4/12/12:  UPDATE ON M.D.

Its been 3 months since I first posted a picture of MD to our blog.
He had lived his entire life outside, pretty much alone, 
and received just the bare minimum of care.....just enough to keep him alive.

As luck would have it, Pam and David, a couple that adopted an ASD from us,
happened to live nearby.  They wanted to meet MD and see if they could 
bring him home.
Well, it wasnt easy but Pam and David were able to load MD up and
take him home.
MD is not overly fond of their Anatolian, Spenser,  but 
Pam & David have learned the fine art of dog rotation and MD 
is living the good life now.  He gets to be in the house when he wants to, plus he has love 
and attention, not to mention good food and medical care.

The vet did some xrays on MD and said he had been hit by a car at some point.
It does not appear that he received any medical care to help him heal.
He was also shot and his front leg had been broken.
Again, no medical care.  But MD is a survivor and he has pulled through.
I think he must have known that Pam & David would be there someday to pull 
him out of the horrible place he had been stuck in for so long.

A lot of people have asked me whatever happened to MD
so I wanted to post this happy tails update ......

This is a picture of MD and his mom, Pam
I love how he has his paw on her.
You can be sure he's not going to let her go!

Thank you to Pam & David for being MD's Rescue Angels.

This is MD. 
He's been a faithful companion to his owner for 9 years.
He's lived outside all these years and never complained
or asked for more.
His coat is matted so badly that he's going to need to be shaved down.
Under all that hair are his ribs with no fat on them.
His owner has provided only the most minimal care for this boy
and, now that he is 9 years old, has decided its time for him to go.

Pyrenees rescue has been bringing food to him
but they dont have any open foster homes.
We are trying to find a warm place for MD to curl up
on a cushy dog bed and have enough food in his tummy
to quiet the empty rumbling.
