HOMEWARD BOUND - ADOPTED - now living happily in Des Moines, IA!
Early one morning, staff members arriving for their shifts found a small airline carrier sitting on the stoop in front of the shelter. In it there were three small Chihuahuas, huddled tightly together and looking positively terrified. They had been left there in the night. As surprising as it was to see these new residents, caregivers quickly got busy soothing these little cuties and setting up a comfortable playpen with blankets, food and water. If we didn't know better, we'd say Chiquita was born in Hollywood. She is a natural born star. She is silly and busy and hams it up for the camera. She zips and zooms about the place, playing with toys twice her size. Although tiny in stature, Chiquita is mighty and confident. Her new family will have lots of fun telling stories about her goofy antics.
