Who’s 11 years old, 3 lbs of sass and packs a major media punch? That would be the queen bee of the other K clan, Chloe Kardoggian! You might have heard of her. As PeoplePets Instagram reality star to watch, Chloe’s adorable bug eyes and permanently exposed tongue (she only has 2 teeth) have charmed over 70,000 loyal followers. She’s a rescued, senior Chihuahua, a tough breed to place as seniors, and Chloe aims to help change all that. She is driving home the message of adopting seniors, and dispelling the stereotype that Chihuahuas aren’t funny, fun-loving, energetic and sweet dogs, all through her cuteness overload pics and witticisms about fashion, beauty and how hard it is to get good human help these days. Read on to discover a giving gift she’s created and the super adorable items you can win in our giveaway!
Chloe’s just released something new!
Just in time to spread holiday cheer and help some very needy and deserving dogs, Chloe and mom, Dorie Herman, have released the chloe kardoggian 2016 calendar. It benefits Foster Dogs NYC’s Fospice Program, which provides end-of-life comfort and care to a homeless terminally ill/elderly dogs, and every penny made from the sale of this calendar goes to this cause.
“I was immediately drawn to the idea of Fospice when I heard about it through Foster Dogs NYC,” shared Dorie. “Many dogs are discarded simply because they’re ‘too old’ or because their owners die and they have nowhere else to go, so they are handed over to shelters. These loving companions deserve a home, no matter how much time they have left, and Foster Dogs NYC Fospice gives them everything they need to do so – they find a home, give the rescue money to cover care and also provide a variety of creature comforts, like a new dog bed, and gifts like a photo shoot with the animal to make it a wonderful experience for all.”
Each calendar month not only features a great Chloe pic from some celebrated dogtographers, but also highlights a fospice dog helped, with a bit of their backstory. Some have come from some pretty harrowing existences, and knowing the rest of their lives were or will be good warms the heart. Senior Cocker Spaniel mix, Beau, was rescued from a hoarder in Korea, where he lived with 2,000 other animals. Once he was brought to NYC, Foster Dogs found him an incredible Fospice home in the Upper West Side, with another dog and three cats. His terminal heart condition doesn’t stop his love for life. Daisy, the 12 year old “Elderbull,” was saved from an abusive home, where she was used for breeding puppies. Her body was in terrible shape. Foster Dogs found her a permanent home with another dog, and she lives happily in the heart of the East Village. Fluffy, the 14 year old Miniature Poodle, was rescued in early-2015 in terrible condition. Her veterinarian predicted that she would not last six months, due to renal failure. Amazingly, she lived longer than anyone predicted; she’s spoiled rotten in her loving home on Long Island.
Funds, like those raised from Chloe’s calendar, allow Foster Dogs NYC to continue to do their amazing, life-saving work. And, at $35.00 each, they’re perfect for gifts for your Chihuahua-loving, senior dog-loving or just plain, all-around dog-loving friends!
Feast your peepers on these Chloe snaps from her calendar and her Instagram page, and tell me you wouldn’t want to gaze at that cutie pie, fabu face next year! She’s a wonderful reminder that there can be a silver lining for other homeless, senior dogs this holiday season. #AGivingGift
