I can imagine what you’re thinking as you gaze into Flint’s pleading eyes and look with horror upon his skeletal frame and yes, he truly is a pitiful sight. Neglect and cruelty may have defined the life he knew but Flint’s not about to let his past define him and behind that emaciated exterior beats the brave and righteous heart of a Lion. Until he arrived at our door the world had almost given up on him, but Flint certainly hasn’t give up on us and his gentle and unassuming charms make it so easy to fall in love. He’s just as eager to go for a walk as any other dog and though his pace is a little slower and his stair climbing a little wobblier, he comes when called, takes care of business and seems interested in meeting other dogs we pass along the way. I can hold him, pet him and rub his butt with no complaints and when he lifts his somber eyes to meet mine I can’t help but plant a kiss right in the middle of his bony forehead. While his energy levels are low, Flint’s appetite is (naturally) huge and he grabs treat after treat as fast as I can produce them. He spends much of his ‘free time’ sniffing and searching for things to eat and if I could I would give him the biggest, tastiest bowl of food I could muster but of course, only frequent small meals are allowed until he gains back some of that much needed weight. Flint’s body may be weak but his spirit is strong in all the ways that count and with time, courage and lots of TLC I hope he’ll be given the chance to become the gorgeous, carefree dog he deserves to be.
