    Mama and son Chihuahuas being sold at a yard sale are saved.


    I saw a photo of these 2 chihuahuas (mama Chickpea and her puppy Potato) on a calendar and thought they were so adorable together. Then I read their story and was shocked. They were being sold at a yard sale alongside other things that the owner wanted to get rid of. Thank goodness a kind lady came along and took them to a local shelter to get properly adopted. I don't know why she didn't keep them but I hope there were consequences for the person running the yard sale. https://www.peta.org/blog/priceless-...et-new-family/

    Oh what a a sad story but with a happy ending. Really touching, glad the two cuties found a home and get to stay together.

    I understand that sometimes people have to rehome their dogs when that's the only option left, but trying to get rid of them in a yard sale is irresponsible and shows how uncommitted the owner is. Many ppl miss the fact that getting a dog is a 8-16 year commitment.. Sad really.

    Glad the lady took them even though she didn't want them for her own pets, they did much better at the shelter, who know who would have taken them at a yard sale, they could have been used for 'bait' in dog fights or abused by someone.
