APBT sick after abandoned in room
I recently rescued an APBT who was abandoned and neglected for about a month in a small bedroom. I think he was abused before that, but not terribly so. (He's not scarred physically, and doesn't seem fearful when I raise my hand or reach for him etc.) He was a little timid with me at first, but then latched on to me and became like my shadow. I found him a home with a young couple who adored him and were familiar with the breed. He did OK for a day or 2 and now they say he is acting as if he is depressed. He barely eats, isolates himself and seems agitated when the other dogs come around him. They tell me he has a puss type substance coming from his eyes and pees a lot. The room he was kept in was filthy with his feces and urine. We almost had to replace the subfloor because of all the urine and the amonia odor. My gf did some research and it looks like his symptoms might be because of the amonia in the room where he was kept, but I can't seem to find much on this. I am looking for advice on how to help him. He is a sweetheart and I promised him I would find him people who deserved him. I named him Henry Rollins because I met HR at WM the same day I met him.
Thank you all so very much. This forum has a huge amount of info and looks like a great resource for dog owners.
