Our sweet Clem, formerly known as one of the Kadiddlehoppers when his brother Carney was with him, has been with us so long that he probably doesn’t remember much before the shelter. The boys came to us when they were about 10 months old. So, Clem is truly a “shelter dog” and comes with some of the quirks and foibles that entails. He has shared kennels with other dogs, but has gradually retreated from even that interaction. He is afraid of everything because he doesn’t understand any of it. When his kennel is opened, he runs out, uses the bathroom and runs right back inside where his world pretty much consists of an igloo house, a water bucket, a kuranda bed, a food bowl, and sometimes, a chew bone. He is so easy to care for that he is easily overlooked by all of us. I always try to remember to call him to me and pat him and talk to him on the days I work, but with so many demands, I don’t always remember. Sometimes, I even forget to shut the gate to his run for a while and when I do remember, I always find him in his house, waiting for me to close him in and shut out all the scary things out in the world. Surely, he deserves more than this life of solitude, fear and incarceration.
Having said all of this, we do not want to give the impression that getting Clem back to a normal dog existence will be easy. It will be very difficult and require someone with infinite patience, who is not easily discouraged when he “acts out” or cowers from fear. On a happy note, his brother Carney, who was very much like Clem, has finally learned how to lead a happy life of leisure with some kind people who have worked with him for quite some time. So, we just hope the same miracle can happen for Clem. I think that person is out there for Clem. I still have hope, because when I leave the shelter for the day and go to Clem’s run, and find him in his house and open the gate and call him to me, he always comes for a kind word, a head pat and a kiss. There is still a “real” dog in there waiting for the right person to reclaim him.
Act quickly to adopt Clem-sponsored. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
