The wife and I decided that the time was right for us to get a dog.We opted for a whippet cross which we found advertised on the Internet.When we went to see him we were astounded by how skinny and under nourished he looked, so much so that we would have bought him anyway just to get him out of the situation he was in. He stands 18-19 inches tall at the shoulder but weights just 8 pounds. We have given him flea treatment last night before bed and some worming treatment this morning with his breakfast. He really is a wonderful little chap who is fairly obedient and clean in the house and we have named him HARLEY. It is going to take us quite a while to get Harley back into the condition and weight that he should be but we will do our best for him. Here are a few photos (Far from being technically perfect which show just how skinny and undernourished he is at the moment. Edit: I am struggling to understand how someone can let a young dog get into such poor condition.
