Murray SawChuck and wife Chloe Crawford have added to their family this weekend “unexpectantly”. They adopted ‘Abby’ from Friends For Life Humane Society based out of Pahrump, Nevada, after popping in to Pet Co. this weekend to pick up a few dog supplies for their Chihuahuas Ella and Kahlua! Murray shares the story with us…
“Chloe and I were on our way to work at the Tropicana Hotel and on my way in I thought I’d stop in to pick up some supplies for our 2 dogs Ella and Kahlua… little did I know I was going to be going home with a dog a day later. Friends for Life Humane Society in connection with Pet Co. sets up their adoption on the weekends at this location. Murray and Chloe walked around the corner and saw all the dogs in these cages and saw one that looked like she could be related to Ella and Kahlua… so we gave her a rub, that led to taking her out of the cage and playing with her… we put her back and thought what a sweet heart… she is 6 years old. I wondered what happened and why someone would let her go… Chloe fell in love with her the minute she held her.
As I drove to work… I was thinking jeezzzz… I thought okay, I will call after my show when the day there is done and see if ‘Abby’ was still there as I was sure someone would have nabbed her up… I called Ron the manager that runs the society and he said “No, we still have Abby”. I asked again, how did you end up with her? Ron explained that they are a ‘no kill’ shelter and when there is space in their shelter in Parhrump they fill another cage with a new dog. Abby was at a KILL shelter and the day Ron walked in to look at the dogs, Abby was taking her last walk down the hallway of the Kill Shelter to say goodbye to this world. Ron stopped them and said “Don’t do that, I will take her to our shelter.”
After hearing that story I said “Ron, are you there tomorrow?” He said, “YES!” I said please take the tag off her cage when you open tomorrow, she is going to come home with us. She just became a SawChuck. It floors me that at 6-year old Chihuahua with a sweet heart ends up in a shelter. I don’t know the back story and never will as it’s protected information but Chloe and I learned a lot today and added a new family member to our house! The best part is Ella and Kahlua, after about 20 minute of sniffing around, invited her in and they have been inseparable since. It’s been a great long weekend for all of us! — Murray
