This is Spacely. He is a long haired Chihuahua that Nicholas found in the middle of a creek, shivering and crying. He obviously has been taken care of, he is not matted although he has really long nails. He walks on a leash nicely, rides in a car, is not upset at being in a crate so I would say someone has taken some time for him. He is not neutered and is not microchipped. Our neighbor, who is also a vet, thinks he is fairly young, maybe 2-4 years old.
As of right now, we have not gotten any responses to our ad listing him as found (minus some details so we can make sure it is not just someone trying to score a free dog). He is very skittish about noises and is not sure at all about Tinsel.
Since we don't know his history, we don't know what he was fed but I do know that I am switching him to raw. We got him some refridgerated food at Petsmart but this evening, I took some of Tinsel's pork neck bones and gave it to him.
He did eat it...all 1.5 ounces of it LOL
Right now, we are not sure what is going to happen with him. I am hoping we find his owners but if not...then we will have to figure out what the next step is. (shots, neutering, bath, nail trimming, basic manners - no marking in the house!)
