Habagat's Story

Habagat was rescued by The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). He has come to retire at our sanctuary for senior and special needs animals. 

Habagat’s previous owner had been dead for several days before the neighbors noticed a smell coming from the house. They realized that a dog that was left alone and starving, so after the owner’s remains were retrieved, PAWS rescuers came to the site to get Habagat and admit him to the shelter.

Growing old without getting socialized caused him to be deeply mistrustful of humans. Because of that, he spent more than 2 years in quarantine at the PAWS shelter, never graduating to the dog run or becoming eligible for adoption. While he was capable of showing and receiving affection to a VERY select few, he was unpredictable and can be aggressive if mishandled.

Although we are not qualified dog trainers or behavior experts, we believed that Habagat can live out the rest of his days in a sanctuary setting where he has more freedom and more opportunities to interact with humans. True enough, he has shown remarkable progress since he came to live us more than a month ago. He’s turning out to be quite a sweet boy!
