Ok so been meaning to do this for a while. Around 3 months ago we got Alfie from his previous owners.
Here are some pics we took on the day we brought him home (before) and some I took today (now).

Before, he was too skinny Sad

Kathy, can you believe he had filled out a bit from the previous week when we first saw him!! You could see every stringy muscle fibre under the skin. Sad She said she had wormed him and he started to put bit on, if that was the case, why on earth didn't she do it before he got that bad?! He was Asda tinned food there.

Thank you Hayley. We couldn't wait to get him out of there. Lets just say they were quite proudly telling us how their 4yr old son would ride him like a horse! We did a lot of biting our tongues because we wanted him.

Well I saw him on a rescue site, but he was still with his owners. They had advertised him "Free to good home" and the rescue site saw the ad and explained the dangers of the dog being used for baiting etc. They said they would home check prospective owners. They charged us a fee, don't think owners got any of it. Not bad considering they never even met him! Lol. Not that it mattered, we were expecting to pay for a dog anyway

Really I'm surprised they did that with a young child in the home rescues usually go so far over the top about bull breeds and children! So glad he's with you now Smile

I know, but I think because he lived with a child from a pup, when the child was 2yrs-4yrs. Saying that they said he was good with other dogs and ignores them, nope, quite the opposite. He is such a lovely boy though. Smile

Hope shes ok.
He is our first staff. We had a rescue dog before. No one really had much idea what breed/s she was  Laughing We got her when she was 4yrs old (she was handed in to centre due to work commiments and no time for her) and lost her just before she turned 17! Due to us having our daughter we didn't have a dog for 4yrs! Last year I was getting desperate for one and finally persuaded hubby to start looking Smile
I must admit he has thrown up different issues, and I do feel useless at times. His pulling is still bad, he still anxious when out and DA. But I have to remind myself of the situation he left and I know I much better that them!

Ahh I love those mixed breed dogs Smile So he's been a bit of a shock then!! Don't feel useless!! You're managing him perfectly and it's only been a few months, in rescue dog behaviour we generally say they settle between the 3-6 month point, so he's got a little while to go yet! Biscuit settled on day one, she just decided it was her home  Laughing But i've only really see her calm in the last 6 months, so I can now finally walk her to heel without the halti and her not pulling like a train! I think she's between 5-7 now so age probably is a factor too. I'm sure he'll relax more, and you'll be so much closer with him having had to work through this all! But I think you're doing a wonderful job with him Smile
