Fragile and neglected 15 year old chihuahua in need of immediate rescue at California shelter

Spread the love

An ancient, frail and neglected chihuahua thought to be 15-years-old, arrived at San Bernardino Animal Services on Wednesday (August 8, 2023) as a stray. This little one needs to exit the shelter as soon as possible and receive the care she deserves.

Her name is Coco:

Adoption Listing:


I am a female, black and gray Chihuahua – Smooth Coated. Shelter staff think I am about 15 years old. I have been at the shelter since Aug 08, 2023. If I am not claimed, after my stray holding period, I may be available for adoption on Aug 15, 2023. For more information about this animal, call San Bernardino City Animal Control at (909) 384-1304.
Ask for information about animal ID number A558164.

I nearly dropped the phone when I got her weight. Rescue Only Coco is ONLY three lbs. The thought of this medical baby on the streets BREAKS me.

The notes include severe dental disease, eye issues, poor nutrition and overgrown toenails. I can assure you Coco has NEVER been vetted. My goodness, she’s not even spayed!!

PLEASE look past the photo of this thrashed doggy and know that there is a living, sentient, being who has been treated like trash. She is all alone except for us.

I can’t even imagine how lonely this doggy feels.
