Pink puppy found abandoned with broken leg gets new home
It’s hard to imagine anyone abandoning this adorable pink puppy.
A member of the public found the three-month-old Chihuahua with dyed pink fur lying in the street in East Palo Alto, California.
She was found with no collar or ID and was not microchipped.
Staff at the Peninsula Humane Society (PHS), who decided to name her Candy, also discovered a hairline fracture of her rear right leg.
‘This is a little more unusual than your usual stray dog because the dog had an injury and the dog was dyed,’ spokesman Scott Delucchi told SFGate.
‘It shows some level of care and attachment that someone went to the trouble to do that. You would think that someone who would show that level of attachment would look out for their dog.
‘But this is pretty weird.’
They have since found Candy a ‘wonderful’ new home after hundreds of people expressed an interest in adopting her.
‘We also want to take the opportunity to make a case for our 30+ Chihuahuas awaiting adoption,’ Mr Delucchi added.
‘They aren’t two months old puppies dyed pink, but we consider these regular adoptions to be every bit as special as Candy’s adoption.’
