Precious Chihuahua Senior Needs Your Help To Live Out Her Glory Years

Meet Nacho, a senior Chihuahua mix, who was turned into a shelter when her owner was no longer able to care for her. Thankfully, the Blind Dog Rescue Alliance stepped in right away and she was brought to her foster home where it was immediately clear she was seriously ill. 

Nacho was taken to the vet and her glucose was so high that she was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis, a life-threatening condition. The vet staff provided intensive care to her and were worried she would require hospitalization to get stabilized but, by the next day, she was starting to improve! She is now on insulin injections twice a day at her foster home and she wears a continuous glucose monitor so her blood glucose levels can be monitored. 

However, Nacho has other medical concerns. She is very thin. While she can hear well, she has bilateral cataracts and dry eye which requires twice-daily medication. She has advanced dental disease. She is not spayed. She has a Grade II heart murmur. She has an abscess on her leg which is being treated with antibiotics. Her initial bloodwork indicated she may have kidney or liver disease or possibly Cushing's. More bloodwork will be completed soon to learn more. Once Nacho has more stable blood glucose and gains weight, consideration will be given to completing a dental and spay. At this time, it would be very risky to do either. 

Other than her health issues, Nacho is settling into her foster home. She gets along with the four other dogs and doesn’t seem to notice the cat. She loves to eat and she has gained weight – she was 7.5 pounds when she came to her foster home and is already over 9 pounds but is still quite thin. She is a little sad she is not allowed snacks since diabetic dogs should just eat twice a day. 

Nacho sleeps quietly through the night in an indoor pen. She is housetrained, although sometimes has an accident because her diabetes is not yet under good control. She doesn’t mind the leash. She likes to be outside to walk around unless it is dark or raining. Then she would rather be inside! She loves attention from her foster parents, and especially loves her head and her belly rubbed. She also doesn’t mind sitting in a lap! She is good with getting her insulin injections and her eye medication. She has been great at the vet clinic!

Nacho is in good hands with the Blind Dog Rescue but she could use your support with donations for her ongoing medical care or by sending a special item from her wishlist. Please help us continue to help sweet Nacho. Thank you so much for your compassion and kindness! 


Sweet Peanut
Male | Small | Senior | Fawn

Peanut is a 12 1/2-year-old Pomeranian who came to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance from an owner who was unable to care for him. 

Several years ago, he was attacked by another dog and as a result, is blind in one eye. He was also kept in a child's diaper most of the time. Peanut's luck changed two weeks ago when a volunteer from Blind Dog Rescue Alliance was able to pick him up and foster him until transport was arranged to his long-term foster home. 

For the first time in a long while, Peanut could feel the grass under his feet and smell the outside air. 

Peanut has been with his long-term foster home for a week now, and he continues to enjoy what life has to offer. He barks, runs as best he can, and has a favorite squeaky toy. He looks forward to meal times and cuddle times and enjoys his very own special treats. He's also working on pottying outside. 

Unfortunately, Peanut also has some medical issues. X-rays show he has back and neck issues likely due to intervertebral disc herniation and vertebral spondylosis, and he's on daily medication for pain and inflammation. He's also been diagnosed with a collapsing trachea, which is fairly mild at the moment, thank goodness, and only causing an intermittent cough. 

Even with his issues, he's a very sweet and happy little boy who loves attention and only wants to be with his human. Thank you to all for keeping Peanut in your thoughts!
