I just joined found this forum, I've been on tazchi.com for about 2 years. I've posted this question as well but have recieved very little feedback on the question. I have 4 chis, the most recent was an adopted one from a Corpus Christi, shelter. She was found running down a highway a few days before I adopted her. Anyways the poor thing had kennel cough, infested with fleas,worms, and malnourished, I was sold, but was also told she was in good health prior to the drive ( I live in San Antonio) I immediately took her to the emergency vet to be treated for everything, I had planned on introducing her immediately to my other dogs, but upon learning of kennel cough I realized I could not. So about 600 dollars later that I hadn't been prepared to spend . On top of that I was staying with my parents ( waiting on house to be built)who also had animals and realized, so I checked into a hotel room with my husband, armed with flea dip and exhausted fro the day. Due to the amount I spent when I first got her, I was unable to get her spayed immediately, which I am a huge fan of and always preach about. After three weeks of having her, her keenel cough had cleared up and she was happily amongst the rest of the herd, and then she goes into heat. Chewy my youngest male,a gift from my sister about 2 months prior ( she had bought him , but her terrier thought he was bait, so I took him) had not been fixed as well. Youi can imasgine what happened next. I came home one day to find them stuck together. I immediately seperated them from one another ( right after they were unstuck) Chewy may have been a one hit wonder but he was lucky, last week, Christ gave birth to 2 boys and one girl. I have found what I belive to be one awesome home for one of the boys. So here is where I need your help, and please excuse for the long entry, but I don't want anyone thinking I am a backyard breeder breeding for profit or just to simply" witness the miracle of life". I despise people like that. This was her first and last litter. So far here are the questions I have compiled to screen people with. Any other comments or recommendations would be wonderful, thanks.:

Have you ever owned a chi? If so what happened to them?
Any small children?
Is everyone in your household ok with having a puppy?
What is your method of potty training?
Will the chi be strictly inside/ outside, or both?
Any other animals currently in household? If so provide vet reference.
Where will ch go when you're on vacation?
Where will he sleep?
Are you prepared to have at least one of your favorite things chewed to pieces?
What type of flea and heartworm preventitive do you use or plan on using?
All adoptive parents will have to sign spay/ neuter agreement and submit papers when it is complete.

Thank you to all those replied and for the warm welcome! I have cut various articles out from dog magazines that I tend to site from on the "puppy packet" and I also intend to make a baby book of each pup.I know it sounds crazy, bbut oh well ... I think better tobe a fanatic about animals then to not care enough. To: P&J I will take you up on that , but I've been having problems with my new email service. You know the pups did the most adorable thing the other day: When Christi ( mom of pups) was out exercising, the largets boy started nursing on his sister's ear. It was so cute!!
