Happy ’tail'! 18 of 26 Chihuahuas rescued from Colorado Springs apartment now in forever homes!
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Eighteen Chihuahuas rescued from questionable living conditions now have “furever" homes!
The Chihuahuas were among 26 rescued from a single Colorado Springs apartment after they were discovered during an eviction in late September. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region says the dogs were found living in crates in a garage. Despite the sheer number of dogs and the living situation, most of the dogs appeared medically healthy. HSPPR spayed and neutered the pups and announced last week that the first group was available for adoption.
“Our behavior staff has been working with all of these guys, but they are still a little shy, and they will need some time to get used to their new lives with you and your family,” said HSPPR Wednesday morning.
Dog lovers answered the call, and five days after their first announcement, HSPPR announced 18 of the 26 Chihuahuas were now in loving families.
