If you are a dog lover, then there are probably few things that can melt your heart faster than the sight of a bonded canine duo. Dogs often bond intensely with the other pooches around, even deeper if they’ve spent their entire lives together. Separation isn’t at all easy.
At least we can attest to this, how hard it can be for our children whenever we move away. But again, life happens. And several different factors can lead to a pair of dogs living together being separated.
When two dogs have spent a very long time together, they often develop extremely strong attachments or bonds to each other. It’s like a team. Splitting them up can be extremely stressful to them. And that was the case of Abby and Otto (a bonded pair).
Since bonded pairs who have been together, for the most part, aren’t used to the concept of independent life, rather tend to feel helpless without the comfort and stability of their companions. They thrive on the others’ company for different reasons, including adapting to unfamiliar scenarios with humans and other dogs.
Here is an intriguing story of these two pups, Otto and Abby, brought into the shelter, when the inevitable happened. They were put into kennels on opposite ends of the room. Otto the Shepherd was adopted right away while Abby was not. They were heartbroken but at long last, Abby was adopted, too.
Something amazing happened months later that will leave you in tears. The dogs were finally reunited!
