Thank you all for the responses.
He is doing very well. I managed to get his vet records from 2011 and he hadn't been since. My vet initially thought something was going to be wrong with him due to his weight and refusal to eat food. I had them do blood tests and stool samples. My vet was almost shocked that nothing was flagged on the blood test as without of range and that he had no worms or parasites. We both figured that might be why he was so underweight. Someone at some point has spent time with him because his behavior and temperament is perfect. I'm starting to think he just eventually got neglected and they could afford to feed him or something. He's great with kids and most other breeds unless they really challenge him and start to act up.
The old vet records released to me have the previous owners names and I'm tempted to contact them to get more history on him but I think that might be a bad idea. He was signed over and registered to me so I'm not worried about them trying to get him back. I don't think I really have anything nice to say to them as a 3rd party helped me rescue them I've never had contact with them but I'm still interested in his past.
He's been a best friend and has changed my life around. No idea how the stars aligned to make this happen but it did

|David Taggart||Your story is a balsam for many a heart. Dogs treated poorly eagerly change their owners if new conditions and treatment are incomparably better than previous. More than that, seems, many rescue dogs start to love their new owners more than anything else on earth, what they wouldn't have shown otherwise. Probably, because they had opportunity to compare and they know they can lose the one they love. Many males, especially sterilyzed, loose their interest in life and fall in depression if their owners don't provide enough of exercise and attention. Finally they stop eating. Maybe, it was the case. Pity, he cannot tell you what it means for him - to go for a drive with you, to be the next on the seat, breath fresh mountain air, explore those rocks together, and experience your love every day!|
