    Well, the proverbial 'tender loving care' may well do the trick, here.

    The (fantastic) Swedish woman who gives me a weekly back and shoulder massage has a beautiful, engaging and friendly border collie, fantastically well looked after - his coat is magnificent - with a gentle, relaxed, and easy going temperament who always greets me warmly after the massage.

    He was a rescue dog, who, before he was rescued from the animal shelter, had been found hanging from a tree and had been horribly abused.

    Meeting him weekly, given that he is such a gorgeous, relaxed and friendly animal, it is difficult to imagine that he had this trauma in his background.

    How anyone can behave - and choose to behave - with such savage cruelty remains a mystery to me.

    When I heard "dog hanging", my mind went back to a time when one of my parent's tenants' dog jumped over a fence and hung itself to death on its leash. I'm glad this dog is still alive, though angry that someone would do this intentionally.

    Agreed. It is beyond sad how we treat fellow humans and animals sometimes.

    Dog lover here. I just can not believe people can stoop this low without any feelings. I hate to think that they could do this and what else they could do with no remorse.
