Some pets just don’t like going to the vet. Maybe they had a bad experience, maybe it’s the way it smells, or maybe it’s all the other pets that bother them. One German shepherd named Enzo recently showed just how much he dislikes the vet.
When he gets in the car, he seems to be a little excited.
Then, he realizes that he’s not sure where he is headed. His excitement changes to anxiety, and he suddenly figures out that he is headed to the vet. When they pull in, he can’t hold back anymore.
Although the German shepherd breed is supposed to be brave, Enzo just can’t shake his fear of the vet. In the video, he can be seen whimpering as one of his owners announces that they have arrived at the vet.
He doesn’t want any part of it and is trying to tell them that he just wants to go home.
According to the AKC:
“German Shepherd Dogs can stand as high as 26 inches at the shoulder and, when viewed in outline, presents a picture of smooth, graceful curves rather than angles. The natural gait is a free-and-easy trot, but GSDs can turn it up a notch or two and reach great speeds. There are many reasons why GSDs stand in the front rank of canine royalty, but experts say their defining attribute is character: loyalty, courage, confidence, the ability to learn commands for many tasks, and the willingness to put their life on the line in defense of loved ones. GSDs will be gentle family pets and steadfast guardians, but, the breed standard says, there’s a “certain aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships.”
Enzo is still a great dog; he just doesn’t like going to the vet.
He is still a loyal protector and a friendly companion. Another German shepherd in a different part of the country proved just how loyal the breed can be. A dog named Captain has been visiting his owner’s grave for six years.
The man’s widow, Veronica Guzman, said:
“We searched for him, but he had vanished. We thought he must have got run over and died. The following Sunday we went to the cemetery, and Damian recognized his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing as if he were crying.”
The family has no idea how the dog found the cemetery or the man’s grave.
They took Captain home, but he still goes to visit his deceased owner on daily basis.
“He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master. During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at six o’clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave, stays there all night.”
The family has given up on trying to bring Captain back.
They know if he is missing from their home that he is at the cemetery.
“I think he’s going to be there until he dies, too. He’s looking after my dad.”
There is no denying that German shepherds are amazing animals.
They are smart and make great companions. Their willingness to learn new things and protect their owners are just a couple of the reasons the breed is used for police dogs and rescue dogs.
Enzo may be a little scared of the vet, but he is likely just as loyal as Captain. If his owners tell him he needs to go inside, he will suck it up and do it. He wants to make them happy, and at the end of the day, he probably knows they have his best interests in mind.
