Monday, my 11yo daughter's best friend called us to say they are fostering a boy chi. My daughter took off to their house to see him. I called later asking if we could come visit. Her mom said we are adopting him. He was found wandering around and taken to a local shelter. My friend Sylvia went their intending to get her daughters another kitten. She went in and told them she had a 9yo chi and 1 cat so far. They told her about Bruno. He apparently had been tied up outside. His neck is bare where a collar or chain was too tight. He is heartworm positive and covered in tick & mosquito bites. The shelter said they would pay to have him neutered and his heartworm treatment. Sylvia told them she didn't want to fall in love and him die from heartworms. They are pretty confident that the treatment will work. He is so sweet to every stranger. He just wants love and a family. I told Sylvia that he has probably never had attention before and wants it from anyone who will give it to him. He gave me kisses and sat next to Sylvia just wanting to be petted. They took him to Petco last night to get him a shirt. Their 9yo chi Biscuit gets along fine with him. The look so cute together, she is petite and he has a big build even though he is thin. They are both beige and look like a cute little couple. I am so glad Sylvia found this little guy, she and her girls love chis and all animals. He will be so lucky to have all the love and hopefully will forget whatever happened in his past. The shelter thinks maybe he was tied up outside and used as a stud dog. The previous owners will probably never be found. But his life will hopefully take a turn for the better if they can get rid of the heartworms. Sorry it's so long, I just think Sylvia and her girls are wonderful people to do this for little Bruno.
