The Five-Pound Haircut: Shelter dog's makeover next step toward forever home #ALpets
In the small community of Freemansburg, Pennsylvania, an animal cruelty atrocity is calling for the public’s help to bring justice to an abandoned five-pound Shih Tzu found wandering the streets on Tuesday afternoon stuffed with legos. According to the rescue organization, the Shih Tzu was picked up as a stray, and it wasn’t long before shelter staff noticed the extremely matted and dirty pooch was not able to defecate – no matter how hard she tried. Initially the staff thought the dog might have had a tumor or severe matting blocking her rectum.
Five to ten pound dogs will fit this size of shoe. These dogs include but are not limited to: toy dogs, Yorkshire Terriers, Maltese and Pomeranian.

Desperate to find her five-pound mixed-breed dog, she offered $5,000 cash for his return, no questions asked. Still, many fellow dog-lovers and friends -- nearly 900 people have liked the Find Yogi Bob Facebook page -- are merely hoping for a happy ending to this story, and what a story it is.As few as five pounds above the ideal body weight can put your dog at risk for developing some serious medical conditions. Unfortunately, when a dog is overweight or obese it no longer is a question of "if" your dog will develop a condition secondary to the excess weight but "how soon and how serious!" Some of the common disorders associated with excess weight include:Although most small dogs are too heavy for a hawk or owl to actually carry, it’s still possible for large raptors to attack and kill them. A five-pound dog is no bigger than a large rabbit—a hawk might easily attack and carry it away. Of course, a dog this size is also in danger from foxes, coyotes, bears, raccoons, and even other dogs, so it might be wise to let your dog out only when accompanied by you. If hawks present a significant danger because you live on a raptor migration route or have hawks nesting nearby, seriously consider getting a second dog. Hawks are far less likely to attack one dog when another, even one equally small, is nearby.Most dogs will achieve their ideal weight within six to eight months. If the process is taking longer than this, something needs to be changed. A healthy weight loss is between one to five pounds per month based on your dog's size and current condition. Some dogs may need to go slower while others may shed the pounds more quickly.
