Yes he's a mess...but not for long! He still won't let me pick him up, but when he's eating I can work on his mats a bit...he's calmer than when he arrived, traumatized, two days ago. He had an unwelcome vet appointment, got neutered, given antibiotics (his mouth needs attention badly) and got micro-chipped. His saving grace is that he's eating well! And he's responding positively to my touch now! Raises his back end. He's thin and dehydrated (got fluids at the vet; wish I could give him more: maybe in a day or two) he's an older guy, and lord only knows what all he's been through. Jerome!! You're save and loved now! His rescuer has come to visit him... a friend and husband of one of our board members.
Day two: looking a little better! Getting the lay of the land here. Isn't he gorgeous??
