From Storm's current caretaker:
This handsome little guy is Storm. He is nine and half years old and weighs seven pounds. Storm is a shy one and takes some time to warm up to new people, but, once he does, he is a sweet cuddle bug. He loves to play in the fenced yard and is also very good on a leash. Storm likes to take walks around the neighborhood with his foster mom. He gets along with his foster siblings very well and enjoys playing with them. He is very laidback and enjoys nothing more than a soft blanket and a comfy doggie bed to curl up in and take nice, long naps. Storm loves to snuggle next to his humans too.

Max is a charming male chihuahua dog currently residing at Chihuahua Rescue & Transport Inc.
Max is already vaccinated and neutered.
Here's what Max's friends at Chihuahua Rescue & Transport Inc. think of him:
Max is over 10 years old and around eight pounds. Don’t let the age fool you; he loves to go for walks and be outside! Max is good with other dogs. Max has no teeth, so he is on a soft diet and will eat just about anything. He is an awesome, funny little dude and wants attention but does still frighten easily. Max is still working on his house-training. We don’t know his history, but it appears he was physically abused. He will run and hide if you raise your voice or if he sees a fly swatter. Max is a cool little dog, always wagging his tail and prancing around. He is healthy and still has many years left to entertain you.

Notes from Nala's caretakers:
Nala is the world’s sweetest pup! She has had a rough start in life due to being seized from a cruelty case in Texas. When Nala was seized, it was apparent that she was paralyzed. Nala has a spinal injury. She has gone through numerous types of therapy to help regain some mobility. She can now take a few steps on carpet or grass.
