Our dogs are our greatest friends and family members, who give us with devoted companionship and unconditional affection in exchange for our love and attention. Aside from that, they enrich our lives by bringing us pleasure in various forms and acting as effective stress relievers, making us happier and healthier as a result. They are deserving of being cherished and cared for by their owners after all that they have done to benefit society.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or resources to properly care for their dogs and provide them with what they need. In fact, it is precisely what occurred to one pet owner who was forced to leave her dog due to personal circumstances.
Welcome to the world of Chewy, a three-month-old Chihuahua who was discovered injured and abandoned inside a Las Vegas airport toilet with a letter. She was furious at first when she discovered him, but as she read the message, she couldn’t keep her tears from streaming down.
“Hi! Hello, my name is Chewy! It was impossible for my owner to afford to pay for my travel since she was in an abusive relationship. Even though she didn’t want to leave me with all of her heart, she had no choice but to do so. When my ex-boyfriend and I were arguing, he kicked my dog in the head, resulting in a large knot on his skull. He’s most likely in need of a veterinarian. Chewy means the world to me – please love and care for him as much as I do.”
Fortunately, a kind someone came to his aid and transported him to Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue, where he was cared for and reared.
Founder Lindia Gilliam told The Dodo that her heart “fell to my knees” when she learned of the tragedy. “I didn’t hesitate to adopt him and quickly asked my foster to take him to the nearest emergency hospital.”
“He was taken to the emergency room and examined, and it was determined that he had sustained no major injuries,” Darlene Blair, Administrative Director at CMDR, said. “The next day, he was transported to our normal veterinarian, Town Center Animal Hospital, where he had a thorough nose-to-tail examination, a flu vaccination, and a fecal test to ensure that he was healthy. In the next weeks, he will have all of his vaccinations, be microchipped, and be neutered.”
Linda believes that Chewy’s tale will raise awareness of the dangers of domestic violence and abuse, which are all too common.
“As a whole, this is a tremendously underappreciated problem,” Gilliam added. “We also wanted to convey to Chewy’s mother that she had done something courageous and that he is safe and would have a wonderful life.”
Chewy the Chihuahua eventually found his forever home with a new owner after everything that had occurred to him. We wish Chewy and his courageous mother the best of luck in their future endeavors. They may even meet again in the future if their paths cross again.
