Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Precious, a tiny longhaired chihuahua, had been adopted from a shelter at a fairly young age and then was surrendered to another shelter at the age of probably 10-12. Somewhere along the line she had become very frightened, losing much confidence in humans and the world in general. She of course was in desperate need of a dental so chances of adoption at the shelter were few. An ODH home with 3 other little chihuahuas took her in and has watched her blossom. Teaching a scared fragile little thing that life is good, that humans can be trusted, and that it’s OK to have fun – all that takes a lot of patience and a lot of time.
Precious is gaining confidence every day and seeing her be happy and thrive just melts her ODH mom’s heart.
