This compassionate vet goes to great lengths (including the floor) to befriend a very scared dog

If ever faced with a terror-stricken dog, watch this video for excellent pointers on how to break the ice. Posted on Instagram by veterinarian Dr. Thomas Hamilton, the vet faces a slouched, frozen, nervous dog who has backed itself into a corner. But with his gentle voice, slow movements, bag of treats, patience, and willingness to not only get on all fours but to lie all the way down on the hard floor, the doctor eventually gains the dog's trust — and even the start of a new friendship.
