When the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged the globe, there was an increase in dog adoptions. Numerous people who work from home chose to adopt dogs so they could have companions at home. However, now that countries are gradually recovering from the onslaught of the pandemic, many individuals have gone back to their old lifestyles and that made the adopted dogs suffer from having to be left all alone once more.
Colby, a two-year-old Labrador, was one of these dogs. As soon as the COVID-19 restrictions were released, he began to feel the changes and that did not make him happy.
When Colby was adopted in the midst of the pandemic, he may have believed that his life would significantly improve. However, his heartless family abandoned him in the Arizona desert. He didn’t even have a collar or a microchip.
The dog was discovered by Southwest Oasis Labrador Rescue, who chose to take him in. The animal charity made every effort to identify Colby’s human family. However, it became apparent to them that the dog had been abandoned on purpose.
The Labrador suffered from extreme anxiety. However, the dog remained nice and friendly. But the staff believed that Colby’s anxiety may make it difficult for him to find a new family.
Colby is currently living with a foster family. However, he is not yet ready for adoption. The Southwest Oasis Labrador Rescue wants to ensure that the dog’s nervousness and anxiety are under control before they deem him ready for adoption.
Colby is still young and still has many opportunities to find a new, loving home. He is a playful dog who needs regular exercise and a family who would love to play with him. He enjoys swimming, walking long distances, and playing fetch.
Here’s a simple reminder: if you’re considering adopting a dog, keep in mind that it’s a lifetime commitment. Be the person that your precious dog needs you to be.
