    Any tips?

    Hey guys. So this is nowhere near birds haha, but I rescued a chihuahua. Idk if you know, but if we see an animal in need, no matter what specie, we help it out. So we seen an AD about a FREE CHIHUAHUA. After talking to the owner, we found He puked whenever he ate and shook a lot of the time, and they couldnít afford vet bills. So of course we couldnít leave him. He is sooo skinny. All bones (back, ribs, tail, shoulder blades) are very visible. According to them, Long story short, he was in a crate in their basement since September, (all the time except feeding/watering, going to the bathroom) when they moved and also got a bull dog. The funny thing is, the bull dog is fat as can be, AND has hip problems and goes to the vet monthly. I donít understand why they couldnít take him one time to see what his problem is. I honestly think itís neglect. I got him 12/10, at about 5 pm, Iíve been feeding him small amounts, very often, and he hasnít puked yet. Oh and shaking? Every chi does that. I have theee, my sister has one, and my aunt has like 6, so trust me I know haha. I honestly think he looks a little better today. He is going go to the vet, i donít have a date yet though. Any certain things I should have them check for?

    He is very loving, loves to be with you, EVERYWHERE.

    You are so sweet to take this little dog in and really do hope you can help him gain some weight and get healthy again. It is so sad that the bull dog was a big fatty and this little one was not in the main house and skinny as can be and you may be right that it was just neglected. Poor little guy
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I just go GRRRR when I read about animals that are mistreated like this little dog. They are such fragile and tiny dogs, it is a miracle he survived. I know for sure he could not have met a more loving person toward animals and birds than you. And I KNOW you will see him through and help him 100%. Keep us posted!!
