Papi is doing good, Skinny as all **** but good

Hey guys, Papi came home yesterday we signed the papers and such saying we understood the risk. he is doing great. He lost another at least 5 if not 10 lbs since we last saw him at the shelter. we give him lots of food though and try to beef up his diet with extra protiens to help make him healthier. I took him for a walk today and almost everyone who didn't stop to talk and ask about him was giving me dirty looks because of how skinny he was. poor thing is all skin and bones. you can see EVERYTHING spine, ribs, leg bones, everything.

We have to repotty train him because he has forgotten and already had 3 accidents. but we're working on him slowly but surely. he is a smart dog he catches onto things quickly.

If anyone has any ideas on things hat would be good for him to eat to give him some good weight addition anny recomendations are welcome.

The other dogs are the rest of my pack. the bigger black dog is spencer, the little hot dog is winni and the white and tan fluff ball is Scamp

here are some pics:

You should call your vet and see if there are any supplements that are recommended.

Puppy food has extra nutrients and fats in it that can help a dog recover from weight loss. You should stay in contact with a vet though. There could be an underlying problem such as worms that is causing the weight loss. Keep a close eye on him and make sure he is eating, drinking, urinating, and having bowel movements regularly. If you have trouble choosing a puppy food you can ask the vet (or a shelter may be able to recommend something).

Oh my grandma's dog got depressed and started losing weight so the vet told her to feed him Chicken and Rice. It worked so good! Hope it helps.
