Happy Tails: Dino
Dino was brought to the Santa Barbara Humane Society in March 2014 by his owner who couldn’t keep him anymore.
But he was not thriving, despite how much we loved him, and we needed to get him into a home. No fosters were able to take him home, and we were getting desperate.
Then the stars aligned when a man looking for a dog came to the shelter. Tyler and Dino hit it off immediately. The moment Tyler presented Dino with a squeak toy, the two became inseparable. Now Dino spends his days with Tyler, and they could not be happier.
Dino is loving his new home! Thanks to all the staff at Santa Barbara Humane Society.
Dino was brought to the Santa Barbara Humane Society in March 2014 by his owner who couldn’t keep him anymore. Dino is a sensitive dog who had severe separation anxiety, was afraid of loud noises, and would repeatedly injure himself trying to escape from his kennel.
But over time he began to bond with the staff, and his personality started to shine: He loves squeak toys and spending time with people, and he has a goofy sense of humor — he even greeted everyone who came into the shelter office. To help Dino feel more comfortable in his shelter home, we let him hang out in the office, clinic, and administration areas as much as possible during the workday; we also built him a special kennel door that wouldn’t hurt him when he scratched it out of fear.
