[ # ] Bring home Second Chance Chihuahuas tonight on Nat Geo Wild
April 16th, 2016 under National Geographic

Laura Dash is small in size, but she has a big heart for neglected Chihuahuas. Tonight at 9p, BarkFest continues on Nat Geo Wild with Second Chance Chihuahuas, and you get to see how far she will go to save them and find a furever home.
These sweet little pups are the second most euthanized dogs in the country and she is going to save as many of them as she can. In the last 10 years, she has rescued almost 2,000 of them. Tonight you will get to see her work her magic on just a handful of them.
The episode starts off with her getting call from a shelter that they have one with a broken leg and he needs surgery to get it fixed. She asks the doctor if she can meet him to see if he would be a good fit for her rescue. As soon as she meets the sweetie, she falls in love and takes him home until he is ready to get the surgery.
The next call she gets is about a Chihuahua running loose in the LA River. So Dash and Jim Peterson dash down there, try to find the little guy and take him back to the Dolittle Ranch in Studio City with them. As soon as they catch the dog, they realize he has been abused and he is not very people friendly. They will have a lot of work to do with him before he can find a furever home. They name him Grumpy and he lives up to his name. Not only is not people friendly, he doesn’t like other animals either. She will use water therapy to get closer to him and you will be shocked by how quickly it works.
Dash and Peterson have another Chihuahua in their house that is ready for adoption, but he doesn’t know how to walk on a leash. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but will they be able to teach this one that trick?
They get one more call and this time someone says they saw 10 Chihuahuas running around in an abandoned building. The two of them make a date night to capture as many as they can and see how feral they are. After spending the night in the building, they come out of there with five of them. Sadly the Dolittle Ranch is full and she will have to find other rescues for them.
Many of us have animals that were rescued and with this show you get to see how much work goes into getting them ready to be adoptable. It is not easy work, but we appreciate all that they do.
Chihuahuas hold a special place in my heart because when I was a teenager, my grandfather found one chasing a Doberman in the South Bronx and gave it to us. We had Gizmo for the rest of his life and he was the sweetest dog. Granted he was the only dog in a house full of a cats that were all bigger than him. Even with all of that against him, they all got along purrfectly.
In other words, they are small in size, but they are big as their bark. So adopt one now! You will want to after you watch Second Chance Chihuahuas.
