Chihuahua / Pug Mix
Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Lorenzo’s family lived in Newark. They abruptly moved and just left Lorenzo behind in their abandoned house. Neighbors reported his plight to animal control, who picked him up and took him to the Fremont shelter. He was not a cooperative resident at the shelter. He couldn’t be handled, vaccinated or vet checked. So the shelter contacted us. It took a couple people to get him into a crate.
Once he settled into his new foster home, he quickly came around - playing with the family’s other two dogs and seeking attention from his foster mom. Lorenzo is not too comfortable being picked up, but it is getting better. He will give a little cry and once in a while a “head whip,” but that is about it.
Lorenzo is blind in one eye, possibly due to an old penetrating injury that healed over. The eye is otherwise healthy, so removing it was not recommended by our vet. He had a complete dental cleaning with a few teeth extractions. Otherwise, he is very healthy for a senior.
He would do well in a home with other small friendly, playful dogs of any age.
