Dogs can turn ferocious for a variety of reasons. But a Reddit user had an interesting tale as to why her pooch turned aggressive after a visit to the groomers. The unusual story had left the internet in splits.
According to a report in The Mirror, the owner, took her dog named Emma, a German Shepherd/Newfoundland mix, for a grooming session. When she brought the dog home later, she found the dog acting strangely.
“She began to get more aggressive. She bit my hand when I would feed her scraps, or she wanted my attention, and ignored people whom she knew and was acquainted with. This dog bonded to me and ignored my father, brother, and neighbours, and she changed her entire routine with the family,” she explained in the Reddit post.
She attributed it to the dog undergoing stressful situation and assumed it would get back to normal given enough time.
However, the real reason for the aggressive behaviour came to light after 4 months when the groomer called up the owner. It was revealed that there was a mix-up. The dog the Reddit user was caring for was named Bear, who belonged to an elderly couple. Her dog Emma had been mistakenly sent to the elderly couple.
