Steve Caporizzo’s Pet Connection, American Eskimo/Chihuahua mixes
If you missed "Pet Connection" today on the " Sean and Richie Show", here is another chance for you to take a look at a couple of great pets up for adoption. We would love to thank our sponsor The Animal Hospital in Guilderland for their help in getting these pets new homes. Let's take a look at the pets featured today.
SOPHIA (brown 8-9 year old mom) and MAUDE (white 6-7 year old daughter) are lovely American Eskimo/Chihuahua mixes, or "Eskie-huahuas", a bit overweight at 20 pounds each. Sweet, quiet, wee wee pad trained, which means they don't have to be walked outside in the winter! They are fine with cats and other dogs and currently reside with a 100 pound Bloodhound! Sophia and Maude were found when a hoarder's house was cleaned out. Both were extremely obese and their toenails had grown into their paw pads--both of these factors may explain why they don't move around much unless encouraged, although they are losing weight and are becoming more active now. Maude and Sophia are very attached to each other and MUST be placed together. Both have had recent dental cleanings and extractions and are ready for a new, loving adult home. Because of their small size, no children under ten or so.
