Gaining everyone’s cooperation, especially the dog’s, was important. The dachshund did not think that people were coming to his rescue, but rather that they were threatening his existence. ” Charging down the middle of the street was his defensive response to the perceived danger that stemmed from a high level of fear and anxiety.
