Nobody knows who did this to him, nor why they did it.According to his rescuers, it was probably his owners themselves, provoked by a sudden rageathis yapping...Or maybe an intruder who wanted to get into the house and had to silencethe guard dog.
A life of wandering the streets of Cairo
Luckily, the poor dog managed to survive the torture and escaped from his home.Anubis spent the next years of his life wandering the streets of Cairo, looking for scraps of food and sleeping under cars.
In February 2016, Anubis arrived in El Paso, Texas, to be welcomed in by the Declet family.It really was love at first sight. Kathy Declet, her husband and their two daughtersall fell completely in love withthe adorable dog. All the love and affection that he had been missing from his life, he now had in abundance.
The problem isthat Anubis is avery protective and dominant dog, and doesn't get along with their other dogs.The family explains it in a Facebook post:
The news this week is sad. Unfortunately, Anubis is up for adoption. The biggest issue we have is his interactions with my other two male dogs, both of which are much larger. I don't know if he feels intimidated or if he has had a bad experience, but they do not get along. We have to keep them segregated in different parts of the house in order to keep the peace. If they make eye contact, typically Anubis will growl at them, and my dogs just don't like it.
However, the family makes it clear that Anubis is a perfect angel with the children and cats in the house, who he loves to play with.The message continues:
With all that said, please understand we have researched and tried everything we could think of to help his assimilation. I think the environment is just too stressful for him. It's really breaking our heart to come to this decision, but we believe he deserves to live his years out somewhere he can be happy 24/7.
