One morning while taking some cats into the feral cat spay/neuter clinic I noticed a younger Hispanic man who looked out of place in the sea of crazy cat ladies. We made eye contact and I approached him to find out if he needed help. He didn't speak a lick of English and my Spanish is limited to silly words like beer and hello! So we didn't make much progress but I was able to convey to him to just take me to the problem if that was possible. We head to what I think is his car but no actually we walk down the street to his apartment! Hoping I don't die I wait patiently outside while he runs inside.
The man comes out with a covered litter box and I peek inside expecting to see a kitten or kittens but instead I see 2 little baby Chihuahuas! I wonder where their Mom is or how he got them but I can't communicate that to him so instead I just express my gratitude and hug him! I take the babies home with me and realize they are so young they need to be bottle fed so I break out my formula and get to work!
After several days of bottle feeding this pair of cute babies start to eat on their own!
I often think of the man who gave them to me and wonder what the whole story is but I am just grateful he reached out for help and I hope he knows that these babies are well and loved!
Lily and Leif are best friends and need to be adopted together! They are super cute and super small Chihuahua's mixes. They have super cute big ears that look Papillon to me but who knows! I just know they are really cute pups!
Leif and Lily love dogs big and small, get along with cats and kids. However a home with small children is not recommended as they get a little spooked by the quick erratic movements that children under 5 often make.
They are both fixed, up-to-date on vaccines, hw negative and have a clean bill of health! :)
