My lil beagle



I bought my lil beagle from a random guy who didn't take proper care.

He was thrown in the back of a old truck in a crate 6 times his size. He was covered in his own urine and feces and fit in the palm of my hand.

When he looked out from behind his big black ears that covered his face I knew we were meant to be. After a year my lil Lotus was healthy and very happy.

I left to go to work like always and left my lil man in charge of the home. I finished my shift happy to come home and take a walk with my lil man. I got home to find bloody, diarrhea all over the floor but no Lotus.

Finally i find my lil Lotus curled up under my bed shaking. I of course freaked out and started crying. I tried to get him to come out from under the bed but he wouldn't. I am finally able to lift up my bed and pick him up. The poor lil guy was so light and his skin looked like it was just stuck to his bones.I rushed him to the emergency vet wondering what could be wrong, I was so scared that i may have left something out that he got a hold of, it was tearing me up.

We got him there and they took him in did all the normal stuff. After they tell me they will have to take him for the night and that he is very dehydrated I started to get scared.

We returned to find that he has gastroenteritis. It is apparently common for puppies in which i did not know. So he gets better and the vet told us to be careful there was a 15% chance it may happen again.

Thank God it has not happened again, but we have been very careful. He must stay on a blan diet and eat food that is for sensitive stomach. He is now 4 years old and never been better. He has grown into an amazing dog and i couldn't ask for any better. Hope this helps someone
