Pit Bull and Chihuahua Pals Find a New Home

By Amy Sinatra Ayres | vetstreet.com

Happy Days are here for Chachi, the long-haired Chihuahua, and his pal Joanie, the Pit Bull mix.

Yesterday we told you about how Joanie was found carrying Chachi, who had a severe eye infection, in a Georgia neighborhood earlier this month. Offers to adopt the two poured in from around the world to Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Animal Control.

Officer Christina Sutherin, who rescued the pair, chose an unnamed new owner in Florida to take them in.

Plans are being made to transport them south to their new home next month. - Read it at the Savannah-Chatham Police Facebook Page
