Doug and Doogle, Chihuahua Rescue

I went to the shelter this morning to take pics for petfinder.com when I saw these 2 chihuahuas. Both were skin, bones and fleas. Unbelievable infestation. They could not sit for a second without itching. Ticks too. Most pitiful picture!

Somebody had thrown them over the fence at the shelter. I took them home, cleaned them up, gave them a Capstar (to get rid of the fleas), plugged the ticks off one by one and trimmed their already curled nails.

Now they are squeaky clean, don't itch anymore and are eating. Both are unneutered males and have the sweetest personality.

I'll foster them for a few days, get some fat on them and then put them up for adoption:
