"The only reason we keep them in miserable shelters is because of our OWN safety. Wild dogs can attack people and spread disease. That's the ONLY reason."

Not true. Any dog/cat that gets picked up by animal control can be put into a shelter. Household dogs and cats, puppies and kittens: people's pets. Not just wild aggressive animals.

I'd have to disagree with Sarahofborg with regards to the behavior not being evidence of abuse.
I run a large foster home for abandoned/found/abused ferrets, and have had around 10 in my house for the past 5 years. There are distinctive behaviors that betray a history of abuse, and the dog was displaying them.
Dogs who are raised in loving homes very rarely display such a level of fear of new people and situations. Fear defecation is one, as the dog's body tenses up in preparation for fight or flight. The screaming, self evident. The showing of the belly is a submissive gesture, and in this situation is not a display of trust. Shrinking away from touch... the list goes on.
Yes the bulk of my experience is with ferrets, and not dogs, so I'm not an expert, but I've dealt with the aftermath of abuse too many times, and you begin to recognize behavior patterns. I see them here.

"The misconception that shelters are "doggy-jails" or filled with "bad dogs" is something that needs to be changed. They are not better off being "wild dogs" when they can get ran over by cars, starve to death, or get eaten by other wild animals. "

I know they're not bad dogs, it's just the closet analogy I could make. But it's either the dog is miserable in a small cage surrounded by constant chaos and is terrified of everything, or it's miserable living wild because of all the dangers. And they definitely won't starve, dogs are smart enough to know to eat garbage. Many animals get hit by cars, they're going to die eventually anyway. Is it so much worse than euthanasia? Getting eaten by wild animals would actually help control the dog over-population.
The only reason we keep them in miserable shelters is because of our OWN safety. Wild dogs can attack people and spread disease. That's the ONLY reason.

My oldest dog was like this too, when she was in the pound. As soon as I got her home she was happy as a clam though.

FML, there's no reason to believe it's some special abuse. This is what ALL dogs tend to become like when they're in a kennel for long enough. Most dog kennels are hell-holes, trust me. I would rather euthanize a dog than make it live in that kind of place. It's not the kennels fault either, there's only so much they can do with SO many unwanted dogs and limited funds. It's a shame. I often think stray dogs would be better off roaming wild in the streets than in doggy-jail.
