Ben's story

I assisted in evaluating a dog today for rescue. His name is Ben, he is a two-year-old Saint Bernard. As you can see from the picture he is in pretty bad shape.

Ben is very under weight and his coat is dry and rough, he has drainage coming from both eyes. Ben hasn't met very many people, nor has he been anywhere but a house with a small outside enclosure.

Ben loved his family and was very protective of them. At this point, Ben is very confused because he is suddenly in a new and very different environment.
Tonight he did settle in a little as you can see on a blanket and he ate some dinner. Ben is still pretty unsure though and tomorrow hopefully he can be vetted.

I am excited to see this dog transform into the beautiful dog he should be and find a wonderful family that will keep him forever. It will be a journey for us both and I am so honored to be able to assist Ben along the way to a new life.
