Abused animals can recover mentally and emotionally

I have a little rescue dog--5 lbs that I took in a few years ago. He was so wounded and so neglected that when you through a toy, he cringed. I thought Zipper would never be normal, but in a couple  of years, he was a normal dog--hey ladies--if Zipper can do it, so can we!
This is a good study--read it.

New study finds abused animals can recover mentally and emotionally - Birmingham science news | "The surprising results were that the majority of goats that had experienced neglect or abuse in the past displayed a higher level of goal seeking for food in a never before seen environment than the goats that had never been neglected or abused.
The researchers conclude that the removal of the stress of neglect and abuse produced a return to normal behavior and may have produced added resilience to the goat's behaviors."

Dr. Irene's Verbal Abuse (Site)!

I just love Dr. Irene's web site on verbal abuse. she has helped so many people. On this page are the stories of a man and woman who came from separate abusive relationships and finally found each other. Dr. Irene doesn't comment but invites readers to--what do you think? It's a good exercise to supplement the online line tutorial
