All in the Family
Heidi Rontu


Shiba Inu

We adopted Apollo from a friend who had rescued him from the wild a few years earlier. She has three Jack Russell Terriers and, although Apollo did not fight with them, they were so high strung that he had become very timid. He also had been entirely fed on table scraps, so he developed quite a weight problem. We've helped him to slim down a bit, especially after last year's bout with pancreatitis, but it's an ongoing battle because he snubs dog food unless he's starving. Apollo is not the sharpest tool in the shed, but sweet as can be. He's out-lived most of his timidity, and has become a part of our family.

So glad you opened your heart to let Apollo in, I would be timid too, living with three Jack Russels! Lots of hugs to Apollo from Michigan!

Apollo is about 24" tall at the shoulders, and has slimmed down to about 50 lbs and was wonderfully active until last week, when he ate something off the ground while he was out playing. He had diarrhea and vomitting for two days, and then developed greater problems. After the initial gastric problems stopped and we had him back on rice and chicken broth, he developed some nuerological problems (possibly had a stroke) and has been going downhill since. We are going to the doctor today to discuss helping him to not suffer anymore. Very sad :-(
