Nurturing a Malnourished Dog ~ Another stray that came to us
The good news, is that he's up and walking, has been flea combed and treated, had his very long nails trimmed, and is about to go see the vet for overall check up. He's a very loving dog, and is anxious to come inside. A visit to the vet is needed first, as we already have 3 healthy dogs inside.
I am sure the dog warden was looking for him yesterday. After we saw the dog wander around the barn, and disappear, the dog warden's van was driving up and down the highway, and up and down side streets about a mile or less away. He even sat in our driveway for a time, looking directly at our house, but never knocking on the door. I am certain, that if the dog warden had found this dog, he would have put him to sleep.
Thankfully, the dog came to us, and it was us who found him. Now, it's just one day at a time, nourishing him back to health.
