Our newest foster dog

July 21, 2011

I’ve posted photos and blurbs about many of our fosters before and wanted to share about our newest guy, Jordan. Jordan is a 10 year old chocolate lab who was surrendered by his former owner because of a move to another city. Jordan is enormous at 130 lbs. My estimates tell me that he needs to lose about 70 lbs. in order to be comfortable and healthy. Jordan came to us from Philadelphia dirty and full of tufts of hair just waiting to come out. After many hours of brushing and bathing, he is handsome and sparkly. Getting him healthy is going to be a challenge, but we’re happy to take it on because we want the best for this guy. He’s surprisingly happy and energetic despite his large size. I’ll be chronicling his weight loss here. When we got him, he weighed 130 lbs. and had a 40 inch tum circumference. Stay tuned for updates.
