I give the little dog a bath this morning and then took him to the vet. He weighs 24 pounds, about half of what he should weigh. The good news is that with the exception of being extremely malnourished, he doesn’t appear to have a skin problem. Those round spots are something well on their way to healing. Despite being so thin, he is a picky eater. So far chicken and cottage cheese he likes. Dog food, not so much. So the goal is to fatten him up.  The vet thought he might be a greyhound cross. I thought as much when watching him walk from behind. His back legs have the light-footedness of greyhound. Again, he is curled up on the couch, completely under a blanket. Safe and warm.
