In “The Dog of Caucomgomoc” by Boardman Hawes, people start to create fake myths about this dog after the death of his master, all of this because of his scary appearance.

His family life was not stable with constant moving, his parents always fighting, his mother suffering with mental illness, his father working and attending school and feelings of neglect after his brother was born; the combination of these issues may have lead him having issues being close to others.
