Hi everyone – we would love to introduce Benji and Jessi, brother and sister Chugs (Chihuahua/pig mixes)!
Benji (Fawn Male) and Jessi (Black/gray female) are 13 year old chugs that came into rescue when their family fell on some difficult times and were unable to provide proper care for them anymore.
They are both deaf and Benji mostly sees just shadows. They are bonded brother and sister and have been together their whole lives so will need to stay together.
Since they came into rescue PROoF has brought them up to date on all their vaccines and they have had a dental cleaning and only a couple of teeth needed to be removed on each. Benji needs some eye drops and thyroid medication daily and Jessi is on heart medication for a minor issue. They are both on the small side – Benji is 17 pounds and Jessi is just 15 pounds.
They are SUPER sweet and Benji loves to snuggle on the couch with his foster Mom. They are in a foster home with several small dogs and one medium sized dog and they do just fine with everyone. They are even fine with cats – Benji was curious about the cat in the home they were in while being vetted, but not aggressive toward her.
This very special pair of chugs will bring double the love to their forever family! They just need a family that will welcome them both so they can stay together. If you have a special place in your home for these adorable senior chugs, please complete the PROoF adoption application today. Their adoption fee is just $150 for the pair. Thank you!
