Pet Owner’s Despair As Rescue Dog ‘screams’ At Daily Fireworks

Weeks of nightly fireworks display has thrown back a recovering rescue dog, turning it into a nervous wreck, according to its desperate owner.

Jessica Reinold 60 from Great Barr has reached her limits as her dog Grace is terrified of the nightly explosions.

After Diwali, Halloween and bonfire night, Jessica posted on a local Facebook forum and asked how long the displays would last: “They go here every night and my dog ​​is traumatized. She won’t even go out into the garden now unless I’m wearing her and it’s startling to hear how desperate she is. “

The mongrel breed Grace was turned away from Romania in a terrible condition. She even tragically lost a litter of puppies that she had due to malnutrition.

After being raised by her new owners in Birmingham, the little bitch regained her health and confidence.

Mercy on a happy day

But a nightly fireworks display seems to undo Grace’s progress and she “screams” when she hears the explosions.

Jessica said, “The fireworks made her more and more nervous. She starts to gasp, runs from room to room and even screams.

“We had to put her in her bed in a big box and cover her completely to calm her down.

“It’s depressing for you and for me. She now associates the darkness with fireworks and does not go outside. She won’t even eat.

“I had to carry her into the garden so she could go to the bathroom, we even have to use a leash now because she’s afraid of going out at night.”

Grace came from Romania before she was saved by Jessica

Jessica said the fireworks started in mid-October and increased around the bonfire night and is now becoming a daily occurrence.

Her appeal on social media received mixed responses. Some felt the fireworks had lasted too long while others said they were now part of daily life.

The dog owner regularly rescued Great Danes before coming across a picture of Grace on social media.

The mixed breed dog looked so sad that Jessica immediately filed a request for rescue.

Grace, then called Lady, was in such dire condition with a skin condition and almost starved to death that she lost a litter of puppies.

Jessica is now planning to move to a more rural area with her family. She said, “We wanted to move anyway, but now I want to move early because of Grace.

“For example, I have nothing against fireworks for religious festivals or New Year’s Eve, but fireworks shouldn’t be sold to anyone except for celebrations.

“It took Grace a long time to regain her confidence after we saved her, but now her personality has changed completely.

“It all makes me very, very unhappy and angry. It’s cruel. “

The Birmingham City Council website advises that noise pollution laws usually do not apply to fireworks as they are occasionally used for cultural and religious ceremonies.

To be classified as annoying, an annoying noise must be heard regularly or over a long period of time.
