Would anyone want to take in a small dog?  I found him last night.  He's been starved and abused, but hasn't barked once and doesn't bite.  Looks like a mix with some Jack Russell in him.  The owner rode his bike by and said he didn't want him because he ran away.  I'm sure he ran away for food or to escape being beaten.  I named him Rob Zombie because he is more human than the human he ran away from.  I would take him if my place allowed dogs.  Please help.  I'm going to pick him up at 6:30 from a girl's place who took him last night.  She'll be giving me a crate, new collar, leash, bag of food, and shampoo so whoever takes him will get all of that.  I think he needs a vet visit.  His legs, chest, and ears are very red.

You're welcome to stop by anytime. Yesterday he was a bit stand-offish and skiddy .. Today, he seems in much better spirit. We took a mile hike to the pet store and loaded up on some more goodies. I've decided to keep him on a strict diet of homemade food(chicken/beef, white rice, eggs/cottage cheese along with his medications from the vet and additional vitamin supplements i mix in with his meals) until his skin condition clears up. There's a possibility dog food has been contributing to his allergies and skin issues.

We'll take it a day at a time. He's really a great dog. Awesome personality, very nice and loving and seems quite intelligent. 

He's back to nap time after our walk to the pet store today.  

I see some improvement with RZ already .. the color of his skin infections, which looked very raw and painful yesterday, have already toned down and don't stand out as much or look as bad. He has also become very playful, more energenic and seems quite a bit happier. We had ham instead of chicken tonight and a couple small bites of a choc. chip cookie(he needed some guilty pleasures). 

If I could just get him to stop peeing on our front condo walkway as soon as we walk out the door ...

Jon, John & Spencer, you're saints.

Jon, those pics of Rob Zombie (I like saying his full name) sleeping melt me.  I have yet to see him sleep.  I've only seen him eat, drink water, run around like crazy looking for food, run around to people that won't hit him, and the still pics you put up, i.e. in the bathtub.)  Thank you so much.  He looks so at peace.  I just hope he doesn't have nightmares about his past.  I've been missing him all weekend.

My favorite picture thus far.

Reminds me of my Ozzie.

And this pics reminds me of my Caffrey.  She fell asleep watching tv.

He's def. getting sleep now. I've heard him wimper in his sleep to some dreams ... or nightmares. He's a happy pup now. Livin' good. We've grown close in the short time we've spent. He won't leave my side. I won't be letting him to anywhere unless I'm certain it's a great home.

awesome story

i have had 3 rescue animals- they can be great pets.

+1 on the saint comment above

I love this thread so much.  You guys are absolutely amazing.  I'm so glad this dog is in good hands. 

I miss the little guy. Great dog. Unbelievably nice personality. Tegan and I are very happy you took him Jon. Couldn't have gone to a better place. If you decide you want to transition him to another good home let us know and I'll do everything to help. Also let me know if you need some assistance, financial or otherwise, with the vet visit in two weeks.

Thanks!
