This young boy keeps breaking our hearts over and over again. His name is Oliver. When we first saw him early October, there was simply nothing that we could do apart from make sure he got some of the food. The other dogs just wouldn’t let him eat at all. It’s simply survival of the fittest. Two weeks later we went back again, we could not bear the thought of those that we had left behind, and we were saddened to see him looking even thinner. This time when we watched the dogs being fed, and saw the same thing happen, we knew we couldn’t walk away again and leave him. He really was the most gentle boy, yet another of hundreds of dogs who didn’t belong in a shelter. With Libby in charge, we found a cat crate and were able to take him out and straight to the vet. Where, it appears that we truly had saved him. He had a fatty cyst on his body, that the vet checked over straight away, and operated on at the same time as neutering him. He is still in the vet now with his friends, just for another week or so whilst we find him a nice warm shelter space to live until he finds someone to call him home. (He will have a name soon too we hope. We are so proud of how well this boy has done in just a few short weeks, and so happy for The Lucky Thirteen who we saved just weeks ago. Oliver is around 18 months old (as of November 2017) and he is medium in size.
