Our dogs are our best friends and family members, providing us with unconditional love and devoted companionship. Furthermore, they provide us a variety of joys and act as effective anti-stress aides, making us happier and healthier. After all that pets have done for us, they are entitled to be cherished and cared for by responsible owners.
Unfortunately, not everyone is capable of caring for their dogs and providing them with what they require. That’s exactly what occurred to one dog owner who was forced to give up her pet due to personal circumstances.
Meet Chewy, a 3-month-old Chihuahua who was found in a Las Vegas airport toilet, injured and abandoned with a note.
The kind woman who discovered him was outraged at first, but after reading the message, she couldn’t keep back her emotions.
“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 has 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.”
Fortunately, he was captured by a beautiful woman and taken to Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue, where he was cared for and fed.
Lindia Gilliam, the shelter’s founder, told The Dodo, “I got down on my knees.” “I accepted him without hesitation and told my guardian to bring him to the ER immediately.”
Darlene Blair, CMDR’s Admin Director, stated, “He was transported to the ER and given a once over, and he was discovered to have no significant injuries.” “The next day, he was transported to our usual vet, Town Center Animal Hospital, for a thorough examination, a flu vaccination, and a fecal test to ensure he was in good health. In the next weeks, he’ll have his immunizations, be microchipped, and neutered.”
Linda hopes that Chewy’s tale will raise awareness about the risks of domestic violence and abuse in general.
“As a whole, this is a highly underappreciated issue,” Gilliam added. “We also wanted to convey to Chewy’s mother that she did a heroic thing by rescuing him, and that he is safe and will have a wonderful life.”
Chewy the Chihuahua has got his forever home with a new owner after everything that transpired. Chewy and his heroic mother have a bright future ahead of them, we hope. And who knows, maybe they’ll meet up again one day.
