…. does little chip want a belly rub? oh yes he does! … “rub my belly mommy, rub my belly!”
let the truth be told. if more people adopted a chihuahua, there would be less chihuahuas put down every year. my name is nancy mcgovern and chip is my beautiful, 3 year old, 7 pound, brown, full breed rescue chihuahua chip. his story of strength, kindness and unconditional love will inspire you.
chip was abandoned by his previous owner and found locked in a in a dark closet in a bird cage laying in his own pee and excrements with no food or water. after adopting chip, it took a while for him to adjust and get healthy again. he is okay now, but during the night he suffers from nightmares and post traumatic stress from the memories of the abuse he lived through.
chip needs constant love, support and encouragement. at night, he will start to wine if he realizes i am not close by and he will not sleep in a room without me. if he falls asleep on the couch and i go to bed without waking him up, he will wake up about an hour later and whine until i enter the room. his little tail will start wagging with relief when i get up and take him back to bed.
chip would rather be with me than eat his food. if i leave the room, he’ll run back and forth from room to room with a bite in his mouth just to check on me, so now i stay in the kitchen until he’s done and i can’t help but chuckle when i see that he eats with one eye watching me.
chip loves all other pets and rarely barks. i eventually want to make him a therapy dog because everyone loves him and even people who have had the tendency to call chihuahuas “rat-dogs”say that they have never met such a sweet and loving dog.
my sweet little chip is the perfect dog in every way, even though he is afraid of my deserting him. he is very well-behaved and well-mannered and so grateful to be loved. it breaks my heart to look into his sad loving eyes and know that he was once badly abused. no pet should have to experience such neglect. if you can’t afford to take care of a pet and understand that it is a long-term responsibility, then you shouldn’t have a pet at all.
chip is truly my angel from god. i look into his sweet eyes, and tell him everyday that he will never be alone again. i love my chihuahua!
