cat loving vegetable eater


Slinky was found in a wooded area on the side of the road. She was aggressive, emaciated, fearful, covered in fleas, and had late stage heartworm. Slinky’s condition was so poor that the vet initially recommended euthanasia. She feared that even if she survived treatment, Slinky’s aggression would be too severe to manage. I got really sentimental last minute and proceeded with treatment. Because of how advanced the heartworm disease was, how anxious she tended to get when startled by the simplest things, and how thin she was, her chances of survival were guarded at best, but she had come to trust me, and I wanted her to have a chance. Slinky’s aggression has improved dramatically through force free training and patient socialization. She still gets startled pretty easily, but she welcomes guests into our home and sleeps in my bed every night. This is Slinky, the cutest chihuahua mix to ever survive heartworm.
