Chihuahua Possibly Fed Sewing Needles Needs New Home « CBS Los Angeles

ORANGE COUNTY (CBSLA.com) — A chihuahua is recovering from intensive surgery after having nine sewing needles extracted from his digestive tract and body.

Members of Orange County Animal Care picked up the 5-pound stray, who they named “Yoda,” and noticed he walked with a limp.

“His X-ray was astonishing…[The needles] had just left the stomach and were going through the liver, through the diaphragm and were headed into his chest,” said Dr. Diane Craig, who operated on the dog. “It’s hard to imagine a dog would voluntarily eat nine sewing needles.”

Yoda was rushed into surgery, where Craig was assisted by another veterinary surgeon and a support staff.

While the team worked to remove the needles Craig used a magnet to extract one piercing the dog’s heart. At that instant, the organ stopped beating and Craig massaged Yoda’s heart for 15 minutes, without success, before deciding to use a defibrillator.

Yoda miraculously came back to life.
The Chihuahua is expected to make a full recovery. He needs a good home and help paying for his $9,000 surgery.

and a heart warming story;

Lance Bass Posts Photo of Dog Up for Adoption : People.com

Lucky for this puppy, he's got Lance Bass as a Buddy.

On Monday, the former 'N Sync star posted a photo to Instagram of the most recent rescue he's trying to help find a fur-ever home for: Meet Buddy.

"We have tons of fun presents for whoever finds a great home for him!" Bass wrote, instructing prospective owners to email the address of his SiriusXM radio show, Dirty Pop. "Yes he has one eye! So cool!"

Buddy is the star's latest "Lucky Puppy," a term Bass coined for the pooches he's hoping to find a family. And his devotion to canine companions should come as no surprise: The singer is a pet parent to Sadie Button Turchin, a dog he and boyfriend Michael Turchin welcomed into their family last year.
