    People that abandon their pets, make me nuts!:bang::bang::bang: A coworker knows of a little Chihuahua in her neighborhood, that the people have abandoned! It's surviving on garbage and whatever it can find!:sosad: She lives in the Niceville, FL area, which is north of Destin. I've rescued and found homes for many furry friends and have to help this baby, somehow! If I met those idiots, I believe that I might end up, in the poky!!!

    I spoke with my coworker tonight and she said that it's been in their driveway, tonight. The baby is light brown and she's not sure if it's a male, or female. The little thing wouldn't let my coworker near it, tonight! It acts like people have been, running it off! The idiot family that abandoned her was breeding them, for bucks! Guess the baby's usefulness, was up! Honestly, I can't imagine living in that area, knowing that there was a helpless baby out there, fending for itself!

    I can't get an exact address, only that it's on Howard (Maybe St) in Villa Tasso, near Robert Ave, in Niceville. Please, can't someone help, this little lost soul!:wub: From what I'm understanding, the baby's been on it's own, about two weeks! She first realized it was out there, when it was in her garbage can!:sosad::sosad::sosad:

    I am assuming she has been feeding this poor thing since she saw it in her garbage can? Has she been able to put food and water out on her porch and go back inside and the dog come to it? I sure hope so. She just needs to try and gain its trust a little each day, maybe it will come to her eventually.

    My boss just rescued a cute older female Chihuahua off the road in the middle of Sandestin (98!). Couldnt find anyone to do anything about it (1am) but he cant take care of since he has a HUGE Dobie. If anyone hears anything about someone willing to take in an old lady that has an awesome demeanor, plz post here.

    Suggestion!

    Have they tried to find the Chihuahua's, family? Please, make sure that they take it to a vet, PAWS, or Alaqua, to be scanned, for a microchip. Also, get them to ck petfinder.com, where you can post ads for "missing & found, pets"! Make sure that they ck the area papers, to look for a "lost" pet ad, too! I reunited a Jack Russell, that way!:clap:

    This has been, sooo frustrating! My coworker is now telling me, that she thinks the Chihuahua belongs to someone! And that it roams with other small dogs! I also feel that my coworker, may wish that she hadn't told me, about the baby! I can't imagine knowing that this was going on and NOT doing something! I've had too much going on, to go to Niceville. I've posted the area where it's been seen, is anyone able to ck it out? I've been off last few days, but, with car repair issues, couldn't go to Niceville. I'll ck with coworker and update, tomorrow.

    You are all the best people to watch out for this little baby. I wish I lived down there. We have the same thing where I live from time to time. My wish is that there is a special place in you know where for people who ignore, do not take care of and abuse animals. Do you have a no kill shelter down there that it can be taken to? I asked this before about another animal.

    There are a few, but they're usually chronically full, and you need DoD connections to get access to Pet Welfare on Eglin, which is most likely to have space available.

    What is a DoD connection? I am not sure how it works there but our shelter which is no kill is never "full". They take all animals. I do have to say they have a huge support base. I am just worried about that little pup.

    Sandestin has a security station. They keep a log of pet owners and pictures of their pets. I would contact the Sandestin team do find the owner of the chihuahua.
