Hello everyone,

I am new here and new to owning a chihuahua. I brought my Scout home three weeks ago from the shelter I work at. She is 9 months old and probably a chihuahua mix. She is joining my pit/lab mix and my two cats (plus many foster kittens and the occassional rescue dog). She is such a sweetheart. Very smart and gentle, but also mischevious and quite the chewer!!

Here she is. She looks like a miniature german shepherd.


Funny face!!


Cuddling and playing with her new kitty brother, Scooter. They are pals and partners in crime!



Waving!!


With her temporary siblings: Piper is a rescue chi who stayed with us for a week. He has been severely neglected and is literally skin and bone. We fattened him up a bit before he went to his new foster home. And Josie is a silly foster kitten who is going to her new home on Friday. And Scout gets along with everyone.


I am going to make Scout a therapy dog because she has the perfect personality for it. Scooter is going to be her partner because he is an inspirational disabled kitty.

Hello and welcome! Scout is a handsome chi. Kudos to you for adopting him and giving him a loving, forever home.

Thank you for fostering other dogs and cats too.

Thank you!

Thank you for all the nice comments about Scout. Not only is she my first chi, she is my first small dog. I've never had a dog under 50 lbs before (except for a cocker that was 30 lb). So this is all new to me. I will probably have many questions in the future...
