Adorable Dog Sprains Tail From Wagging Too Much In Lockdown

Small pooch is overjoyed with the thought of spending 24/7 with his humans that he sprains his tail.

Dog Sprains Tail From Wagging So Much During Quarantine

For the majority of us, the weeks and months we have lived indoors in lockdown have been draining – with the prospect of more in the future taking a toll on our mental wellbeing.

However, for dogs all over the world, their experiences have been the opposite. Yes, indeed, a man’s best friend couldn’t be happy to spend any more time with us.

One sausage dog has enjoyed having his family around a little too much in lockdown, to the point where he has sprained his tail from wagging it too much.

“So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working, so we went to the vet, and the vet said ‘he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it'”

Emma Smith, the owner of Rolo, shared on Twitter.

“He is super happy, and there is movement from side to side, but he is struggling to lift it in the air.”

Emma’s tweet has gone viral, receiving more than 500,00 likes since it was posted last week – Friday 20th of March.

It is actually very common for dogs to get injured by wagging their tails than you may think – it is known as Happy Dog Syndrome.

Rolo has been prescribed pain relief, and his tail wagging will be back on form as soon as it has healed!

So when we are all feeling a little low in these locked down months, let us think of Rolo and how painfully happy he is to be around his humans at this time!
