Christopher Robin was safe at the shelter, still very frail and frightened, when it was decided that a quiet foster home rather than a busy shelter was probably a better place for the initial phases of his recovery. This pup was going to need round-the-clock hugs, and luckily, my family of huggers was an approved animal foster family. We brought Christopher Robin to my house, which was about to be full of tenderhearted suckers arriving for a holiday feast. It was there that I'd launch my diabolical plan to keep Christopher Robin in my extended family. I knew that my sweet friends and family would be fighting over who was going to give Christopher Robin his forever home - and indeed that is exactly what happened!
Christopher Robin suffered horribly from the barbaric removal of his ears, and throughout his life there will be times where he will be unfairly judged because of how he looks. People may assume that he is an aggressive fighter, as dogfighters cut off (crop) dogs' ears to make them less vulnerable in a fight. Other dogs may view stiff, immobile ear nubs as an indication of impending aggression, so these dogs can be at greater risk of being attacked.
