Chihuahua Puppies Dumped in Garbage

Posted on Thursday, October 27th

Furkids recently took in two Chihuahua puppies after a Good Samaritan found them in a dumpster. They were so tiny and frail, and they seemed to be sick. When the puppies arrived to Furkids, the dog shelter medical team went straight to work to determine what was making them so ill. Our vets estimated that the puppies were about 4 weeks old, and determined that they had Parvovirus. These Chihuahua puppies who were thrown into the trash like garbage now had a new obstacle: to survive Parvo.  They were transferred out of the shelter and into a vet clinic so… READ MORE >

Trooper was found starving to death,  left in a crate in the middle of a busy road. Because of this traumatic experience, he had exhibited some behavior that turned potential adopters off, but what those people didn’t know was that he was just acting out because he was terrified.  These “hard to place” dogs are animals that have been in our program for some time and have special circumstances that the average adopter may not… READ MORE >
