Push & Pull

image

This is Bella. She is a foster dog looking for a loving home. When I met Bella she immediately claimed me as hers. Like most IGs, she seems to be a one person dog. I’ve been helping care for her all week. One day, I had a lot to do and was away from home a long time. She seemed fine when I returned. But soon after, she lashed out and bit me and my friend.
After talking to the vet, seems this is a typical reaction from fear of abandonment. It made me wonder, do we do this to each other? I know I have in the past. It’s a dangerous dance of push and pull.
