    Sooo we have a new little foster dog, an 11 week old pup we've named Mozart. He is worm-ridden, flea-ridden, dirty and nervous but very sweet- and greeted the three hooligans with aplomb.

    I've clipped his nails and given him a worming tablet and I am about to give him a much-needed bath.

    Anyway, here he is- the crate is sparse as we put him in there when the other dogs sniffed him, it's not properly set up for bedtime yet. Usually I'd walk them together before they met, but he has not been outside as far as we can tell and doesn't walk so much as shake on the spot.

    He's not very active and not playful, but I'm hoping without fleas and worms he'll perk up a lot.

    From an unplanned and unsellable litter, quelle surprise!

    Anyway, here's Mozart :001_wub:

    Poor guy, what an awful start in life :( I'm sure you'll give him lots of good memories to hold on to though for the future :)

    It just makes me want to cry, a pup should be happy and bouncy, not scared and trembly :mad:
    I'm glad he's got you :)

    Poor chap, hopefully the parasites are the cause of his behaviour.

    Poor little bugger... can't flea treat him til tomorrow but gave him a bath with teatree shampoo and dog conditioner to help, and used the furminator to try and get rid of as many as possible... and dear me... :( there were a LOT of fleas, and two ticks (better than tons of ticks- but still, puppies should NOT be infested with anything but puppy breath)

    He is now dry and curled up in a soft hooded catbed next to me, and my lovely OH is holding his bowl of food mush for him. Good to see him tucking in and he gave two little wuffs a little while ago so he'll be ok :)
