Beowulf was a pup we rescued at 14 weeks old. He was abused, beaten and starved from the time he was purchased until he came into my life. When I first met him, he ran over to me, rolled onto his back submissively and peed all over his own belly. He did this many times those first few days. I took care of him like a newborn child, helping him feel safe and teaching him that not all humans are bad. The original owners wanted him to become their aggressive junkyard dog to guard their business, but their methods had the reverse effect and Beowulf would just hide and not come out at all. I'm glad I got him at a young age to start giving him as much love as possible.

But yeah, those first pics up until the prairie ones clearly show how scared and sad he was. He slowly came out of his shell, but even today any sudden sound or movement grabs his attention and makes him obviously uncomfortable. He's very skittish, and cannot go for walks on a leash because all he wants to do is return home as soon as possible to the point that he will freeze and not budge. Poor guy. I've always said that I feel he thinks I'm taking him away from our house to return him back to that junkyard and drop him off with those terrible people who bought him originally. Who buys dogs to beat them? I just don't understand humanity.

Beowulf knows I'm his guardian angel and will never leave his side until his last breath.

The fact that he survived such hardship early on in his life is why I gave him his full name, Sir Beowulf the Brave, somewhat knighting him with majestic royalty for his trials and tribulations, and also paying tribute to Monty Python and the Holy Grail (at least that's what his name reminds me of).

Oh thank goodness he got you! How awful for that sweet pup having such a rotten start. He is absolutely beautiful. People like you really warm my heart.

He has a sadness in his eyes,
But I bet a heart of love for you and your family.

My last wolfdog was a rescue, he had been beaten and abused from puppyhood by the boyfriend of the girl who had him, again the jerk thought he would make him a "macho" wolf. The girl's mother took him out of there and posted him online in a wolfdog forum, and I got him when he was 18 mos. old. He was 30 in. tall, nearly all legs, and when I took him out of his crate at the freight office after his 10-hour flight, the first thing he did was gently rise on his hind legs, put his front feet on my shoulders, and wash my whole face with his tongue. He fit right in at home with another wolfdog and a GSD, but it took a good 6 months before he stopped cringing when someone would raise their arms for any reason. It was rewarding to watch him blossom with confidence in time, and he realized he was HOME and safe. He slept on my bed from the day he arrived until his death.

Oh my, he is irresistible! My wolf-mix (so they said) was white like Beowulf. She was my first dog, as an adult. I have huge soft spot for them. You are an angel for taking such good care of him.
