Regarding ribs showing, my kids all are skinny and their ribs show. They are humming with energy from when they wake up till they finally go to sleep, probably a lot like your dog. It's not unhealthy to be thin, especially in youth. It's metabolism. You wouldn't be able to feed that dog enough to make him fat. This is how much they eat for breakfast - about 800 calories. Does anyone want one of them?

I rescued a Brugg (1/2 pug, half brussels griffon) about 3 years ago. He's a great dog and goes to work with me every day. All the rescue people wanted to know was if I had my own home with a fence and were my kids OK. It cost about $500 to get him transferred from the crazy rescue lady to me, then about $1200 more over the first year in vet visits to straighten out his illnesses and diet. The rescue group covered the neutering, but everything else was on me. So now when people ask me about rescuing dogs, I ask them if they have the 2k up front to put into a rescue because it certainly is possible it will cost that much within a year. I don't think it deters the people who actually think about what they are getting into.

I wouldn't trade him for the 2K I had to put into him at this point. Here is a shot of him around last Christmas contemplating an early gift, and the other was taken 5 minutes ago.
