I must be some sort of dog magnet. First Bailey, our senior daschund mix, then Connor, our VERY expensive Luxating Patella/Wobblers puppy, and now this poor, beautiful dear.
I was walking Connor yesterday when he followed us home, and I just couldn't turn him down. He is Pit Bull Terrier and is extremely emanciated to the point where I honestly don't know how he's standing. Pictures don't do justice. I can see every bone in his body. Rib cage, tail head, spine, shoulder blades, hips... everything. He has thick callouses on all of his legs and belly from laying down, leading me to believe that he's been thin for a very long time. He also has a typical 'pit bull' belt collar on, but it literally hangs off of him. He's obviously lost a lot of weight since having it put on. He's 25 pounds, I weighed him today. I think he should be atleast 50.
I don't know his age but he appears to be fairly young. VERY sweet and submissive around others dogs so far, just slightly timid. I can't find any shelters that are willing to take him except for the Humane Association, and they'll only give him 1-2 weeks before PTS. He's so sweet and has obviously been through hell...I can't bear the thought of him being put down because of his breed.
Please guys, put him on your facebooks. Tell your co workers, tell your relatives. If you know ANYONE in Texas that might be interested, let me know. I would take him in myself but Connor's therapy and vet bills already have me struggling. I simply cannot take him . He is not neutered.
We're calling him Robbie and he desperately needs your prayers.
Pictured with another stray that he has been running around with. Also thin but not critical
