Arrival Story:
Mama is the brown chihuahua in the picture. My husband and I were returning from a horse show last May on a very hot day. We turned off the main road onto a county road and were about to go around a curb when Pedro ( the gray and white chihuahua in the pic) and another female chihuahua ran into the road. We stopped and when I went to pick them up I was only able to catch Pedro. He was exhuasted and dehydrated. I followed the female down a driveway and happened to look to my right and there in a cactus patch was Mamacita. She was lying in the shade and looked so sad and scared. I tried to catch her and my husband had to block her. I picked her up carefully because I was afraid she would bite me. We took Pedro and Mama home and realized that they were very old and had not eaten in a while. I went back to try to catch the other female but she was so scared. I tried for a week, someone told me that they had been dumped out in the country early the morning that we found them. Anyway, we had a tornado about a week after finding them and the day of the tornado we saw the little girl chihuahua dead on the side of the road where we first saw her. Either she got hit by a car or the tornado killed her. She never would leave that corner, I guess she was waiting for Pedro to come back or the person who dumped them.

I took Mamacita and Pedro to the vet. He said that they were both at least ten years old. I think that he knows who they had belonged to. An elderly woman had passed away and the family did not want the dogs. I tried to find a chihuahua rescue for them, but could not. After having them for a couple of weeks I had fallen in love with them and could not give them up. I love them dearly and they will never be without a home again.
