Abandoned Dogs with PTSD

The dogs that roamed free for over a year are exhibiting the “issues” that you’d probably imagine they have. A study showed that, “The dogs from Fukushima showed significantly lower aggression toward unfamiliar people, trainability and attachment to their caretakers,” Nagasawa and colleagues wrote. “Also, urine cortisol levels in the dogs from Fukushima were 5-10 fold higher than those in abandoned dogs from another area of Japan.” (LA Times – Fukushima dogs)
