Hello! I am an unexpected chihuahua lover - my sister had one before me and I thought she was cute but never was interested in having my own (I have "working/herding" dogs = bigger) until I found Izzi. I found Izzi on my dirt road and never found her original home (I think she might have been dumped off as she was fairly skinny). I live on a horse farm and have bigger dogs and wasn't too sure how a chihuahua was going to work out. Well Izzi won me over with those big eyes that just emanated love - it was a little intense at first but I got used to it! So now I have 2 more chihuahuas - one of which I got from the shelter and he's a special case (definitely has some psychological issues but we love him anyway - Steve Z) and the other is a little girl just over 2 pounds - Lexi. Any way I'm hooked on these little cuddle bugs with the big personalities!
