Update 6/30/11: Foster mom and puppy were taken by PetsUnlimited today for their adoption program. Thank you!
This little chihuahua puppy was surrendered to OAS this week from a citizen who could no longer care for her after receiving her as a gift.
The puppy was distressed having been too young when she was weaned and separated from her mother (it is illegal to sell puppies in California younger than 8 weeks old). We tried to pair the puppy with several female dogs; most of which growled, barked or ignored the baby when she was put in a kennel with them.
This mama however, immediately became excited, tail wagging, upon sight of the puppy. She has taken the baby in and quickly took to cleaning and comforting her. They are quite happy together and can be found all snuggled up in their kennel together.
