorable reputation, Anne was hesitant to take Jingles in at first — but once she saw how badly he needed help, she knew she couldn’t leave him in the shelter. Unfortunately, once Jingles came to live with his new family, he was still a bundle of nerves. He continued to chew his tail and exhibit other signs of anxiety, and the Tenaglias knew they had to do something to help him cope.
Anne and also Vic rapidly observed that the pet dog’s whole personality changed when they took him on three-mile strolls each day. He stopped his anxious chewing, his ɪɴᴊᴜʀɪᴇs ʜᴇᴀʟᴇᴅ, and he seemed happier than he had ever before been. “The only thing that would relax him down was strolling. We strolled him 4 or five or 6 times a day,” Anne claimed.
As an added bonus, Vic and Anne started seeing vast improvements in their own health, too. Within a few months of starting Jingles’s walks, they had lost a combined 80 pounds.
For years, Anne had suffered from heart problems like high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, and an irregular heartbeat. She was used to going to the hospital a few times a year to get her heart checked out, but since Jingles came home, she hasn’t had a single episode.
” We conserved his ʟɪꜰᴇ, but we such as to state he conserved ours,” Anne stated. “My muscles are more established, as well as I am not having to take as much pain medication […] It assisted with my weight and helped with my heart.”
Vic has likewise had a decrease in health issue, and he’s now down 60 pounds! All thanks to Jingles. After a year with Jingles, their family officially recognized him as a member of their family.
