Default Poor baby doll ;-(

Yesterday I adopted a chihuahua who is really bad off. I feel so sad for her. First she is scared to death,has not pooped or peed since I picked her up at one thirty in the afternoon. She was on garbage food purina one. She is hugely over weight the worst I have ever seen. There is two or two and a half inches of fat on her ribs alone . I can't weigh her yet too afraid. She should weigh like three or three and a half pounds at the most. Probably weighs at least six pounds maybe more. I got her to eat a tiny bit but she will not drink water I syringe fed she some water so hope full she won't get dehydrated.
This situation is bad I bathed her yesterday she just smelled awful she really needs her nails cut but I am gonna wait a little bit for that. She don't even get out of her bed but one time. I have her separated from my other chis I think that would be a bit much at this time. I gave her nutracal which she hates lol just to be sure her sugar stays up. Her teeth are already brown and she is only eight months old.

If anyone has any ideas how to help her please tell me. Poor thing has that look in her eyes like she is at the vets. I am sure you all know that look . Look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and ideas. Here is a pic of her the way she is right now. She has no waist what so ever. Attachment 22466

Aww bless her. She is a little barrel isn't she? Well done for taking her on, I'm sure you will be able to sort her out in time. She has a sweet little face, good luck!

Yes I can she this taking a very long time to fix she has to lose tons of weigh I started her on melatonin because she had really bad dandruff. Thank you so much for you best wishes I am truly going to need them. Surprisingly she came from her breeders house. C'mon she knows better damn back yard breeders. Just care about that dollar

She looks like such a sweetheart! Why was she up for adoption! However, it's a good thing she was!!

You are very good to have taken her. She needs a little work, but I'll be she will be very grateful and loyal! She is just so, so cute!

Backyard breeders are not the only greedy ones! But when it comes down to it, what is a professional breeder? No matter, it's really good that you have her.

Be sure to keep us updated and include photos!

I would work with her slowly. It is going to be a long road ahead but she and you will be better for it in the long run.

First off try giving her little treats to get her use to you and feeling safe around you. I would think PureBites Chicken (only ingredient is chicken and chicken is a low fat protein) Also get her a good food that is a low fat protein.

has she been vaccinated? Coming from a breeder's house she might need the safety of other dogs. Do you have a very mellow dog that you could see how they get along and it might be a comfort to her?

Nails- If they are too bad and need to be done take her to Petco, the Vet, or Petsmart walk out of the room while they do them and you run back to rescue her. That way you are not associated to anything not good. Let her trust you first.

Oh and Thank you for rescueing her!
