Abused Dog Set To Be Put Down Tries To Bite The Hand That Wanted To Save Her

A dog named Chase was stuck with a sadistic scum of a human in the name of an owner. For 3 years, the neglected pooch endured the most unspeakable atrocities hurled by her owner.

Over time, fear became her only companion and she had a mental breakdown that sealed her fate as a broken dog.

Chase was a terrified, shaking mess when she arrived at an LA shelter. No matter what the workers did, her tattered soul remained trapped in the prison created by her past traumas.

She cried and flinched at the sight of humans, and tried biting off every hand that approached to pet her. She wasn’t willing to let humans in again and there was nothing anyone could do to convince her otherwise.

The bitter truth is that severely abused dogs like Chase have no guaranteed chance at rehabilitation.

With newer helpless dogs coming in at the crowded shelter, the heartbroken workers prepared to euthanize Chase and release her from her life of constant mental agony.

But on the day she was scheduled to be put down, a little miracle happened.

An animal rescuer named Eldad entered the shelter just when Chase was waiting for her turn at the euthanization table. Eldad couldn’t help but notice her abuse-induced behavior pattern.

While the workers told him Chase was an unsalvageable case, Eldad decided to approach the dog and tried winning her trust.

In this video, we see Chase cowering in the back of her kennel as Eldad reaches out to her. By default, she bares her teeth and tries to scare him off before he “hurts” her.

After all, that’s what she had learned from her life with her ex-owner. Her only defense mechanism was to bite the hand before it hurt her.

However, Eldad sees through Chase’s defenses and approaches her again. His soothing presence works like a charm and Chase lets him put a leash around her.

After that, she just melts in her savior’s arms as he successfully pulls her off the kill list and whisks her away.

Watch this video till the end to see how Eldad expels the side effects of 3 years worth of abuse in just 3 days! What a miracle worker!

12 Things You’re Doing That Your Dog Hates:

For most people, dogs are not just our pets, they are our family members. When you bring a dog into your life, things just seem to get a lot more exciting. 

There’s few things that are better than coming home after a long day of work and having your beloved furbaby happily greet you at the door.

While we love our pups and they love us back unconditionally, there are a few “annoying habits” that our dogs may not really like.

Here are 12 pet peeves that many dogs have, according to Bright Side:

Hugging- While it’s hard to resist giving our pups a big squeeze, many dogs feel restricted and consider it a controlling act.

Using words more than body language- Of course, dogs can understand a select few words, but we all know that they can’t comprehend every single thing we are saying. Because of this, dogs tend to watch our body language to understand what we are trying to tell them.


Patting their heads– Similar to the hugging, many dogs don’t like when their personal space is invaded. Most would prefer being pet on their back or even scratched behind their ears.

Keeping eye contact– Looking straight into a dog’s eyes without blinking, especially a dog you don’t know, may come across as an act of assertion or dominance. If you’re meeting a new dog for the first time, it’s important not to make strong eye contact right off the bat.


Lacking rules and structure- Since it’s not always easy for dogs and humans to communicate with each other with words, it’s important for them to have rules and structure so that they can feel more comfortable in a routine and have trust in you.

Keeping them on a tight leash- If you hold the leash too tightly, it can make the pup feel stressed or uneasy.

Not letting them explore and smell- The majority of dogs love to see the world around them instead of being cooped up inside all day. They enjoy sniffing around and visiting new places. Keeping them inside and not letting them explore could make them feel depressed or isolated.

Forcing them to interact with dogs/people they don’t like- Putting your dog in an uncomfortable position can end up badly for either them, or for the dog/person that they feel uncomfortable around. Even if your dog is not aggressive, they may act in a defensive manner if they’re forced to be near someone they don’t want to interact with.


Being tense- Pets are very good at sensing our moods and feelings, so if we are tense and stressed, our dogs may start to feel that way too.

Being boring- Dogs are energetic, playful animals and love to have some excitement in their lives. They can feel lonely easily if left home alone all day, so it’s important to show them attention and play with them whenever you get the chance.


Exposing them to strong smells- A dog’s smell is nearly 40 times greater than ours, so certain fragrances like air fresheners or cleaning sprays that may not affect us, could really bother them. Make sure to keep things like this a good distance from them. 

Bathing them- While not all dogs dread bath time, many of them do. Using a slip-resistant mat at the bottom of the tub could help them feel more comfortable. The temperature of the water should be lukewarm, not too hot and not too cold.

Of course, our dogs will love us unconditionally no matter what, but paying attention to the things that bother them could help strengthen the relationship you share with them even more!
