A friend of ours that tailgates with us breeds chis. Our tailgate mascot is my kids 1/2 brother. Well 2 years ago he brought some of the pups to be socialized and this lil pup followed my husband everywhere. I was like NO WAY! I refuse to pay for a dog, I do rescue, I HATE CHIS, Huly will kill her she is so small, We have 2 dogs 2 cats, etc etc well after the game our friend gave BG to my husband. I said finally if Huly approves she can stay. I fell head over heels for her quickly and Huly never hurt her.

The following year BG's parents had another litter and no one wanted this one last pup. Our friend text me these cute puppy photos for 2 weeks. I kept saying NO! 3 dogs and 2 cats were pleanty. I walked into work one day and a coworker lost his 10 year old lab. I started thinking Sadie is 13 Gibbs is 8, Nala is 17 and Huly is 10. BG will have no one to grow up with. So I told him to bring him over and if they got a long he could stay. Well a year later he is still here LOL

I started looking for a chi about a year before I got Toby. I was looking for a responsible breeder. I knew I wanted a short hair male puppy- other than that I didn't care, although I liked whites and creams.

I found Toby's breeder. My mom and I drove almost 2 hours each way to see the two little boys she had. They were both short hair but I immediately felt connected to Toby. His name was Bear at the time. He was friendly and outgoing. The other puppy seemed much more nervous.

I left that day after depositing for Toby. I brought him home about a month later

Then, 5 months later, my mom brought home Rocky from the same breeder.

I got Crackers in May of this year from a lady who had a chi in the past that died and got Crackers thinking she was ready for another but she wasn't. She posted on our county Facebook page for pets saying she was going to put him down if he wasn't taken that day. I called her and went to go get him. I am glad I did, he was infested with fleas and very scared of people. When I got him, she didn't tell me his name, age or anything. I straight away to him to get a flea bath and buy him things. After that he's been part of our family!

I kind of got Edie from the Internet. Well, from a breeder who advertises on the Internet. I replied to her advert, and we went to visit the litter when they were six weeks old. Edie looked at me, bit my finger, and I said "we'll have this one!".

Two weeks later, I got the train to the breeder's house, and took Edie home. It was only an hour away, but it felt like a million miles, I was so worried about how she was doing in her little travel crate.

My first chi (25 years ago) was a chi/poodle cross from one of our customers! Absolutely fell in love with him, he was a "baby!'" He loved being cuddled! Well, time goes by, dogs come and go, and hubby said no more dogs! Making a long story short - I got Angel from Craigs list. I didn't want a show quality, but I did want one that was friendly, social, cuddly, etc. Angel came from a home where their chis just had like 2 or 3 pups and they were selling them. I knew he was not for me, his father was mean! (seriously) But hubby insisted. Well, two years later, and lots of hard work on MY part, he is . . .not perfect, but . . .he is super smart and is becoming closer and closer to an Angel!!
The family we got him from truly loved their dogs! You could hear the affection in their voice! I am grateful that he is smart and willing to change!

She ended up dying and Was the saddest thing iv had to go threw, I never got my money back and I'd only had her for a week. So that was a bad experience. But now iv got another chi, and she only cost me 300 and she is healthy n happy. And I got her from a breeder closer to me.

Oh my gosh! I can't imagine, that must have been absolutely heart breaking.
I was so worried because I wasn't spending so much on a puppy, and one that no one else seems to want. This story does make me feel better about not being able to spend very much.
I'm so sorry about your puppy! **Hugs**

Lol, you're not an idiot, you're normal.
That's so awesome that it turned out well though! It seems like almost every ad I've come across is a scam

I'm going to have to go look for pictures of your guys puppies!

Frida came from the shelter! We walked in and said: "We want a dog less than 20 pounds and good with cats!" First they brought us a huge Shih-Tzu mix, who we really liked, but was definitely not under 20 pounds. Then they brought out our Frida (then Bella) and put her, shivering, into my partner's arms. Frida gave a kiss and my partner knew she was ours. I took a little more convincing, because I'd never had a Chihuahua and only knew the stereotype of them as yappy, snappy little terrors, but obviously, I came around, and we brought her home that day!
