Enchilada was one of 103 dogs that arrived at the HUA shelter in July of 2009 from a group of breeders in central Nebraska. He was about eight years old at the time and typical of many puppy mill rescued dogs. His long-hair Chihuahua coat, now beautiful, was sparse and missing hair in many spots. His eyes and ears were infected, and his mouth had the brown-coated teeth and red swollen gums always found in commercial breeders’ dogs. Enchilada was among the worst for being terrified of humans. When other little dogs were out running and playing, he was hiding behind a playpen in a corner shaking in fear. John, the head caregiver, always picked him up and held him—something that does not always work with puppy mill dogs, but it did with Enchie. He fell head over heels in love with John, watching for him, listening for his voice, doing the most charming Chihuahua dance when he saw him. When adoption applications did not materialize for Enchilada, he happily moved to the shelter house where he now lives with John and Eartha, the award-winning agility star Labrador mix, and other self-important little Chihuahuas who adore John. The highlight of Enchie’s life is getting to go to agility practice, and to everyone’s amazement, he has demonstrated how well he can do the obstacles. At age eleven, weighing five pounds, with only two teeth in his mouth, Enchilada has attended meets and brought back ribbons. What is most important for this tiny puppy mill survivor is that he is so happy. He is loved beyond belief, and he has everything that he loves.
