Picked up this poor soul today. If anyone needs attention it is this boy. According to his microchip, he originated in Ohio, somehow was found as a stray in TX, microchip owner didn't want him, picked up by someone who didn't take care of him and then surrendered to rescue. He is about 2-3 years old, very thin even after gaining 10lbs in rescue. He has a skin condition which apparently has improved somewhat. To me, he looks like a perfect example of back-yard breeding. Such a shame. He is a sweet boy and we will do the very best we can for him. I will be making a vet appointment for him ASAP. His face reminds me very much of Monty but he is much smaller and about 20lbs lighter.

That is a such a sad, sad story! How can anyone just dump their dog! But now he has hit the jackpot and will be well taken care of and have the wonderful life he deserves!

Yes that is a horrible story. But hey, he’s got you guys now. He’ll bounce back in no time. Just on time too. Man he’s thin. You might want to give him some raw liver with his meals if it’s kibbles. He definitely needs to build up that gut. I think you like Orijen correct? He might do better on that since it’s high in calories till he gets his proper weight. Just a thought n keep us posted on the progress ❤️ What’s his name?

Thanks, Helene. I will get some liver for him. I feed Zignature so will add extras to boost the calories. I am trying to find out what the rescue was feeding him and how much. It was not a bulldog rescue, and they didn't know much about the breed. The lady who we met for the meet and greet certainly didn't but they were taking care of him and that is the main thing.
He is a lap dog for sure.
His name is Bob!

This story will have a very happy ending. I think you will be surprised at how good he looks in 3-4 months time.
Many Thanks for rescuing this guy!!!

As you know start slow n build up slowly since you don’t know his diet. At least he did gain 10lbs which is a good sign. Liver will boost his mineral intake which he definitely needs. You got this, don’t worry. You’re what Bob needs………a great bully momma ❤️

We took Bob to the vet yesterday. Lord knows where those 10lbs are that the rescue said he gained! In fact, from the vet records I just received, he lost 4lbs. He weighs 44lbs. He needs entropion and nares widened but cannot have any surgery until he has gained weight. His head looks much too big for his body!
He is settling in well. He and our other dog just kind of ignore each other. The cat will take more time. They are separated by a gate and Bob is interested but not overly so.

@1Chumly……..

Well there goes the 10lb, .definitely good idea to wait for surgery. 44lb isn’t too bad, Bob will gain steadily if you keep rich organs going. He’ll be fine. Can’t wait to see photos n updates of his new adventures.

Too sweet! he is a suckler:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:
Yes, he is!
I think it also helps him breathe a little better. He seems to breathe in through his mouth and forcefully exhale out his nose and with the stuffy, his mouth is kind of propped open. The vet said his nares are almost completely closed. He needs to get that weight on so he can have his surgery!
