Chihuahua Rescued on California Highway Creates Social Media Sensation
In case you haven't heard about the scared Chihuahua who ran across a California highway last Friday and then jumped onto median last Friday I thought I would catch you up to speed (get it?) because every Good Samaritan story, especially those that are about animals, needs to be repeated.
Officer Edmon spotted the pup (who did not have a tag or collar) along the freeway and tried to coax her towards him with a protein bar but when it was clear she did not want to be pettedContra Costa County Animal Services, based in Martinez, California, were called to help complete the rescue.
When she got to the shelter she was very timid and scared but
two days later, on Mother's Day, the shelters kennel technicians spent their lunch break with the pup (who has been given the name Freeway) to help her overcome her fear of strangers.
If Freeway's owners do not come to claim her she has plenty of interested adopters ready to give her a forever home!
those who would like to adopt Freeway today because of her story please take
that passion for adoption by visiting your local shelter to give the gift
of life and happiness to a homeless animal just waiting for you to
