Update: Trudi was adopted on January 23rd!
A baby herself, Trudi should have never been having babies.
Her story helps exemplify the absolute importance of spay/neuter of companion animals.
Her previous owner called us in a horrible panic. Trudi was trying to give birth to her puppies but one of them was dead and stuck halfway outside of her.
Her previous owner could not (or would not, we don't know) provide the emergency care needed, so we rescued her and rushed her into surgery at a veterinary hospital.
A C-section was performed. Trudi's other puppy died very shortly afterwards, despite exhaustive efforts to save him.
The surgery though did save Trudi. She has had time to recover and be spayed, and she now debuts for adoption today.
Trudi is a Teacup Chihuahua, barely a year of age. She is fine with other sweet, gentle dogs and she loves to be held and reassured.
This petite angel needs and deserves a responsible owner who will commit to her for her entire lifetime.
