The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!





A Chihuahua in Oklahoma received a Puppy Pocket Pack Gift Set for Christmas. That is a Snuggie Sack and matching squeaky toy, tied in a bundle with a fleece ribbon. Her name is Baby Girl and she likes it so much her owner sent ECR a thank you note we'd like to share with you.

Deborah, in Lindsay, Oklahoma emails,

"Baby Girl (Chihuahua mix) just wanted to say she loves her Pocket Blankie and it keeps her very very warm! She had to share her toy with her big brother (10year old Lil Man) because he really loves the squeaky."


Enchantment Chihuahua volunteers make the Snuggie Sacks and squeaky toys with lots of love and can ship them anywhere in padded envelopes. So far they have been sent to Colorado, California, Texas, Illinois, and to one very lucky cat all the way up in Bangor, Maine.


There is a still lot of cold weather ahead, especially if you don't live in New Mexico. Small dogs and all cats love Snuggie Sacks. And they can be made to order if you need one a bit bigger. Please consider sending friends and relatives with pets a Puppy Pocket Pack Gift Set for any occasion. Gift sets are $15. The Snuggie Sack alone is $12. Shipping in a padded envelope cost just a little bit more.




Cheesy for Tail Wagger 5.jpg


Have you ever felt kind of scared walking to your car in a big parking lot when it's dark and you don't see anyone else around? Well that's how I feel all the time. I don't have much memory about my life before Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue saved me. That is probably a good thing, because I think it might have something to do with why the world and everything in it seems so scary to me.


I am on my second foster home because the first one had too many barking dogs and it wasn't fun living under a couch. My new foster has two other Chihuahuas but they are both pretty quiet so I can be out and about the house. I am learning to trust people. I like to sit in my foster's lap and watch the biggest flat screen I've ever seen.


What I really need is my forever person. I am positive I will know when he or she holds me the first time. I will know that I am home.

Would you like to hold me?

Why a Dog Wags His Tail



When a dog wags his tail high and wags it back and forth, he's usually feeling pretty good. When he is interested in something, his tail is usually horizontal to the ground. A tucked tail indicates the dog is frightened or submissive. When the tail goes from horizontal to upright and becomes rigid, he is feeling threatened or challenged. A tail that is low and wagging indicates the dog is worried or insecure.
