Since these two are inseparable, I will do them together. Chumley I got from a family trying to get rid of him outside the grocery. He's a chi mix with possibly Basenji. The family didn't speak very good English, but I guess what they didn't like was his talking. He is a very vocal dog and I think they were trying to beat the talking out of him. He is scared of everything, though he's getting much better. It took about 6 months to convince him he was allowed in the house. I usually had to go outside and herd him in. Now, he hesitates if I'm trying to get them all in the house until I turn away, then he runs in as fast as he can. If I'm not by the dog door, he goes in and out no problem. He has the loosest joints I have ever seen. Just running around the backyard his hip came out of socket. I was able to get it back in no problem. Even his front legs are loose. The vet has looked at him a few times and has no idea what's wrong. Xray came back no Leggs-Perthe disease and his hip socket looks deep enough. It has to do with his tendons is all she can think of. They are very lax. I have been giving him a lot of excercise but I don't see any improvement. He's my shy little man.

Sherman I found the first time I was walking Chumley. He was 4 months old chiweenie and very interested in two other dogs um, 'having relations', across the street. I finally grabbed him and thought I'd be able to place him as soon as he was fixed bacause he was so cute and young, but no dice. I never got even one call on him. He's now 11 months old and a true characture. He much more dachshund than chi, very stubborn, independant, fearless, and a bit of a clown. He does have a wry face, but that just adds to his charm. It always looks to me that he's smirking.

Those are two lucky fellows....glad to hear Chumley is doing a bit better with the house entrance problem...someone must have given him a good reason not to want to come inside....makes my blood boil when I think of what some of these poor dogs go thru before angels like you find and rescue them....

Pam, they are so adorable! I've only been able to get on CP on my phone, and the pictures don't show good on it. So I have missed seeing all your pretty pictures! They are gorgeous!!!
