The instinct to protect and care for one’s offspring is universal. However, sometimes there are exceptional cases where animals don’t display this trait. One example of this case is a labrador named Langbo.
Langbo doesn’t like to be around his puppies. He has over a dozen of them. His owners often find him in a secluded area inside the house. Every day they have to force him to go and interact with the little pups.
If Langbo chooses to be in the same room as his puppies, he doesn’t enjoy it. Any puppy approaching him would be met with a snarl or growl. Fortunately, the puppies don’t get tired of approaching him, but they do get scared by his response.
According to the owners, Langbo is actually more tolerant than he was before. He would usually get spooked by his own puppies and run away. At least he’s able to sit in the same room as them.
The owners think Langbo might not have wanted to be a parent. The owners always leave their two labradors separated by a fence. However, one day they saw the same fence torn down, and the dogs were together. There’s no way to find out if Langbo had initiated or if it was the partner.
Sometimes it’s easy to see why Langbo does not like dealing with the puppies. They are rowdy and chaotic. They tend to chew anything and everything they get their mouths on. Of course, this is only natural for growing puppies like them.
The owner teaches small kids in her home for a living, and sometimes the puppies can disrupt the class. Sometimes during a lecture, the puppy gate would collapse, and all the tiny labradors would run into the room. The kids love this scenario, but the owner finds it troublesome.
Eventually, Langbo has to be trained to be more accepting of his puppies. He needs to learn responsible parenthood. Find out more about what happens next in the video linked below.
