two are Nina, the cute white 11-year-old, and her “bestie” Chloe, the gorgeous tan 10-year-old. They are Chihuahua mixes
that have always lived together, that is, until tragedy entered their lives.
They shared had an incredible home with an amazing owner where they were loved unconditionally, but then suddenly, their beloved owner passed away and no one would take them in so they were placed at the shelter.
Thank heavens they have each other because it has been tough. Can you imagine going from a nice, warm home with a loving person who cared for them all of their lives to finding themselves in a loud and cold shelter the very next day?
Here are some things you should know about them:
· They are very bonded and need to be adopted together.
· They might be house trained because they wait until they are outside of their kennel to go potty.
· They are playful with children.
· They enjoy car rides.
· They love walks.
In general they are a couple of happy-go-lucky girls who have a tail wag for everyone they meet
Worried about adopting older dogs? Don’t be? Smaller dogs tend to live longer. The wonderful organization, Healthcare for Homeless Animals, sent them to a private vet for a senior wellness check-up and while they both could use a little dental cleaning, the only thing to keep an eye on is that Chloe has a grade 2 heart murmur which means it is soft, but easily heard with a stethoscope. Other than that they are ready to go to your home.
Save a Life, be a hero and make their later years as wonderful as their previous. At shelters, older dogs are often the last to be adopted and often overlooked. By adopting them you will get an unmatched emotional return on your investment, one you’ll feel the rewards of each and every day you spend with them.
There are angels in our community. We meet them time and again at the shelter. Could this be your turn to be that angel who will be watching over Nina and Chloe by giving them a forever home?
