Attached are his surrender picture from the shelter and one when I picked him up from the vet. Thank you all for the help. I am just glad to know this group is here to ask questions to.
OMG...my heart hurts for this poor fellow. People frustrate me. How do you let a dog's condition get this ba before doing something???? Its a good thing you are experienced with fosters. Perhaps in his home there were other male dogs and he had to fend for himself...who knows. I would give him time. Keep them separated for now. Let Sirus have his time to adjust and gain some weight. Let him and you other dog see eachother from a distance. Perhaps over time that will help. Thank you for fostering him : )
