Hi Everyone. I'm going to introduce myself to the Chi community! I hope I'll be accepted as a member and can learn many things from the chi experts.

My name is Kenya Banks. I'm 17 years old and I live in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania. I recently bought my first Chihuahua. She is a fawn sable with a black mask. She has short fur and an apple head. My long term boyfriend, soon to be fiance, and I named her Nina. We also have a 7 1/2 month old red nosed pit bull named Sid. My boyfriend and I seem to believe that Nina and Sid are inlove. They are inseperable and cannot be away from each other. Nina always has the zoomies and tries to play tug with pant legs, shoe strings, blankets. Almost anything. I'm going to a Webshots account so I can put pictures in here for everyone to see her. I hope I can become a welcomed member into this group!

Hi and Welcome :hello2:

Glad you found us!
You don't need a Webshots account to post pics here.
You can add them to your post from your own PC as long as they are JPG's and meet the size requirement.

Here are pictures of Nina. Only about an hour or so old. Enjoy!

Sorry they're so big! If you'd like to see some photos of Nina in action, let me know! I just got the hang out of posting pics and getting them from the camera to the computer!

I thought your name rang a bell..... I'm assuming Mike is the one holding Nina?

If you have worked with or recognize any of the names listed
below, please send all of the information you have regarding the

The information is being compiled as part of an investigation
of their activities. You will not be blamed for anything. They have
been acquiring animals of many species and breeds for the last
several years. They do not always claim to be a rescue. These are
not their only "identities" but are ones we can prove.
Please let us know if you have pulled, transported, or
surrendered any animal for or to them, or if you know of anyone else
who has done so, or have any information about animals they have
acquired or tried to acquire.
Please let us know if you believe you have run across any
other identities used by them. They operate in the area in and
around Blair County, PA, and try to get dogs transported to that area
for them. They try to acquire dogs and other animals from PA and
most of the surrounding states, but have even tried to pull from as
far away as Georgia. They surf the shelter sites for out of time
dogs and other message boards for owner surrenders. They have
various stories about who they are and who the dogs are for.
These are the links to 2 dogs she rescued then turned around
and sold. We have no idea what happened to them or where they are.
