When he was finally able to be lifted and pull out of his crate, he sat frozen on the ground just staring out into space. He is actually smaller than was originally thought. He shows the scars of neglect. One eye had a little bit of puss coming from it and his ears were scabbed from some infestation of some sort. He was given a moment to sit and enjoy some fresh air and then he was put into another crate for his final journey to safety and rehabilitation.
When a bowl of fresh wet dog food mixed with dry kibble was set in front of him, he sniffed (which is a good sign) but turned away and laid his head back down. After more attempts, he got the will to eat and has finished two bowls of food.
