Dogs’ separation anxiety destroys the couch. As pandemic restrictions lift and people begin returning to the office, many dogs find adjusting to the new norm challenging. And among all these dogs, this pup named Bo is probably the most unhappy about the change in his fur mom’s schedule. Moreover, he is not afraid to express how he feels about it.
Two years prior, Bo’s mom, Vickie Richards Shelton, found him a stray when he was only a one-month-old puppy. As an animal lover, she couldn’t help but feel pity toward the pup. There was no way she’d left him behind.
And now, the pup has grown attached to Vickie, as well as to his fur sisters and brothers. The former stray dog enjoys playing and snuggling. Bo plays well with other dogs; however, he’s a lot more energetic than his playmates. So, his fur siblings get tired quicker than him.
As his fur mom began going back to the office to work, Bo started showing signs of separation anxiety. When Vickie leaves the house, she puts her fur babies in separate rooms to ensure that they wouldn’t perform any mischief. And not long ago, she assigned Bo to their living room. However, the pup decided to show his mom how he feels. Upon returning home, Vickie found the living room covered in fluff. It turned out that the anxious pooch ripped apart the couch. And he ensured not to miss an inch of it.
The fur mom cleaned up his pup’s mess and ended up with about four garbage bags full of the stuffings of the couch. It took her a few hours to clean the living room. And as for Bo, he only sat down in the middle of the room, looking proud of his handiwork.
According to Vickie, Bo had ripped up some toys before. However, she didn’t expect that he would rip the couch. And the behavior didn’t end with the sofa; he also destroyed his crate. Concerned with Bo, the fur mom took him to the vet to ensure that he didn’t hurt his mouth or any other part of his body while chewing out the crate.
To help with the pup’s anxiety, the vet prescribed medications for him. Hopefully, his destructive behavior would finally end so they could live in peace and without destruction.
