Chili was found wandering the streets of Mexico drinking his own urine because he was completely blind due to glaucoma. After 10 years on the streets, he finally had someone notice to save him and take him in, getting him to the vet to remove his eyes. He is now pain-free and ready to have a couch of his own! His 'before' photos are much too heartbreaking to post. From his foster: 'Chiltepin is a sweet old soul & has been crowned 'the goodest of good boys'. When you're around him, your heart can't help but melt into a puddle. He is very gentle & quiet, simply wanting a bone, a warm spot in the sun on a comfy bed inside or out, & time to get his old joints moving. Once up, he loves to explore & gets around quite well despite being blind. Chiltepin does great in a crate at night & will wait patiently to be let out to do his business. For being a street dog, this boy has certainly mastered the house broken life very quickly! He loves to snuggle & will often search for my scent, greeting me with a wagging tail as he leans against me for extra scratches. Chiltepin is intrigued by the smell of cats, letting out a hearty 'Bow-wow', but then resumes his nap unbothered. He doesn't mind dogs of any size, though over all seems to prefer to do his own thing & be with his person. He hasn't quite figured out that as a male he's not supposed to be such a great listener, but we won't tell him that! I'm sure he has way too many of his own war stories, yet he doesn't mind listening to all of yours instead in exchange for some head scratches! Chiltepin is by far the easiest of companions & is just missing his soulmate to spend the rest of his golden years with.' He does come with is Halo Harness which he uses to help him get around!
