you have got to be joking, poor dog. I don't know if he has just been starved or if he has EPI. He looks like a dog that has not been treated for EPI. I hope your rescue group will be able to get a blood test for him to eliminate or confirm the presence of EPI, and they are in a position to give him replacement enzymes if positive.
If he is positive, I am not familiar with the cheapest replacement enzymes in the US, however I know that I buy a bottle of Creon 10,000 online for around $40.00, has 100 capsules and I feed Harry twice a day, so he gets 2 Creon and with OB training and his 2 meals a day, the bottle will last 3 months - so is $13 a month.
If you are able to, I wonder if it might be a good idea to take some replacement enzymes with you and give him one just before you give him some food? Even if he tests negative for EPI and has been starved, replacement enzymes won't hurt him and it may help him better digest the food and then feeling relaxed and full? I wish I was in the US, near you because I would give you a bottle.
if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
