Christmas Clyde (FOUND A HOME)

Clyde, a male Landseer, found by a local Long Island shelter, Save-A-Pet, was so weak from malnutrition that he could not stand.  See the pic taken by Save-A-Pet! A vet decided he was too far gone recommending euthanasia. As Clyde was lifted to the table, angels from Sav-a-Pet saw a twinkle in his eye. These angels took him in and turned him over to us!


Ideally, his weight should be 155. Approximately 3 or 4 years old, he’s a big boy…but only weighs 82 pounds and every bone in his emaciated body can be felt!

Hungry and weak, nearly starved to death, Clyde exudes nothing but sweetness and happiness.  He is eating 6 small meals a day and actually trotted around the yard yesterday! 

It will take many vet visits, good nutrition, patience, and time to get Clyde ready for a new home…however whoever adopts him will have the ultimate love of their lives! 

UPDATE!!! Christmas Clyde has put on TEN POUNDS!!!


Our Christmas Clyde has come such along way...the process has been a challenge ... and we still have such a long way to go! He is now over 100 pounds...and is down to 3 normal meals a day ... consisting of a high cartilage diet and home cooking!

His lack of strength and poor structure are related to poor nutrition and probable over crating ...we are looking at therapy and swimming options to increase his strength ... we are so thrilled that he ended up with us, giving us the opportunity to care for him and to give him back the life he so deserves! Clyde is very cooperative and willingly does all that is asked of him...what more could we ask?

Christmas Clyde is doing GREAT! Chris...YOU are amazing!!! Christmas Clyde now has a home and will be leaving on Tuesday....folks that are well versed in caring for medically challenged buddies!!!! Good for you Clyde .... or should I call you NEMO!!!! Thank you Sandy for giving NEMO an amazing home!

Check our Christmas Clyde in his new POOL!
