I wasn't able to rescue this older dog by myself... I needed help.
On June 11th we will celebrate Hope For Paws' 12th anniversary and I hope you will sign up for getting text messages from me, Loreta, JoAnn and, Katie: www.HopeForPaws.org/Join - it's a NEW service that will ensure that you will NEVER miss a Hope For Paws rescue video :-)
Little Stimpy was so exhausted from living on the streets, but when he saw me getting too close, he bolted! I hope you will enjoy this one and also comment below and let me know your thoughts... do you think the masks are making dogs extra nervous these days?
If you would like to adopt Stimpy, please contact our friends at L.A. Animal Rescue: www.LAAnimalRescue.org
Thank you so much for sharing our videos. By sharing, you are helping us raise awareness all over the world, you are helping us raise funds so we can save more lives, and you are helping us find dogs like Stimpy loving forever homes.
On Thursday (June 11th), I will post another rescue video here: www.HopeForPaws.org
I really appreciate your support!
p.s. I know I should have called him REN (especially because he RAN away from me), but Stimpy sounded like a cuter name to me :-)

    YES! Of course they're frightened of the masks. YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! Also they can't see your face, which they need to read. An approaching predator is their fear. Great Angels doing God's work.

    He looks like a Chico , but Stimpy sounds great also ! Thanks for all the hard work and endless hours you guys give to help and save wonderful animals like Stimpy , it really hurts me to see something so small out there all alone trying to survive as everything is so much bigger then him and also endless threats to his survival, he must’ve been so scared ! This vid really touched me as I lost a few of my best friends to old age and they were chihuahuas and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss them, as they brought joy to me everyday, I really miss the happy dance they used to do by just running around like crazy sorta dragging their behinds and crouching rite in front of me waiting til I rubbed their belly, and I hurt me to see poor Stimpy all alone without the love he so truly needed and deserves, as something so small needed to depend on us for so much and their little hearts can just stop from being to stressed or scared , but they are so much tougher then we usually give them credit for ! God Bless you all that go out and take action to finding all the animals that truly need our help as a lot of them have been wronged by us humans and we need to make things rite and regain their trust again as they give us their all and don’t ask much in return and they way a lot of them have been mistreated by us for no reason other then them trusting us is truly sad !! But Keep up the Great Work and Stay Safe !! 🙏👍

    Ok so i've seen them name a Dog "Garfield" and "Stimpy". Can you stop naming Dogs with Cat names please. I have enough to worry about as it is. Not serious by the way just thought it was a funny coincidence lol.

    1:15 - Yes. My dog KNOWS it's me, but he just eyes me when I wear my mask, until I speak. Once he hears my voice, he's okay. But it's almost like he doesn't recognize me with my mask on!

    his eyes are huuuuuge! i also thought his eyes were fully black, but close up their dark brown. he looked like an alien dog to me at first.

    Awe! 😭 In 1967 my parents were married, when my mom was 18. My mom had a little chiuahua IDENTICAL to Stimpy! She got him as a puppy for Christmas from her grandma (my great-grandma) when she was little & named him Pedro. Her mother (my grandma) told her, "When you grow up and leave home, TAKE HIM WITH YOU!" My parents returned from their honeymoon and mom went to grandma's house to get Pedro. No Pedro🤷 When mom asked grandma where Pedro is, she said, "I TOLD YOU TO TAKE HIM WITH YOU. I took him to the dog pound" 😳 The pound no longer had Pedro. He was a senior dog so they put him down 😢💔🐕 If I send this video to my mom right now, she would cry because he looks just like Pedro😭😭😭💔🐕 Please don't come for my grandma in the comments, I'm very angry about it too but, she passed away 4 years ago at the age of 89 and mom never told me this story until AFTER grandma died because she knew I'd be 😠🤬😡😤

    he looks alot like my old chiuaha peewee..awww I don't get paid for a couple of days but after I get my adulting done and rent paid I'll do my best to donate some cheeseburger money.my mom's birthday is in a day or so and she's a chiuahuah nut basically a crazy chiuaha lady or any dog lady but not a pet hoarder she's actually one of the ladies you'd want to know on your long distance rescues..and she'd fall in love with stimpy in a heart beat.anyway she's always telling me to not get her crap for her bday then gets mad that I do but i.think sending you her bday min for cheeseburgers and whatever for your muttlys is the best gift she'd want..and I still don't have to get her squat..lol we've always had dogs and mom always rescued them but like you I think they rescued her.. anyway I adore your videos and think you guys rock..

    Even a dog understood to comply with the only person NOT wearing a mask. There is no evidence that masks do anything effective. Gloves? You think your hands are contributing to the end of the world? WAKE UP MAN!!! I't's not a big deal . This is a political movement. You'll be fine. Don't be programmable by the government. Be American.

    It absolutely breaks my heart to see so many abandoned dogs, but especially tiny dogs who have no way of protecting themselves from other animals. I have 3 chihuahuas myself and I'd love to take in every single one rescued from the streets. I live in Finland though, but truly, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping all the doggos ❤
