Welcoming Luka to rescue <3 Medical temporary HOLD

Luka is the “poster kid” for rescue .. It’s obvious that he has had a rough go before coming into rescue. He weighs just 42 pounds. His nails are grossly overgrown. His body score is 2/9. He is literally, a bag of bones and fur.

HUGE Shout out to the family that STOPPED and let him in their car (which most likely SAVED HIS LIFE!), our friends at Stockton Animal Shelter and Cara @Underdog railroad for helping this diamond in the rough get to rescue AND to a foster home that said… yes!

Miraculously, his heart is HUGE and he loves people (and food of course). Luka is approximately 2-4 years old and is microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and seems to get a long with large/medium dogs and kitties too. He is heartworm negative and he recently went to the vet for a toenail trim, fecal (which was CLEAR) and overall exam. Luka will need to gain some weight and improve his overall body condition before getting neutered and getting adopted, but we know with a great foster home and some good food, that is just around the corner <3

We are still learning about Luka, but so far we know that he loves to ride in the car, he is housebroken, he goes into an indoor crate (with a treat thrown in) and wants all the loves. He walks on a leash, though not well. He knows sit and loves to rest his paw on you… ah yes, affiliation and trust <3
