A blind 16-yr-old 3-lb Chihuahua that was dumped at the pound by her previous owners because she was old. Through the efforts of many rescues we were alerted and adopted her the next day. We are determined to make her remaining years a joy! In the mean time we use her page to educate people about older dogs (who are the first ones to be put down at the pound) and Puppy Mills (who kill dogs when they get too old) and to raise money for National Mill Dog Rescue and other animal charities.

Thank you to the rescues who stepped and took this sweet little old pup in. The previous owners are pathetic losers!

Poor baby! I'm so glad she has a good forever home for how ever long the rest of her life is.

GOD BLESS YOU! What I would give if my beloved Heidi, who died at 14, and my beloved Hannah who died at 7, had lived to be 16. All our dogs were/are rescues. Would not buy from a store or breeder if you paid me to do it. Every life has purpose until we are called to the beyond. How dare they treat this lovely creature like discarded tissue. It breaks and enrages my heart. So I thank you for rescuing this lovely little soul. I hope you enjoy each other's company for years to come.

I think that what you have done is a wonderful thing. I love dogs and have recently within the year have rescued a lovable pooch myself.She is mix of Chuwahwa and Shi-Tsu about two years of age and she had become pregnant so the owners waited for the pups to be born, they then got rid of mommy and kept the pups for themselves.Wish we as humans took as good care of our adults who are aging and in need of more love and support.

What a precious little guy, I love him, and so happy someone took him in, why do people do this to a aging animal that needs them more than ever now that he is elderly? NEVER UNDERSTAND THIS? thank God for giving him a new home

What a uplifting end to a sad situation, renews some of my faith in mankind. So many older dogs are dumped at a time when they need someone the most,so heartbreaking. I saw a 15 yr old at our local shelter, sure hope she finds the home she needs. I would take her if I didn't have three dogs already.

How precious! Thank God for people like you. We presently have 4 rescues, 2 Chihuahuas, 1 big,brown mixed breed and a calico cat. We have often wished we could buy a place in the country and spend our days looking for lost and stray dogs and cats!

Hurray for you adopting and saving this little soul, I have two adopted chihuahuas , one is getting up there in age and losing his sight, he's precious and I love him to bits!

Thank you so much for helping her. The older ones really deserve to be taken care of and most people pass them by. It is only a special person who would give an old gal like this love thanks you are the one who gets the rewards.
