Rita Earl Blackwell was walking around an animal shelter when she came across a kennel with two Chihuahuas huddled together in one doggy bed. Rita recalled that the little brown girl pooch looked happy to see her, while the light-colored boy pup named Dumpy hid behind his sister.
Rita shared that Dumpy’s sister had a full list of adopters, while he had none. Rita asked one of the kennel attendants to go in and sit with the dogs, and she noticed that the girl came right up and quickly climbed on his legs for pets.
Dumpy, on the other hand, looked too cautious with everyone and everything. Rita knew that Dumpy really wanted to trust, but he chose to keep his distance.
Rita decided to text A Purposeful Rescue and asked if there was any way they could help Dumpy. Rita immediately received a response and told her that they would love to have Dumpy under their care.
A woman named Kaley Cuoco saw Dumpy’s photo on the rescue’s page and decided to foster him. Kaley wanted to have Dumpy because not only is he old and could not walk, but he is overweight, and his teeth are also falling out.
Dumpy was immediately brought over to Kaley’s house for foster. Kaley recalled that Dumpy was very scared of her and wanted nothing but to be in his doggy bed, but he eventually started exploring the house after a couple of days.
Kaley shared that she and her husband almost sat on Dumpy multiple times because he always hid under the sheets like a quiet little mouse. Kaley admitted that she has never seen a dog be able to bury his entire body under the covers.
Dumpy eventually got used to his foster home after being welcomed by everyone in the family. Kaley bonded with Dumpy almost immediately and decided to adopt him for good.
