How The 12 Elderly Chihuahuas Were Rescued

This heroic team is on a mission to save animals from the euthanasia list in high-kill shelters. Luckily, they chose to come and save 12 elderly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes, providing them with the love and care they deserve.

How the lives of these pups changed after they were rescued is just adorable.

This really isn’t just happening in Florida. Across the U.S., shelters are full of old Chihuahuas waiting for their second chance at a loving home. True, puppies and younger dogs seem to be the in-demand group, but their older counterparts have so much to offer the potential owner.

Why Older Dogs Deserve a Happily Ever After

Many senior dogs, for example, are located in shelters for heart-wrenching reasons: sometimes, it may be because their owners have passed away. Sometimes, their owners move to assisted living and can no longer take care of them.

The biggest regret is that these senior Chihuahuas are brought up due to medical problems that their human families feel they can’t handle. Let these great senior dogs at least enjoy the golden years of their life in paradise in a forever home.

Selling an older dog means giving them a new home: a quiet, loving place in which to live out the rest of their golden years. Life in a shelter is hard enough for some senior dogs when all they have known is the comfort of one home for all their years.

Pup-life stress can be overwhelming, but the shelter transition is even harder. With a senior dog, you’ll not only make one dog happy but also give a place in a shelter for another one.

Elderly Chihuahuas have so much love, thankfulness, life, and affection to give. Most of the time, they are already calm in nature, so that’s another real value to those who want relaxed pets.

The best thing? Elderly Chihuahuas can be very good companions for pet owners. And with senior dogs, you already know their personality, as it is already developed—you really know what you get.

Ready to Adopt a Senior Dog?

If you were to think about an animal, don’t forget about the older dogs in the shelter or the humane society of the region. The older pets are waiting to love you and behold your experience.

The 12 elderly Chihuahuas amount to so very much, because they place this story center stage, its core message, reminding others of the lasting difference each may make in the lifespan of a senior pet, merely by adopting.

Each of these little dogs gets to live every day now in their life with an abundance of nurturing love, and all because a dedicated rescue group made it happen.

So next time you feel like bringing a little pet into your life, think of all those senior dogs who are waiting ever so patiently for another chance. They may be greyer in fur, but their love and the capability of being loved are eternal. Gift a senior dog their happily ever after and experience the joy of saving a life.

With an adopted senior dog, be ready to have a heart that’s full of love and a house filled with cuteness. They may be getting up there in their years, but there’s so much more to give. Head to your local shelter to meet these fantastic dogs all ready to add love and joy to life.
