Seeing Past the Ugly and Aggressive Dog

This is an example of what I call the innate ability to connect with an animal and the wisdom to feel there are fine qualities hiding underneath an ugly and hostile dog.

Individuals who are attuned to and who possess an affinity for dogs, cats, horses, etc. are able to see past an animal’s ugliness and most times defensive aggressive behavior. Dogs and cats use the only defense they know to defend themselves against further abuse. That is the out of control and aggressive behavior that is often displayed when put in a shelter situation or when forced into a corner when fending for themselves out on the streets in a very cruel world.

Next time you are looking for a new pet: dog or cat, please visit a kill shelter and save a life. You will be the recipient of a pet that will become absolutely wonderful and one that will be forever grateful.

Please watch this video It is a gut wrencher.

Hagar has posted numerous videos of rescues and an animal’s recovery on You Tube with photographs on Flickr. Several organizations work with Eldad and Audrey Hagar. A prominent one is Bill Foundation. There are others as well which I’ll add to this post later.

The Heart of an Unusual Man And a Rescue Video

The story of Eldad and Audrey Hagar is one that I have followed for a number of years. I am sorry to say that it had not occurred to me to post any of his videos.

However, I finally had what O. Winfrey calls an “ahha moment” after I was reading and viewing some of Eldad Hagar’s latest rescue photos over on Flickr. It was the “ahha thing” that caused me to think about posting some of his videos. The rescues are transfixing and will maybe cause you to shed a few tears if you have a soft spot and a heart for animals.

I’ve been quite ill for the post three months and today I think I might live a few more years. 🙂 I’ll write a post about what were two culprits causing me to believe I was soon going to bite the dust. I hope that I am not writing this too soon and jinxing my return to my former eccentric and “happy little body” self.

Please click on the video link below. You’ll be glad that you did. I have posted two videos back to back. These are among my favorites.The videos are the embodiment of hope, dedication, compassion and, persistence. These are the sterling qualities of an animal rescuer.
