Our new rescue pup, Paco
Saturday, December 07, 2013
Last week & a half ago a friend of my husband's came into the same neighborhood bar where my husband visits & had a Chihuahua with him. The poor thing was emaciated & you could see it's ribs & hip bones. Our friend said he had seen this poor baby tied to a tree in his neighbors (Mexican's) yard for the last few days when the temps had dipped down into the mid 20's & he had no water. Our friend said he couldn't stand it any longer so he went into the yard & cut him from the tree & brought him into the bar & asked if anyone wanted him. My husband fell in love immediately.
I knew immediately from the sheepish look on his face when he came home, with his hands behind his back, something was up. He then proceeds to tell me the story & shows me this poor baby. Of course my heart melts & Paco (which we named) becomes an instant part of our family. Our other two dogs immediately took kindly too him & after an one evening, Paco has made himself home. The day after we got him we took him to the vet & they told John had Paco stayed one more night outside, he would not have survived. He got his rabies shot & meds to kill the infestation of fleas that was torturing him. The vet also told my husband Paco was purebred.
In just over a week, he has gained a little over a pound & is happy & playful & has a great personality. Now, if we can only get him house trained. Our nicknames for him are Paco Licksalot & Paco Poopsalot. LOL.
I've included a recent pic of him(L), Shemp(middle), & Polly(r)
