A man held an unconscious 1.8-pound Chihuahua puppy that wasn’t a Chihuahua at all

Rescuers from Dallas RRR found a tiny puppy barely alive. He was so weak that he could not keep his eyes open for long or lift his tiny head. The puppy, later named Stuart, was so small he weighed just 1.8 pounds.

Because of Stewart’s tiny stature, he has been classified as a Chihuahua, but he is not. What shocked the rescuers was what the vet told them next: This puppy, weighing less than 2 pounds, was actually a pit bull. He was so severely anemic from the tick and flea infestation that he needed an immediate blood transfusion or he would not survive.

The first two days of Stewart’s rescue were so terrifying that rescuers didn’t think he would make it. But they didn’t give up on him, that’s for sure. Three days later, Stewart began to improve. He was sometimes in consciousness, then he lost it, so that he could not sleep for hours on end. Now it’s time to find Stuart a foster family. A woman named Susan was happy to open her heart to the little fighter.

Susan picked Stuart up and when she brought him home he was sleeping a lot but then thankfully perked up after a few days. He actually started acting like a real puppy! Susan’s brother named Shane wanted to meet a little warrior dog. Shane and Stewart had an instant connection. Shane sat on the couch and Stewart climbed right on top of Shane. He laid his head on his chest and they both fell asleep. It was like these two were meant to be.
