    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.
