A dog rescued from a puppy mill in Georgia was seen sleeping standing up because he had never learned to lie down.
Jordan the poodle, 2, was caught on camera with his head bowed and rocking from side to side next to an unused dog bed by Melissa Lentz, who had recently adopted the dog. Lentz believes that Jordanhad never learned to lie down to sleep. She realized that the “hell hole conditions” he’d grown up in meant he had always been forced to stand and didn’t know what a bed was for. She tried to reassure Jordan he was safe and encouraged him to lay down in the bed. The dog has since settled in and uses the bed daily.
