Flash the chihuahua is a teeny tiny bundle of love. His person passed away and he was living in a crate 24/7 with a family member who suffered from dementia and wasn’t able to provide adequate care. Information wasn’t available regarding vaccinations or veterinary care, so the first thing Flash needed when he came to his ODH home was a thorough examination. His mouth was infected from rotted teeth and he had a large hole between his mouth and nasal cavity created by long term infection of teeth and gums. His bottom jaw has eroded away and taken on the shape of a bird beak. The many problems with his mouth were corrected in an extensive dental procedure.
Flash fit in quickly with the other little dogs in his ODH home. He is happy to have food offered and always cleans his plate. He is getting less nervous over time and from the beginning has been a little snuggle bug. He likes to be hidden under a blanket which keeps him warm and safe. After a few weeks f he did a little happy run around the house and then jumped in a dog bed and rolled all around. His ODH mom thinks that is when he realized he was in his forever home where he would be warm, safe, cared for and cared about.
