18 Years Old! Blind and Deaf, Rescued From Storm Sewer

old chi-hua-hua after rescued from storm sewer

Chalupa, age 18. blind, deaf and comfortably home again!

Our frequent hero and friend, Mary of Franklin County OH Animal Control, was dispatched to an area where barking was heard but no dog was present. Mary searched and then discovered Chalupa, an 18 year old blind and deaf chihuahua at the bottom of a storm sewer!

Mary immediately sent a photo and message to Char, our tireless Facebook administrator.  The post reached almost 30,000 people including Chalupa’s frantic family. Thanks to Mary’s diligence and our Facebook friends’ caring and sharing, Chalupa was home again in a few hours.

Coincidentally, earlier in the week, BooBoo, belonging to another member of the family, was recovered when Char matched up a found dog post with a lost dog post. In less than a week the family had two reunions thanks to Pet FBI Ohio Facebook AND friends!
