Chihuahuas have been popular for years, thanks to their small size, big personality, and variety in coat types and colors. But now they’re turning up in huge numbers as strays. Sadly, a growing population of escaped, abandoned or feral Chihuahuas are roaming on the streets.
Three stray chihuahuas were spotted staying at a restaurant parking lot in LA. The poor dogs were abandoned by their owners and forced to fend for themselves on the streets. Homelessness is hard enough, then someone makes their life on the streets even more dangerous. The cruel person shot at them with B.B. guns. Two of them were hit, causing severe injuries for their tiny bodies.
A kind-hearted lady who was feeding them knew that they needed to have a better place to live, so she called Hope for Paws for help. When Eldad Hagar, founder of Hope for Paws, was alerted about the stray dogs, he rushed to save them.
Although the dogs were strays, it wasn’t too difficult for him to catch them. He offered some food, and the dogs immediately approached him. The male dog was the first to approach, followed by the older female and the youngest. They were scared at first, but seemed to know that they were in safe hands.
They were immediately taken to the clinic where they were cleaned up with a nice, hot bath and were given all the medical assistance and care they need. Hagar didn’t forget to give the friendly trio beautiful names: Penny, Brooklyn, and Marty.
But sadly, Penny passed away from heart failure just four days after they were taken off the streets. The one comfort is that she was happy and loved in the last moments of her life. As for Brooklyn and Marty, they found loving families.
Brooklyn and Marty were happy to be adopted together. We are sure that they never have to experience the fear in the streets again, and will be always happy in their forever home.
