Shorty is an 11-year-old tiny chihuahua.
He spent most of his life with his brother and sister in the house of an elderly gentleman who did not have the strength to properly take care of a dog’s health.
When the owner died, three pups went to the shelter.
And from there – to a charity dog market, where they met 25-year-old Carlie Cahill.
The woman admitted that she always loved animals.
But she never thought she’d get a little dog.
But when Carli saw Shorty, who looked like a small sausage with paws, her heart melted.
She took the pensioner home.
First, the new owner took Shorty to the veterinarian, because Shorty weighed more than 17 pounds.
After long examinations and tests, the pet was diagnosed with a thyroid disease.
He was given a special diet.
It took Shorty and his owner just over two months to lose more than half of his weight.
Good company helped a lot: Stafford Toad made friends with a little dog and loved to play with him very much.
He urged the Chihuahua to race and jump in a playful attack, to be interested in toys.
Shorty’s life immediately became incredibly eventful and interesting.
Once he was able to move quickly again with his tiny paws, he really loved walking in the parks.
“I am so proud of him because he is such a wonderful kid. He deserves to be able to run and not hobble,” says Carly.
