Too Cute for the Streets! Chihuahua Pair Found Wandering Boston Now up for Adoption at the MSPCA-Angell

Organization Thanks Boston’s Animal Control Officer for Getting “McDreamy” and “Meredith Grey” to the Shelter

BOSTON, Nov. 8, 2019 – If only dogs could speak our language we might just now how two adorable three-year-old Chihuahua mixes were found wandering the streets of Boston before a Good Samaritan brought them to the animal control office in Roslindale, before they were transferred to the MSPCA-Angell’s Jamaica Plain facility.

The dogs are technically strays as they arrived with neither identification tags nor microchips and, seven days on, no one has claimed them.

Now named “McDreamy” and “Meredith Grey,” the dogs are friendly and social, and should do well in just about any kind of home.  McDreamy, named for his flowing white and brown coat, is male while Meredith Grey, the female, has a shorter tan coat.

Neither dog has been spayed or neutered, and those surgeries are scheduled for next week.

“It feels unlikely to us that they could not have had a home, but no one has called about them so our focus is on finding a wonderful and caring home for the pair,” said Anna Rafferty-Arnold, associate director of the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center.

The pair’s mandatory seven day stray hold expired on Wednesday, Nov. 6 and Rafferty-Arnold and her team would love to keep the duo together if at all possible.

“We’re housing them separately in adjacent runs just to give them some space but it’s clear they love each other as there is a lot of jumping for joy when we take them out for walks together,” she joked.

A veterinary and behavior check turned up no concerns and despite knowing very little about where they came from, staffers at least know where they are headed.  “We know the perfect adopter is out there and we look forward to providing these guys a safe and secure future,” said Rafferty-Arnold.

Adopters Wanted!

Anyone interested in adopting the pair can email with questions or come in for a visit during open hours.
