Exclamation Please help me and my chihuahua stay together! (Washington)

I'm desperately in dire need of some help. There's an emergency and I need to go back to Germany, only things are moving too fast for me to get my precious boy, Liam, situated. I have no money at the moment to board him and I pleaded with the shelter I got him from to see if they could take him for a little bit, but they said the only thing I could do was to give him up--and I can't give him up. It sounds silly, but I made a promise to him; I would be his new mommy and I wouldn't ever leave him...he wouldn't have to worry about being abandoned.

Is there anyone in Washington state willing to house a merle chihuahua for a month at the most? My family will be able to take him again. He'll be three in April; he's housebroken, knows a multitude of tricks and despite his short hind leg, can get around with no problem. He's sweet, playful and loves cuddling. If you know anyone who can help or if there are rescue groups I can contact, please let me know! Out of all the pets we've had, we've never been able to keep one due to moving around so much, but Liam's my first baby and I don't leave family members just because it'd be easier without them.

I wonder if you googled chihuahua breeders in Washington, if one of them would take him in for a month.? I wish you well; its heartbreaking trying to get a pet taken care of in an emergency. No friends/neighbors would consider taking him in?

I can't believe that shelter was not willing to help you and told you to give him up... it's crazy that they'd rather a dog loses their family instead of helping you keep him! Good luck! I hope somebody on here can help you, I wish I could.

Unhappy

@Kippers I can't ship him

Thank you all for your sympathies. We've been staying in motels until we could get our flights arranged and because they don't accept dogs (and we got a hefty fee when we were caught sneaking our fur babies in), so I've been sleeping in the car with them to keep them warm...in 20 degree weather.

Unfortunately and it breaks my heart--I'm bawling as I write this--I had to bring Liam and his brother to the shelter; the owner of the motel is a jerk and wouldn't even let us stay knowing that we had dogs.

The people at the shelter were so cold-hearted. I was a sobbing mess, filling out the surrender form and when it came time to let Liam go, they wouldn't even respect the fact that I wanted to spend a few minutes cuddling him, letting him know how sorry I was that I couldn't keep my promise--the woman just kept insisting that I hand him over. And the look he gave me as she carried him away, he was just bewildered, probably wondering why he being taken away from his mommy. I feel horrible as a person because I let my beautiful baby down; he was supposed to grow old with me.

I haven't given up hope yet; maybe if I find someone, I can call the shelter and beg them to give him back.
