Lupin was found on the street and a family graciously stepped up to care for him over the summer. Unfortunately they are not in a position to offer Lupin a forever home and have reached.out to us for help.
Notes from the family that found Lupin:
'He came to us very bony with no hair on his back paws. The husband of my oldest daughter's biology teacher saw him and two litter mates wandering the streets for a couple of days. He took them home and the girls went quickly to homes. No one wanted Lupin because he looked so puny. They could not keep him, so we agreed to take him in to try to get him healthy. He gobbled the food down so fast at first, he would throw up. He has now learned that he will be fed daily and will stop eating when he is full.
He has learned to sit, lay down, roll over, and shake hands. My girls have been working on teaching him to pray, but he looks more like he is doing a yoga pose than praying. He prefers not to be in a crate, but he handles it well when we leave or at night. His crate is next to the schnauzers' crate which helps. He is in the puppy chewing stage. He has only destroyed one shoe and a pillow. He cannot have any pillow, blanket, or towel in the crate because he tries to ingest them. He gets along well with our cat as well.
