Misty – Adopted!

Introducing little tiny Misty girl.  Oh she breaks my heart.  I saw this little doll needed help – posted on a rescue forum.  I sent an email and offered to help her.  I exchanged emails with the owner of Misty (actually it was the owner’s daughter).

I can’t believe that this sweet tiny tiny chihuahua was kept outside.  Used for breeding purposes.  And when I pulled the vet records, I discovered that she had been bred all the way up to the age of 8 years old!!!  Having c-sections more than once.  Now the scar tissue is so thick, it may be a complicated situation.

I tried to convince myself not to take in this little girl, because a breeder should be responsible for their own dogs, instead of taking it from them and helping them discard of their “used up” stock.  Then the other side of me argued – but if they give this dog to some Joe Shmoe on the street – she may be subjected to being bred again.  It was a battle of yes, no, yes, no, yes, no with me, myself and I.

I met with Misty and her temporary humans.  I took one look at her and knew she deserved a better life.  She is 10 years old now, and the least we could give her was a home, inside, under warm covers, cuddling with a human that loves her for her…and not for the money she could make them.

Misty is so sweet, I can’t describe how her eyes tell you how sad she has been….how she cries to be near you…


She would make an easy addition for a senior, or an older couple that would love to have a little dog to share their lives with.

But before we can do that, Misty needs some medical attention.  We hope that the community will help raise enough money to get her a geriatric panel and urinalysis at the vet – this is the first step to ensuring she is healthy enough to undergo a complicated spay.  If her bloodwork looks good – we are going to be taking Misty in to Canada West Vet Specialists to have her spayed…however she also needs a dental so badly, and Canada West does not have a dental specialist.  So she may have to undergo anesthetic more than once, which really sucks for her.

Her vet bills will be very costly.  Bloodwork alone will run about $200, a dental with her teeth will probably run about $600 and of course last but not least – the spay – we have not yet gotten an estimate on this, but surely it will cost far more than any normal spay situation.

Please help us help Misty feel better, and find a forever home that will give her all she so deserves.
