Great Dane Comforts Foster Brother Struggling With Anxiety

It always amazes me how big a difference a little love can make in someone’s life. This includes animals as well.

Many rescue animals have never known love in their lives. As a result, they are scared and timid animals who seem to have no hope for the future.

But when they are rescued, they can grow to be much more confident and happy – a perfect testament to how much someone’s love can make a difference in their lives. A perfect example of this features a Great Dane named Yeti (formerly Tofu).

She had been warned ahead of time that Yeti was something of a Houdini, as his anxiety meant that he wanted to be around his foster mother at all times. Naturally, when this wasn’t possible, he would end up escaping wherever he was in order to get to her.

Fortunately for Yeti, there was someone about to enter his life that would end up helping him to combat his social anxiety. And that someone happened to be his new canine sister, Zoot.

As footage from an indoor camera showed, Zoot proved to be quite comforting to the skittish Yeti, and this helped him to come out of his shell.

It was this newfound confidence in himself that helped Yeti to start putting on some weight. Eventually, he would get a whole new lease on life, and it was all thanks to a little bit of love in Yeti’s life.
