|Bianca roamed the streets of San Francisco, scared, starving and so stressed out that she’d lost most of her hair. A kind San Francisco Animal Care and Control Officer rescued her and brought her back to the shelter for some TLC. Then, Grateful Dogs Rescue got a call about a nearly bald chihuahua needing some special care. Her foster mom Kate stepped right up to provide it!
Bianca (formerly known as Fergie) settled into her foster home quickly and proved to have a healthy appetite! As she gained weight, a gorgeous coat of chocolate-colored hair emerged along with a big personality. She bonded first with other dogs and the family cat in her foster home who showed her how luxurious basking in the sun could feel. Learning to trust people again took a while longer.
Carla and David accepted the challenge and adopted Bianca on January 1, 2010 as a companion for their cat Baby who was lonely. Since then, she’s touched many people’s lives. In the words of her new pack leaders, Bianca has a few health and behavioral challenges but they are small in comparison to the sheer joy and love she brings to our family. We are committed to her health and care for the long haul. We truly appreciate all of the love and support we received from Grateful Dogs Rescue and Bianca's foster mom Kate. Our Bianca has a HUGE heart and a GIANT personality to match. We are very thankful that God has blessed us with Bianca. She has been such a blessing to our family and thanks again to Grateful Dogs Rescue! ~Sincerely, Carla and David Estrada, Baby the cat and Bianca aka Fergie the Chihuahua, San Francisco.
