Was Urgent - Being Fed Rice - Now Safe and Full of Good Food

Logan is the senior in Long Island who was being fed rice by the druggie who bought him at the pound. When she decided that she was done waiting for a rescue and he was going back last weekend, I stopped cross posting and started adopting. I had been thinking about having room for a senior dog. I was actually thinking about a pit bull since I just lost mine to cancer, but here came a skinny scared GSD with a face that would melt any heart. He's currently laying behind me working on a old hollow bone I filled with peanut butter.

He's winning over my 4 girls having learned that "yes dear" is THE answer to give to a bitch. He's rail thin, but I'm going to have to be careful about him gaining too much weight. His breeding is poor and his hips are very narrow and rickety. I put him on 1400mg glucosomine/chondroitin twice a day. He goes to the vet on Monday and she will determine our course of action. Meanwhile he's settled in and is a happy boy.

Aww, he looks so peaceful. Don't forget the benefits that natural vitamin C provides...but slow intro so his gut isn't upset from it. Thank you for letting him land so comfortably!

The folks who take in seniors all have HERO status in my book. Thank you so much for helping this needy soul. May your kindness be rewarded ten-fold.

Yours in GSDs and rescue,

Oh I'm no hero for taking in a senior. I prefer seniors. My girls are 14, 8 and two are 6 years old. I love to snuggle pups and then hand them back to their guardians, the same as I like to do with human babies. Give me that laid back, bomb-proof, world-wise personality any time. My goal is no more young dogs. Too many seniors need homes and there is something very satisfying about seeing an old dog sprawled on a comfy bed sleeping peacefully. I'll trade that for puddles on the floor and chewed furniture any day...especially since my furniture is still tattered from the last bored pup I had.
