A rescued dog so traumatized it can only stare at wall makes comeback

WATCH: A dog who was too nervous to even look at humans has now made a comeback.


A rescued dog that was once so traumatized that she could only sit in the corner and stare at a wall has now made a comeback. A new video posted this week shows her happily howling with another hound.

The new video is an update to a video posted by PAWS Animal Rescue in Ireland last July showing Cara sadly sitting in her kennel refusing to look at caring workers, despite several attempts to comfort her.

A vet confirmed that the sighthound was incredibly nervous, rather than suffering from any medical condition. Rescuers feared that Cara suffered years of abuse.

But on Jan. 30, the shelter posted another video of the happy canine having a “conversation” with another hound.

Cara has been placed in a foster home and has made some incredible improvements, the shelter said. A dog that was once so traumatized isn’t such a nervous pooch anymore.
