Poor boy

You've done a nice job with him. He looks so much better!

I did notice something going on with his back legs, but you did a fantastic job bringing him back to a healthy weight! What a handsome boy, and I'm sure he makes a fantastic pet

He's stunning! You've done an amazing job with him. That's really fantastic. I love before and after pictures. I'm in shock at what a difference you've made so fast!

Great job. He looks so much happier now.

Why was he like that? Was it like a neglect case?

well he was gelded and turned straight out to grass. when his previous owner went to check on him (3months later), he was in that state. mainly down to red worm infestation and really really bad teeth so he struggled to eat
