Lenny and Gus – In Long term Care

UPDATE: Due to their age and health we have decided to let them stay in our care and in their loving foster home for the rest of their lives !! — Gus was happy when we gave him the news !!


These two cuties are about 12 and 13 years old we think. They’re pretty easy there sweet and lovely and just need a nice retirement home.

Lenny is the Yorkie X and Gus is the chihuahua —

Lenny is very affectionate and just wants to be held and with you .. he is not neutered unfortunately and the vet doesn’t recommend doing it with his age. He is also on hypo food and surolan for his ears as he seems to have some food allergies so we are working on this.

Gus is quiet and sweet and starting to come out of his shell .. he seems to be a bit deaf and losing his site but he gets around well and it doesn’t slow him down !

they both like their walks and are pretty easy. They do both “mark a tad” in the house so also working on that but belly bands in the home can fix that !!

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.
