I should say my Otis found me lol. I have a friend who was telling me about her friend who's dog got out and got pregnant and she had puppies. I have always been a cat person (still am I have 5) she was saying that she could not afford to keep them all or even get their shots and she was going to take them to the pound and my heart skipped a beat I was on a mission to save them. I met the friend of my friend and I picked up Otis and he looked up at me with such sweet eyes and licked me on the cheek. I was his right then and there lol. I did help get the others homes and we still keep in touch with the other siblings I always believe everything happens for a reason and I am so glad that this reason was Otis. I never knew how much I could love my little guy. Don't get me wrong I love my cats dearly but I guess with Otis it's just puppy love lol

I found Chloe from a breeder online. We talked on the phone, emailed, and texted. She sent me multiple pictures and seemed very knowledgable. I had a good feeling about the breeder. But I paid for Chloe through PayPal and my credit card. That way I had two different ways to dispute the charge if she wasn't an honest breeder. We drove 4 hours to get Chloe and she was perfect!

hubby and I were looking for a female, black, deer head because he doesn't like apple heads (I love both, chis are all beautiful) and found a couple outside the city then we found a breeder with a litter in Vienna and made an appointment, we loved them all (4puppies and the mom) instantly, they were less than 2 weeks old.

Puppies are all cute but we made the decision because of the breeders (husband and wife) they were so open, helpful and informative. Everything was perfect, we visit them 2 times a week and we saw them all grow, 4 beautiful puppies but we chose 2 (female and male) since the 1st day. It was hard to leave the other 2, but they had homes also already.

We adopted Zara from a family a few blocks from my house. They posted an add online for someone to take the unwanted puppy before she was sent to the pound

So we did

How sweet!
When I was a teenager, a friend of mine had a toy Chihuahua. That dog woud latch on to your pant leg and try to tear it apart. It was funny because he couldn't have been more than a pound and a half, but I never wanted a Chi because of him and all his yappy-ness.
Turns out I fell in love with them too, and she's the most loyal dog we've ever had <3

It took me months to find Gemma, but when I saw her I knew she was meant for me! I saw her ad posted online on a Swedish buyer/trader website where nearly all Swedish breeders post their puppy litters. We phoned the breeder right away and the next day we gave her our deposit for Gemma. The breeder wasn't great, but she wasn't a bad one. She lives in Stockholm and I am still in contact with her on Facebook now, so I like that. Her Chis were family pets and she had bred them several times. She's not KC registered and probably hasn't health tested her dogs. I'd be more picky about a breeder now, but I was eager and not as informed about what makes a breeder reputable before I got Gemma. However, Gemma is PERFECT and I feel so lucky that we found her and got her. I couldn't ask for a sweeter, cuter, better girl.

I went to PetSmart when Save-A-Life had their table set up. The foster mom was seated there with about six assorted dogs on leashes around her. I sat down to see if any would come to me. They all greeted me and moved on at one time or another, but Butterbean came over immediately and stayed. She let me pet her, then hold her, all the while looking at me with those big brown eyes. I certainly wasn't looking for a chihuahua, but her calm, quiet sweetness completely won me over.

First off, hi everyone nice to meet you guys!!!
So we found roxie abandoned and tied to a pole at a dollar store. She was shaking and scared, and everyone kept trying to touch her making it worse. My father tried to find out who left her there and the only clue was a man who tied her up and drove off. So we decided to take her since no one was willing to do so. So when we got home, she tried to hide, she was so scared, but after some food she was letting us touch her.

We had no idea what to do with her, we never had a dog before, so my father wanted to send her to our local shelter, but I refused and I'm glad I did. A few hours later we noticed her scratching a lot, Lo and behold, she had FLEAS!! In desperation (we honestly had no choice due to the stores being closed around that time) we use CAT flea shampoo, I had that because we have a street cat we take care of (really long story there) Even though it was the completely wrong thing to use, it worked and we managed to get the fleas out.

So after that we kept roxie, while trying to contact and find the previous owners ( longer story there) and we have been happy since.
