Atlas, the Former Factory Watchdog

IMG_2866.jpg
For seven years, this Akita dog served as the watchdog for a factory.
Although he was a watchdog, the factory workers took good care of him.
However, with the closure of the factory, there was no one who could take
Atlas.

That is how and why Atlas came to ARK.

Although he looks big and strong on the outside, Atlas is easy to get along
with and friendly. He loves playing with toys, and takes his favorite toys to
the back of the shed for himself. “Hee-hee!”


He loves walks too.
When there’s not enough time and we return on the short course, he
says, “No!” and the staff doesn’t know what to do.
But then there are times when he’s not in the mood and refuses our offer
to take him for a long walk…
Maybe this is just the opposite of the loneliness and longing for companionship that he’s feeling.

He’s already in his senior phase and has weakness in the joints of his hind legs,
but has no other health problems and is still very energetic.


Despite the sudden move to the shelter at this age, he is friendly to everyone.
Living as the factory’s watchdog for seven years, Atlas now lives as ARK’s dog.
It is heartbreaking to think that his life will end at ARK, without having a family of his
own.

If it were you…
Would you want to live alone in a nursing facility?
If it were me, even with a little disability, I would want to live out the rest
of my days with people I love.

Animals cannot make these decisions for themselves.
But they only want one thing.

Dogs are creatures who live for the present, and will express their utmost feelings
of appreciation to those who will be with them now. The important thing is not the
length of time spent together, but the quality.

To those people who worry, “If I don’t raise the dog from when it’s a puppy, then it won’t bond with me and I won’t be able to teach it manners,” I hope to be able to convey my message well.
