Hey there,

We went to the vet yesterday. Everything is good with him apart from a very very bad ear infection in both ears We bought the medicated cleaning product from the vet as well as the gel to put in after cleaning the ears and have to clean his ears everyday for the next 2 weeks. He got all his shots done and is due in 3 weeks for his boosters. He is definitely underweight and needs to fatten up. He has an appointment in 2 weeks for a check up on his ears and weight. We also started him on his deworming and his monthly Trifexis.
I'm happy he is healthy.. what a relief

He is 42 lbs. The vet says he is going to be a big boy. His paws are GIGANTIC and he is sooo fluffy (probably to keep warm from the cold)

He has not peed in his crate except once with the excitement little leak on monday - this is good. However when I take him out to do his business he wont do it. I guess he doesn't understand that it's his time to do it when he's outside. No big deal.. he will learn in time

Elle and him love each other and they sure keep each other tired hahah

Thnks for all your help, i really appreciate it

When you take him out to go to the bathroom, do you take him out on leash? I have had some older fosters, who do not know "how" to go to the bathroom on a leash, and as soon as you take them off-leash they have no problems going.

Thank you again, for saving this beautiful baby. I am glad the vet found him basically healthy.

He's beautiful. It is so wonderful that you drove all that distance & rescued him. I can never understand when people behave in such a heartless way. But thankfully he now has food in his tummy, warm shelter & people who care. I am sure he must be bewildered over the fast change in his circumstances, & he is obviously trying hard to please & be the dog you want him to be. It sounds as if he is a smart boy & will learn quickly. Looking forward to reading updates.

Fantastic news! Think if you just give him a chance he may turn out to be a wonderful boy. Hopefully you can see you can keep him or home him with people who would love and care for him deeply. Goldens need love and lots of it.

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.

I know, he is really a wonderful boy and tries really hard to please us. He now sits and wait for his food which is HUGE compared to the first day I fed him and he tried to steal the bag of food as he was eating from my hand

Me happy
