Many of you have followed the journey of this little dog…
It has been a year now since I found him curled up in a little ball starved and near death, in my front courtyard.
It was determined he had been abandoned (as many pets are out here in the desert) and tried to survive on his own for about 3 months. We had seen him rangeing out on the edges of our property for months but though he was a desert fox.
He was one violent, aggressive little guy… so starved and abused..by humans and survival, that he was quite literally just on the edge of wild and I feel physcologically distroyed.
I had been told by all the vets in the area to put him down without haste. He was a huge liability not only to my husband and I, but to anyone that may come to our home.
But as you also may know… I couldn’t and wouldn’t give up on him. He thus went into Susan’s Rehabilatation Course.
Needless to say he has flourished and is a member in good standing in the Bergstrom Pack.
He has stopped hiding under blankets (although it is his nature to be covered up at bedtime, he still has his favorite blankie)…it is the burrowing instinct and after all, that is probably how he survived the tempest of the desert.
Typically Chihuahua’s are well known “ratters” and I have seen him dive right down a hole, they like dark places…
It has been a long road with several set backs and… “Am I doing the right thing” kind of thoughts… but he has turned into a peaceful, happy little dog…
Thanks for viewing my photography.
