This is Hercules, a 5-year-old Chihuahua, who likes to think he’s much larger than what he is—a phrase some small dog owners refer to as LMS, little man syndrome.
Hercules here decided to pick on his bigger sister; and, unfortunately for him, it didn't turn out in his favor. Poor Hercules ended up at the vet, after hours, with a large laceration to his chest. Luckily all Hercules needed was an overnight observation, fluids, and a bandage.
Hercules’ mom is a single mom with a limited income and was not expecting this fight. His mom said in her application, "Hercules has and will ALWAYS be my best friend,” so we were happy to help with his care and are happy to report that he's on the road to recovery!
