Onyx Update: We Have Narrowed Down His Breed (Sort-of)

Big sleepy boy, still recovering from neglect. We suspect he was abused because of the way he cowers when we raise our voice. (Not at him...but at the kids from time to time.)

After some research, and talk with the experts we have come to the conclusion that this guys is a cross between a Plott Hound, and Shepherd. Yay! We know what he is (sort of).

It doesn’t matter what he is, though. We pretty taken with this guy. He is still recovering from the stress of being in a shelter (although he was given impeccable care with lots of love and support), and there are signs of abuse from some monster in his past. It breaks my heart.

Luckily his hair is growing back in the bald patches, and his cough is improving. He takes his heart meds. like a champ. He loves the girls, and sleeps in our room at the foot of our bed.

I will give another update in a week or so, to mark his progress and hopefully to show his continued weight gain as we nurse him back to health with good food, lots of fresh water, rest, antibiotics, and love. 🙂

He is such an amazing dog.
