Lenchitas One and Lenchitas Two are twin sisters who have suffered a lot since birth. They were born in a town in Coahuila, Mexico, daughters of a stray dog who gave birth to six puppies. At the age of a month and a half, they were left in a garbage dump. They were spotted by someone and rescued, but were infested with parasites, malnourished, and hypothermic. Sadly, only three survived.
Since their rescue, the twins have been in a municipal shelter where they recovered. They have been spayed, vaccinated, and cared for thanks to a program implemented by a foundation called Second Chance. They are currently eight months old and still waiting to be adopted.
Lenchitas One and Lenchitas Two are a mixed breed of Greek Harehound and will probably not grow much more. They are extremely caring, funny, full of love and very positive.
The only home they have known is a cage, but despite that, they are always happy, playful, and always waiting for the moment to go out to play and have contact with humans and their companions in the shelter.
The Second Chance program normally keeps animals for two months. At that point, if they are not adopted, they are euthanized. They decided to extend that time for Lenchitas One and Lenchitas Two because they never lost their hope of being adopted and knowing what a true home is full of love, patience, care, and dignified treatment. But euthanization is still a possibility for these two beautiful animals if no one is willing to make them a part of their family.
We are looking for a home that wants to adopt both of them together since they are very close, but we are also willing to have them adopted individually. Prior to adoption, interviews and meetings can occur via Skype, Facebook Messenger, Facetime, etc. The adoption application and fee would be finalized prior to transport.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Many of our dogs will receive numerous applications, and we ask for your patience during the process of finding the very best match.
Our dogs are fostered in Texas or Saltillo, Mexico, but available for adoption in the Pacific Northwest.

UPDATE!! We are very happy to report that Lenchitas One and Lenchitas Two have both found their forever homes! Thank you to the families for bringing these deserving dogs into your home.
