    No, Jasper hasn't shrunk in the wash, this is my friend's dog Eddie!

    [​IMG]

    Just like her previous most recent addition, he was absolutely definitely not staying, she was just going to foster him for a few days. Yeah, right... He came from - I can't remember now, Romania or Bulgaria - and he'd lived all his life on a short chain:( He has an OCD/neurological spinning behaviour which he's on medication for and it's greatly improved. One theory is that he used to spin when rats used to attack his rear end ad he couldn't escape:( But he's a delightful little chap and I just love his punk hairstyle:D

    My friend also has a Rommie rescue who is so traumatised she can't get a collar on him so he can't be walked - he's on doggy Prozac. She also has an elderly spaniel/lab cross who is gradually heading downhill and is on a lot of different medications, so knows she'll have to make a difficult decision for him fairly soon. And she has another young Rommie rescue who is actually pretty well adjusted (after a lot of work!). She also has a tiny house and a tiny income, so I'm quite in awe of her. Push comes to shove, her dogs will always get the food and drugs they need before she does:)

    Wow, your friend sounds amazing. I will never get my head around how some people treat animals, I’m just so glad there are good people that will step in and help.

    Aww he is absolutely adorable- his hairstyle is amazing!

    How dogs can still be trusting of humans after the awful things they can do is beyond me!

    Your friend sounds like a great lady. We need more of her everywhere

    does he get daily exercise? because when a dog doesn't they become OCD and spin, it could also be the rats.
    Great to hear he's improved.

    Yes, he's walked every day, a couple of times, and is much better than he was when he first arrived.

    It occurred to me today that one reason she's ended up keeping the latest couple of dogs is because the rescues have agreed to pay all vet's bills, she gets them all the vet care and treatment they need, and then they complain at the size of the bills, or don't believe the dogs need medication. And of course there's no way she won't give them the treatment her vet thinks they need.

    Okay, i was just wondering. Wow, a lot of people would not have paid for vets bills... but that's life.
