Portos has been with
us 3 weeks tomorrow. I brought him home from Florida after
he'd survived being kenneled outside for one month and two hurricanes while his owner was away working. When he came to us he was starved, quite ill, injured and infected. These photos taken
10/24/04 show his recovery, but he still has a long way to go.
Notice the loss of
muscle in his hind end. You can still see how his body was affected even after 3 weeks of being fed and supplimented
3 times a day. Portos has the first leg of his Ring III, yet at this time he can hardly chase the ball without getting
extremely tired. These shots are after he's been here for 3 weeks, stuffed with food, played with and loved on
daily. Wow, it’s still painful to see isn’t it?
to Brook Moore for the photo's and slide show of Portos at 3 weeks into his recovery.
Portos sends hugs
and kisses to all his new Belg-L friends and his old friends in Florida.
