Default Prissy has a new home

After much consideration and lots of frustration I have found Prissy a wonderful and loving new home with children! She and Peanut were just not clicking at all. In fact when I would put Peanut down with her he would cower and cringe away from her and she grew to be almost twice his size. Her favorite thing was to grab him by his halter and drag him down the hallway. And Peanut's personality was changing as well and I didnt know my sweet baby boy. When I made the decision to re home her I came across a story on craigslist of a family who had recently lost their chi baby and was looking for another to add to their family. I spoke with her at length and felt they would make a great family for Prissy! Turns out they are all made for each other! They have a deaf son who absolutely adores Prissy and she is young enough to be trained to alert him of things such as the doorbell or the phone ringing. She has a big back yard to run and play in and wonderful family with lots of love to give her. I couldn't be happier for all of them. And my Peanut is back to his wonderful sweet and gentle self and I promised him it would just always be us. He doesnt like to share mommy and I dont like to share him either. just wondering if anyone else's chi is a loner and doesnt like to have other dogs invade his space? Peanut is my heart and has been with me through so much and I am perfectly happy with him being the one & only furbaby! That just means he gets more spoiled lol

Maybe he is just meant to be your only dog. Then, too, he might like another more submissive pup that wouldn't be so pushy?

It sounds like Prissy needed a job and will be a great service dog. You did the right thing!

Tiny Rheana would just as soon be an only child. She's not bothered by the other dogs she just ignores them. Since I rescue all my chi's are used to strangers with problems coming along from time to time. Rheana was a rescue 14 yrs. ago. As was Pearl(my service dog) and Joey and Shayna. Only Mollie Jo and Vanessa were born and bred at my house.

awww you have a house full and Peanut would never forgive me! He was also a rescue from a terrible abusive home. So he is my one and only and that is fine with me!

I know it's tough, we've unfortunately had to make the same decision once before, but you did the right thing (hugs).

I had a similar experience with my coco who is now 7. When she was 3 I got another female chi who was 10 weeks old. She basically took over and you couldn't even pick her up she snarled and growled. After a few days Coco was not herself her personality changing so much. I decided I didn't want this going on and called the breeder and she agreed to take her back. It was the best decision for all of us and Coco has been a loner dog since and is happy as can be. All her personality traits came back immediately. Guess some dogs are just meant to be the one dog in the family.
