    I only have before pictures because well, I've only had him for a few weeks. But here goes.

    This as the very first day he showed up
    [​IMG]

    This was after neutering, a deep wash, and several ear cleanings

    This was just a few days ago

    And probably my favorite

    And keep a look out for after pictures featuring

    1) Properly groomed coat
    2) Healthy weight

    :D

    You can't be as anxious as me!!! I have been mixing in 100% beef (for dogs) in with his dog food and feeding him 2-3 times/day. His stools have been looking very healthy for the past week and there is a SLIGHT difference in the meat around his midsection.

    Doing the math, with me at 195, that would be like me dropping down to 165. At 6'1" I would probably be as skin and bones as he is. I can't imagine how long it would take for me to lose that much weight and it's so sad every time I think about how long and difficult it must have been for him to lose that much weight.

    Assuming this is what a healthy, meaty setter looks like, I would almost say Ronin is more than 10lbs underweight. :(

    Ok one more

    I think this one really shows his weight the best. No hip bones protruding! And yes, he dug that hole.

    So he might still be a few pounds underweight, but compared to this:

    He looks fantastic -- enough weight to support muscle now, and no bones jutting out through his coat. What a lucky, lucky boy to have found you guys...and from the look of it, you guys are lucky to have him as well :)
