2 dogs covered in blue glue continue to recover


The two Chihuahuas that were covered in blue plumber's glue and abandoned in a north Nashville home are still in the care of Metro Animal Control.

A veterinary staff is slowly working to remove the glue, which investigators believe was painted on by unknown persons.

Officials at Animal Control say they're soaking the two female dogs in warm water every day, which seems to be working to remove the glue, but the dogs still have a lot of the glue on them.

Hundreds of people have called Animal Control to inquire about adopting the two dogs, now named Opal and Sapphire, and also to offer solutions that might help remove the glue.

The Chihuahuas were found in a home on 10th Avenue North on January 29 by the owner of an abandoned house. They were covered in blue plumber's glue and evidence indicates someone used a paint brush or dabber.

The glue then hardened, leaving the animals hurt and helpless.

One of them also had a bad gash on its side.

Cruelty Investigator Billy Biggs said he's still following up on the case, but says there are very few leads to go on.

There have still been no calls about who the dogs may have belonged to before the incident.

Originally veterinarians believed it would be four to six weeks before they would be ready for adoption.

They may be a little behind schedule because there is still so much glue on their fur.
