This is a lesson for I&I...
The dog in question, as I mentioned, after increasing symptoms and severity, had been sentenced to execution, but ran out of the yard before anyone was able to capture him.
He returned a few days ago, in perfect health and with his friendly attitude restored.
The dog did not have rabies, which is an incurable neurological virus, but he was about to be killed because his sickness was similar in appearance.
Possibly he heard and Overstood the talks about his death sentence, and decided to seek a safer place to recover from his illness. At least he didnt hold it against us, because he returned and is a great and happy little companion once again.
To answer John's question,
We feed him raw meat, primarily cow or goat, along with some scraps from our own Ital meals, he will eat shuro and injera or some other cooked veggies occationally. He actually LOVES the seeds and juice of raw tomatoes, so I give that to him as a treat.
As a plant based eater, it was a big decision whether or not to bring meat into I&I gates, but ultimately that was a choice that was made before bringing the dog home. I&I wouldnt try to feed a dog strictly vegan food, especially because those stray chickens flying into I&I yard have no chance, the dog gets them and breaks their necks in 30 seconds flat, so the dog is gonna make sure there's meat in the yard whether or not I bring it there.
