All in the Family



Sissy's story is probably similar to a lot of rescue dogs, but nevertheless, it deserves to be told. Sissy was abandoned by her owners at a vet after refusing to pay for services provided by that vet. She was taken in by Franklin, TN's Critter Calvary organization and after neutering and teeth cleaning, given a good home. But the owner returned her, stating that Sissy was too cloying. In the meantime, I'm looking for a Jack Russell terrier on and one Sunday afternoon, I see her face. Although I continued to search the many canine faces throughout the site, her face haunted me. Within 30 minutes, I had zapped off an email. The Monday I went to pick up Sissy, I was a bundle of nerves, as I was afraid that she wouldn't like me, but I walked into that room, picked her up and cuddled her without thinking. Sissy licked my hand on the way home and that night, she slept on my chest. We bonded very quickly, as we surely needed each other. Sissy is 8# of blond Chihuahua with a sharp mind and keen instincts. She is extremely intelligent, but make no mistake, there is still a lot of puppy left in her who loves to play. She enjoys her treats and biscuits and lots of belly scritchles.

Thanks for sharing your story and rescuing this sweet little pup. I never thought I'd end up with a Chihuahua either, but aren't they the best?

Sissy is very cute, and it sounds like you were tailor made for each other, perhaps there was some divine intervention going on there.

Sissy, you found your Mom and I'm so happy. I live with four Chihuahuas. My last rescue, Nino, appx. 12 yrs. is actually 1/2 chichi and 1/2 Jack Russell and he adores me. Anyhow, before I make a fool of myself, just tell Mom the more she knows you, the more she'll realize that Chihuahuas are very human like canines. Wish you could play with my Pack, but I'm in NY and you're down South, but not of the border. And let's not forget you were born on Valentine's Day.... that makes you an Aquarian, like me.
