Chico has found himself homeless after his mom passed away ..  Chico is a 9 year old Chihuahua

He is very sweet and affectionate with people, love kisses and snuggles and playing tug of war and fetch with toys.  He’s a typical Chi ..   a bit yappy like most Chihuahuas but could make progress with that if he had consistent training.     As well he can be a bit snarky to other dogs so needs someone who can work with him or handle this ..

Chico has had surgeries on all of his knees due to a genetic condition. He has some pain which is mostly managed by a daily dose of a natural supplement called recovery, but sometimes requires metacam.    As well he is on a daily dose of a heart medication called vetmedin.

He can only walk for about 20-30 min, once or twice a day depending on how his legs are feeling.  Living in a house with young children or other pets is not a good option for him.

If interested please email us as we are helping rehome him after his mom passed away

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
