Sidney was found in an alley in Illinois chained to a fence. He is only about 25 lbs and was “bait” for any larger dog. We have always wondered if that was the idea. We unchained him and got him groomed. No one ever showed any interest in him. He went blind when he was 3. He knew our house and yard. So, we kept him. About 6 months ago, he would not get up on “his” bed or “our” couch” and was crying all the time. When we took him to our veterinarian, he was diagnosed with hip displaysia. We have put him on a weight loss program and some anti-inflammatory drugs. He is back to his usually crabby self. We post Sidney because not all critters are perfect but we adjust because we love them – That is RESCUE.
