A brief re-introduction of sorts, this is my story.
I have wanted a chihuahua for years. I haven't been in the position to get one for one reason or another. I have been in the right living, and financial, position for the past 3 years. I just knew that the right dog would come to me. I have had many near misses with becoming a chihuahua owner. Everyone was heartbreaking when it fell through.
I volunteer at the animal shelter locally here. We never EVER get chis. Maybe one every few months, and they are always adopted right away. I was cruising around on petfinder, and I spotted a really cute one. He was at the shelter I volunteer at and I nearly fell out of my chair! I figured I'd give it a day and surely he would be adopted. I even drove twice to see him, just to turn back each time. Today, almost without any thought, I got in my car and just WENT. On the way I called and asked if he was still there. The lady said "amazingly yes". He is now mine! He goes to get fixed tomorrow, then I get him tomorrow afternoon.
Here is a picture for reference. It's a shelter picture, so it doesn't show how truly adorable he is. His age is estimated at 11 years. He was left in the dropbox with no info!! Poor guy. They had his name as "Pulga". I'm going to change it, since they had no info, and he doesn't respond to it anyway. He is very laid back, friendly, and gets along with other dogs, even big ones. I cried when I held him, cried when I called my boyfriend about him, cried when I wrote the check... it was a sorry scene! But I am so happy there are no words. My birthday (which was Jan 26th) was the worst I have had, and it's just been downhill from there. I desperately needed something like this to brighten me up! I just can't wait to get him home!
