I am 72 yrs old and have always wanted a chihuahua. We have always had small dogs that we rescued and for years had 2 or 3 at a time. We are now down to a 10 yr old minpin/terrier mix who is diabetic and blind. Need advice as to whether or not getting a puppy is a good idea. It has been a long time since we had one. I would not mind a rescue but have been u successful in finding anything close to what I want. I have loved every dog we have ever had, but none of them have ever been chosen by me.
