DERBY -- A Transport from Kentucky to Pennsylvania

Today I took time out to participate in transporting an 8-year-old male Weimaraner from the Louisville Weimaraner Rescue to Tri-State Weimaraner Rescue.  Derby had quite a long day but he was a great traveler, very friendly and a good boy.  He went to a foster home where he will await his introduction to his forever family.

As you'll see from the photos, Derby is grossly overweight and needs to take some pounds off so that he might live a more healthy, active life.  It's sad that people think that over feeding a dog is a way of showing kindness, when it's really just another form of abuse, often causing a dog to suffer from joint problems and a shortened lifespan.

Here's Derby and one of his transporters when he was in Wheeling, West Virginia.
