Over the following days we were in contact with those on the ground in Lima, a few days later she was finally rescued by a few dedicated, selfless animal welfare activists. Chiquita was rescued from a very dangerous part of Lima - it is amazing the little girl survived as long as she did. Despite Chiquita's past she is a happy dog, loves getting hugs and loves giving kisses!
After her rescue she was taken to a vet clinic - Charterhouse Vet Clinic in Lima - where it was discovered she had multiple health issues including canine typhus, mange/scabies, a suspected tumor, anemia and otitis. She is currently being treated for her conditions and is boarding at the clinic. Investigations are ongoing into why exactly she cannot walk, why her back legs are paralyzed.
