Bullwinkle came to Home for Life after he allegedly bit a child in the face, causing the loss of a tooth for the child. A collie mix, Bullwinkle also was reported to have poor eyesight and separation anxiety.
When he first arrived, we witnessed some of that separation anxiety: he grabbed ahold of the fencing and pulled it nearly apart. He was upset about being confined to his run. Since he has become comfortable at the sanctuary, he recognizes Home for Life as his true home. He realizes that we won't leave him, and that he will be able to get out to run and play often. Since he is in a place where he can see all activity at Home for Life, confirming in his mind that we will always be there, the separation anxiety behaviors have subsided. The biting that was alleged to have occurred? We have seen no evidence of that. Yes, Bullwinkle doesn't see that well, but he knows who is there for him, and he recognizes loving care and his roommate, the one and only Ashley a chow mix from Florida, who was rendered paraplegic as a mere puppy when some cruel person stomped on her, breaking her back, pelvis and both femurs
