‘Christmas miracle’: Senior Chihuahua missing for 3 years reunited with B.C. family


The pup was found shivering in a box outside a Richmond Trail Appliances store last Wednesday, according to the BC SPCA.“She was emaciated, dehydrated, she appeared to be partially deaf and blind, she had no teeth, she had suspected frost bite on the ears, and she was anemic.”

Staff got the dog immediate medical attention, and posted her photo on Facebook in the hopes of finding her owner.One of the SPCA’s Facebook followers thought she recognized the dog, recalled a woman looking for a similar lost Chihuahua several years ago, and put two and two together.“We have no idea how little Delilah ended up in that box, alone and cold, but we were just so thrilled that we could reunite her with her family. Our whole team was there for the reunion and there were a lot of tears.”

Michel said that even though Delilah is seeing and hearing impaired, she still crawled out of her bed when she realized her family had arrived.The lost dog’s family was equally joy-struck, she added.
