One of the saddest sights one could see is a once beloved pet confused, lost, and abandoned. According to statistics published by The Zebra, over 3.9 million dogs are abandoned or given up to a shelter across the USA. Unfortunately, the pup from today’s story was one of them.
It is my honor to introduce to you Chewy, a sad and abandoned pup who got the strength to wiggle his tail once again.
A 3-month-old Chihuahua was found scared and injured inside of a Las Vegas airport restroom. Upon first glance, the woman who found him thought that this was just another pup being cruelly abandoned, but when looking closer, she soon realized that this was not the case.
When she approached the scared pup, she noticed that there was a small letter explaining that this pup wasn’t unwanted. A series of unfortunate events took place, forcing his owner not only to leave the state, but her beloved doggo, too.
The letter wrote:
“Hi! I’m Chewy! My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart, but she had NO other option. My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head. He probably needs a vet. I love Chewy sooo much — please love and take care of him.”
I can’t even imagine how scared the little guy was.
Fortunately, a very kind soul found Chewy and was ready to help. He was swiftly taken to Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue where they welcomed him with open arms. And so, his recovery journey began!
He was first taken to the ER where they discovered he had no serious injuries. He was then taken to the local vet where he was given a good and thorough checkup, from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail.
He was also given all his shots and a fecal test to really make sure he was healthy.
After some nurturing, Chewy got right back onto his paws and was looking for his new forever home! Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue took to Facebook, telling his story and letting everybody know he will need a new loving family to take care of him. And, he found one in no time.
Chewy is now not only a part of a loving home, but also a member of the Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue team, reminding people that there are others who have the same sad story.
Please, if you no longer want your pet or can’t afford to have him, take him to your local rescue. If you are looking for a new fluffy member to brighten up your life, head to your local shelter and become a proud member of pet parents!
