A Word from Cheech


Hey, guys!  My name is Cheech.  I've been at TIRR Rescue since 2018.

I was left chained up in a backyard with Chong (my rescue people believe Chong is my son), and a nice person put a notice on Facebook about us.  Unfortunately, no one could say exactly where we were.  After several days and some detective work by very persistent RR Rescue people, we were located and on a transport to the TIRR Rescue Ranch.

Chong and I hadn't had the best care, though you would never know it from our attitude.  We love everyone and just want to have fun!  After being left alone for so long, we have a lot of "people time" to make up for!

My rescue people to me to the vet, who said I had something called "heartworm."  I am currently on treatment for my heartworm and spending my time in a foster home.  I've been doing really well in the foster home and have calmed considerably since being with some doggie playmates in a real home.
