BREED: Chihuahua Mix
AGE: 6 Years Old
On Saturday morning September 21st we saved 8 very nervous, but adorably loving Chihuahua mixes from a hoarding situation in the Bronx with help from the @nycacc. What we walked into was more than 30 dogs running away and cowering behind any object they could possibly find, in a very dirty environment. We worked hard for over an hour trying to obtain their trust in order to safely secure them in our care. Thanks to available foster homes we were able to save 8, with other rescues stepping in for the other ones. These precious babies are all different ages, and had never seen a veterinarian before, never stepped outside, never walked on a leash, or socialized with other humans or dogs. All of the dogs were seen by our vet partner Sheepshead Bay Veterinary and luckily will all just need dentals done to fix dental disease and while in our care which will cost about $400 per dog, alone with spay/neuter. They have each been doing so wonderfully in their foster homes and quickly adapting – It’s truly heartwarming to see what the love and patience of our foster homes has done for these little guys!
These dogs are sweethearts, bond easily, and are great with other dogs! Apply to adopt below
