"Bambi and Ginger were abandoned together on the New York City subway last spring," Schwartz tells The Dodo.
And Biscuit, the Chihuahua with the dangling tongue, was dumped at a grocery store with a broken leg.
The dogs all found their way to the local animal shelter where Schwartz works. And from there, they found their way to her home.
"They all passed through," Schwartz says. "I'm completely smitten with them."
It didn't take long for these dogs to discover that home is where the bed is.
