William DeVry and his girlfriend Rebecca Staab have managed to see the light at the end of the tunnel after what has been a very difficult week for the couple. The soap opera stars have announced that they’ve welcomed their hearts and their home to a pet in need after the devastating loss of their own dog, a Chihuahua named Chalupa passed away.
Rebecca shared the heartbreaking news with her fans on social media. “What a week,” Staab wrote. “Our precious little Chalupa was fatally hit by a car. I immediately flew back to LA from Vancouver.”
Luckily, Rebecca received a phone call from the Dhana Metta Rescue Society in Vancouver asking if she could bring home a puppy that was in desperate need of a good home. For Rebecca, she knew the timing was just right.
She wrote, “I knew it was the right thing to do to keep Chalupa’s energy moving forward.”
The dog, Roo, has deformed legs and is in need of surgery. Rebecca flew the pup from Vancouver to Los Angeles to give him all of the tender, love, and care he needs.
Rebecca continued, “Roo had SO MUCH FUN at our house! He is SO sweet and so happy! This little-deformed boy is filled with such bountiful joy and love, in spite of his physical restrictions and previous treatment by humans. He played with our dogs who had been so somber, sad and missing Chalupa.”
