I have a 5-year-old Border Collie called Max. He is an amazing dog and is also my emotional support dog. I rescued him roughly a year ago from a very abusive situation. He was kept in a dark stable 24/7 covered with his own filth, beaten and had to fight for his food.
When I first got him it took him a week to start eating and two weeks to stop cowering in the corner, hiding from everyone. It took him about 3 months to learn how to play and the first time he ever saw a ball, he didn't know what to do with it. Some people should be put down!
he has really come a long way but he has some interesting quirks. If he doesn't get all the attention, this is what happens lol
