My flatmate and I have just come back from the fruit/meat market down the street and passed a puppy wrapped in a sweater next to a plastic bag of food. We took about 10s to realise he was going to die if we didn't do something, so he's now in our lounge, on a sofa, still in the sweater, with the heat turned up and a bowl of water, a bowl of sweet milky tea and a very small bowl of cooked bacon. He is entirely lethargic and has been starved to skin & bone, but his coat seems fine and he was (sickeningly) washed in some sort of nice shampoo and put out in a laundered sweater, I assume to increase his chances of getting picked up by someone who still has an oz of humanity in them.
We have not made a fuss of him, simply put him somewhere soft and warm and left him alone to eat/drink when he wants to- a couple of soothing words is all and no music or tv on. He is very quiet and watching me all the time. I assume he'll have something when we leave the room. But I need the advice of all you lovely dog-people. There will be somebody in the flat at all times till the 22nd, at which time it really won't be ideal to keep him, but with several hundred children in my school I'm hopeful we can find him a new home before then. What I need to know is where to go from here. There are obviously no Animal Welfare charities in Suzhou. Are there any counter-intuitive measures I should take to ensure his welfare?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
