A hunter once owned this dog, but he is dead now, somewhere far away
“He never shrank from any savage thing he’d brought to bay in the deep woods; on the scent no other dogs kept up with him.”
Without a master, the dog doesn't get taken care of, because the slaves have no will to work.
Odysseus, while pretending to be an old Beggar, gets told a story by Emumesus about how this dog used to belong to a hunter (Odysseus), but the hunter (Odysseus) died somewhere far away.
Eumaeus rants about how back in the time before Odysseus went to Troy, the dog was swift and strong. He continues with the statement “He never shrank from any savage thing he’d brought to bay in the deep woods; on the scent no other dogs kept up with him.”
I wish to speak with the beggar
Then Emumesus talks about the misery that the dog faced. Since Odysseus left, no one took care of the dog. Not even the slaves, because without a master, the slaves didn't need to work for anything.
After speaking to Odysseus, Emumesus walks into the great hall where he is meeted by the many other suitors. Odysseus, still dressed as an Old beggar, follows him in and is instantly mocked and abused by the other suitors.
Penelope, Odysseus' wife, wishes to speak with the beggar, but Odysseus avoids her until nightfall
