The Lonely Shelter Dog Is Desperate For Love And Wants To Hold Hands With Everyone She Meets

Dogs are known for being affectionate creatures and forming strong bonds with their human companions. However, some dogs have been through ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀᴛɪᴄ experiences that can affect their behavior and emotional well-being. One such behavior is the tendency for rescued abandoned dogs always to want to hold people’s hands.

Now, while waiting for a permanent home at an animal hospital, she can’t resist extending her paw through her cage to hold hands with anyone passing by. Suzette Hall, the founder of Logan’s Legacy dog rescue, rescued Eden when she found her living under a tree in Southern California, though the cause of her homelessness is unknown. Despite being fed by visitors, no one had come to rescue her, so Hall wasted no time taking her home as soon as she learned of her plight. Eden’s spirits lifted the moment she spotted Hall.

“For weeks and weeks, she was under that tree,” Hall told The Dodo. “She wouldn’t leave but know it was her time to stop living under the tree.”

Upon bringing Eden to the vet, Hall and her team gave her a much-needed bath to the pup. It was when they discovered that she was sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇʟʏ underweight and suffering from a ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟ sᴋɪɴ condition.

Over time, Eden’s personality emerged, and the veterinary team transferred her to a private kennel where she could rest and recover. Initially, Eden spent most of her time curled up in her bed. But one day, a hospital staff member passed her kennel and noticed a solitary grey and white paw through the bars.

“She is the sweetest dog you could ever meet,” the woman said. “She’s just a lover.” Eden had always possessed a gentle spirit, evident from how she greeted Good Samaritans with a subtle tail wag when she was a stray dog sleeping under a tree, and they stopped by to offer her food.

Since then, Eden has been extending her paw to anyone who walks by her kennel, receiving many friendly handshakes during her stay at the veterinary hospital. However, despite her outgoing nature, the affectionate pup has yet to find her perfect match. She struggles to feel comfortable around other dogs due to having to fend for herself on the streets for an extended period.

“She just wants to hold our hand,” Hall said. “She’ll hold your hand and then make the sweetest howl ever as if she’s saying, ‘I love you.'”

“She deserves it more than anybody a home.”

“Everyone falls in love with her. She’s just a cuddler and a total sweetheart.”

Though searching for a suitable family is taking longer than anticipated, Hall remains confident that Eden will capture the hearts of the right family. The behavior of a rescued ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ dog always wanting to hold people’s hands can be a sign of past ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀ or anxiety. Still, it can also be a way for the dog to seek physical comfort and attention. It is essential to approach these dogs with patience and understanding and to provide them with the necessary care and training to help them adjust to their new surroundings and build trust with their human companions.
