Heartbreaking: 14-year-old Chihuahua wandered away from her home?

How did a tiny 14-year-old Chihuahua wander away from her home and wind up at the Carson Animal Care Center in California? This poor little one is being kept in the medical section so she can rest, but she is in dire need of an experienced rescuer. Shelter notes indicate she is depressed and refuses to stand. She has a left heart murmur and visible genital-urinary linear scarring. In addition she is missing most of her teeth and has periodontal disease along with a loss of vision.

Julie will need immediate veterinary care.  Whether she has one week, one month or a few more years to enjoy her life, Julie deserves better than spending her final days in a shelter. Volunteers say she needs a “village to help her.” Please share her plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

#A5124068 My name is JULIE and I’m an approximately 14 year old female Chihuahua. I am already spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 10/24. I will be available on 10/28. You can visit me at my temporary home at C401. A Facebook page for this little one can be followed here.”

    And adding to her other issues, I can see on the video she has a flea infestation. Can you Carson afford to at least get her more comfortable and give her a flea treatment? I have had many senior rescues and have two senior rescues right now. I would be willing to help. Please call me at 401.742.9447

    Did this poor pup “wander” away from home, if so why isn’t her owners looking for her? More than likely someone got tired of paying her vet bills and left her to fend for herself! I will be sharing this in New York, hopefully someone can help!

      My question exactly – I don’t believe this little dog wandered away – she was abandoned because no one wanted to take care of her – this is pretty obvious just by her condition – and Carson will do nothing but kill her – PLEASE this little girl needs some medical help NOW! Carson won’t even take care of the flea infestation – she is left to suffer – makes me crazy nuts to see how animals are treated by both neglectful uncaring owners and neglectful uncaring so called ‘shelters’.

        I agree with both of you……she didn’t “wander” away. I would bet my next paycheck that she was dumped because of her medical condition.

    If I could get someone to bring her to me – she will have a home. She should have love for whatever time she has. My heart is torn apart by the plight of this baby. God how I hate people who do shit like abandoning a tiny dog.

      I am on the same page as you: I would love to adopt her “as-is”….. problem I have is getting her to Northern California because I can’t go to Los Angeles area due to work and family commitments.

      I have tried to help other seniors but there are no transportation services or rescues that can pull and transfer to a transportation service to get the furbabies up north….. I have contacted many groups suggested and no one is willing to help……

      I hate to think of this treasure dying alone, terrified and worst of all, unloved in a shelter when she could be in a loving home in another part of the state……. but for lack of transportation……..

        I too wish I could get there. I’m in Vegas and work too. Carson is a dump and the workers there for the most part don’t care. Not all of them but a good majority. I’m gonna try and contact them too.

    Owner, please come forward and take your baby home and let her die at home. Ask for help with whatever treatments she needs. There are places that will direct you to someone who can help you.

    You cannot get a live person when you call this shelter!! I’m willing to hop on plane now to get her. I cant stand the thought of her in that place suffering another night. Has anyone ever gotten through ? I have a vet recommendation. this pup might not make it until the 28th
