Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet"
5 yr old, 5 lb, NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION
TREX is our 5 yr old, 5 lb Chihuahua Mix male DINOSAUR DOG. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and is parasite free.
Sometimes they are really, really broken...SIGH. Another unaltered dog out in search of a love connection hit by a car. Car:1; Dog:0.
He may be named after the big, scary Tyrannosaurus Rex but this 5 lb chihuahua is anything but big or scary. He is incredibly sweet and gives us the most gentle kisses ever. He needed a really strong name to match his spirit -- he has the courage of a lion and the heart of a lamb.
Back in July, were contacted by one of the many animal-loving employees that make up the staff at CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES and were asked to take this little guy who had touched her and her co-workers' hearts. We are so very lucky that they care so deeply for the animals in their shelter. It sure does make a difference for the animals and for us.
He was brought in with severe neurological symptoms after likely being hit by a car. It turns out that he had a BROKEN NECK. To be more specific, it's called an "atlantoaxial instability/luxation" commonly referred to as an internal decapitation. Yup, you read that right. Pretty much his head and neck were partially dislocated from each other.
BUT we are THRILLED to report after two months of cage rest, an amazing foster home and the wonderful care he received at Sage Centers for Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Care in San Mateo, TREX is healed and ready to find his forever home. You can fill out an application and tell us why TREX will fit perfectly into your hearts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
