It is sad to see any dog in this type of emotional and physical state and though, not the most urgent of situations we have ever seen at BHRR, he is a dog that has been truly broken down….the poor sweet boy. frown frown Very tragic…..

He is about 35+ pounds underweight(he is only 96.92 pounds), has diarrhea, is not yet housebroken and is already integrated with all the dogs but four! 🙂 Even BHRR's Dozer! WTG! BHRR's Dozer! 🙂

He has tons of potential, a really lovely boy and I have all the time in the world for him to have the patience, consistency and structure he needs to flourish and I look forward in posting updates and photos and videos of his rehab. process! I cannot thank those involved enough…..AGAIN for entrusting another to our care/hearts!

Despite how starved he has been, he took the chicken I gave him on the way home very gently and was a wonderful, if slightly quiet co-pilot!

Sean feels strongly about naming him and he has wanted to call him BHRR's Canvas for several reasons and he really is a beautiful canvass that just needs the right 'light' and 'touches' to be a masterpiece to home and community! smile

I am trying to find some cube large tube body pillows to line the sides of the colossal crate as his body is so emaciated. – I have two already:

one is 47" long, 10" height and 12" wide

one is 55" long, 12" height and 14" wide

As of Saturday October 20th, I have set-up a file set-up for him at Kanata Animal Hospital for those that may wish to contribute to his Vet Care:

Kanata Animal Hospital (613) 836-2848 and they will take Visa, M/C and AMEX over the phone under the account of 'Birch Haven Rescue' for 'Canvas'. They will take Debit or Cash in person at 440 Hazeldean Road in Kanata, Ontario
