If I was hiding an emaciated dog, I would post front pictures too.

Here is a foster I took in who was an abuse case.

From the front.


From the side, same day, minutes apart.

Poor Dane. He looks as bad as Bullseye.

I think that's generalizing and prejudice to think that because of the way someone uses words, that's an irrefuable indication of what's in their hearts. With my own dogs, since I know their names, I tend to use their names or other pronouns like him, her, he, she. But if I don't know a dog or I'm speaking generally about dogs, I might use the word, "it." Doesn't mean I don't love and respect animals.
So you don't say things like "Its hard to provide it basic care" or "it is not an easy animal to live with" while talking about YOUR dog where you know its name and gender? Never said calling animals it in general means it -- as I used it in my sentence. IMO its completely different. Heck, I tell Ren he's an animal all the time lol

The reason I posted the comparison was for that exact reason, plus to point out that even a super skinny dog looks a lot heavier when they are sitting down and photographed from the front.

As a total aside I miss my scrappy looking coyote dog too. Now she's all cowlicks.

Yeah I think anyone can tell the difference between a lean dog and a really unhealthy dog. Here is Spanky in his youth. He was a VERY thin dog yet his muscle tone was outstanding. This dog had thighs of steel.



and here he is from head on. he didnt look near as trim from head on as from the side.



and of course Bandit back in his buff days.



clearer picture of the coat quality



Bandit was a more acceptable weight. Spanky we tried everything under the sun to fatten that boy up at least a little but his muscle tone and coat never suffered nor did his energy. He was just one skinny puppy.

That Dane breaks my heart and it is a fabulous example of hiding (lack of) weight with photos.

Talking about her other dogs is off topic and counter productive and immature. Quit grasping at straws.

Actually it is the reason I have trouble believing it was her doing, when I look at the pit bulls. Therefore it is relevant.

However, I do agree, I've often thought the sight hound takes it to an unhealthy level of bone. It's possible she (and gonzo) have a perverse opinion of healthy weight. One that a vet and most would likely disagree with. As said, there is muscly lean and there is unhealthfully skinny.

Kerri's whippets can get stupid thin. But with the hair, it's less obvious to see, it's how they feel. Bounce's august allergies are wretched.. and she looses weight and becomes all legs and bones..

I've been feeding her double trying to compensate. Difference is we notice and realize it's unhealthy looking. There is lean.. but often Teal's dogs don't look muscular and lean. Many times more than one has looked simply too thin.
