Loose Chihuahua finally caught! Yayyy!

Posted by foreverhomepetrescue on July 28, 2008

About 6 weeks ago we blogged about receiving an email from someone who had been feeding a stray black Chihuahua on a very busy street. The little dog wouldn’t come anywhere near people. We took over a coyote trap and gave them instructions as to how and when to set the trap – and they tried and tried for 6 weeks to get her but had no luck.

Well, last night apparently the sweet little Chi decided that she wanted to be friends with them and she let them pet her. They grabbed her and called us.

Poor little thing is pregnant as a house – and her milk is starting to come in, which means she will be offloading her pups very soon. We’ve got her set up in a pen specifically for puppy-birthin (with baby bumpers around the outside) and we’ll be keeping a very close eye on her over the next couple of days.

She is actually a very sweet doggie – and has already bonded with us and wants pets and belly rubs and actually gave kisses this morning.  You can see her backbone protruding – event though her belly is huge. She ate really well last night, but not so much this morning – which is another sign that the time is close.

We are thrilled that we got her before she gave birth under a bush somewhere on a busy street. Now she is safe, and once her pups are born they will all be placed into loving homes.

Here are some pix from this morning:
