I drove over --and of course fell in love with this guy right away--his tail wagged when he felt us coming towards him, probably the vibration from our footsteps. Alina had already been giving him Advantix and I de-wormed him. Alina and her husband Jay already have a beautiful big poodle male and they don't want to jeopardize his health by introducing this little one into their home until he has a clean bill of health (very well thought). I examined "Julian" and no ticks, no ear mites, nothing but dirt that later his new foster-mom washed.
Tomorrow I am bringing him in for a very thorough examination, so keep your paws crossed for Julian. That's Amore.
Sorry for this gap but my computer broke down. Good news...a new computer.
