Now, in a home where food and water is plentiful and even though things are scary, Eeyore requires more than the "time and love" most stable minded rescue dogs require. Eeyore requires consistency and a schedule. With consistent calm actions and words, he has learned that I'm not a threat to him. I may still be scary sometimes, but he is learning there is no need to run and hide based on my every move. It's nice to see his mental state is improving not degrading.
He can now begin to learn what it is like to be a dog; a pet.
