dear famous chihuahua®
this is the story of my 8 year old rescue chihuahua chica. she has changed my life for the better, but she would have never come into my life if our other dog had not passed away. the brighter side to this is that even though chica came at a price, I am so glad I was there to take her in and give her a home. she was rescued from the tri county animal rescue that saved her before she was to be put down. I have 3 rescued dogs from this shelter, 2 are chi-mixed.
spread the word, get your chihuahua a “save a life, adopt a shelter pet dog t-shirt!”
chica loves cheese, pickles and black licorice. she also perks up when she hears any toy that squeaks! She sings on command, but cannot carry a tune and is an obsessive licker, but only with me. She will lick you for as long as you let her. She has eaten holes in my favorite blanket, it’s a wool blanket that she thinks is her woobie. As soon as I take out the woobie to take a nap she runs and gets under it for a good and well deserved nap.
When I got Chica from the shelter, she hated almost every human she saw. When I got her home, it took about 6 hours of being growled at, snarled at, and even bit often to get my point across I was not threat. Yes I know you are supposed to let them come to you. The woman over the shelter told me that when she took in Chica, she didn’t see her for 2 weeks, that she hid from her the whole time. I didn’t want that for her.
