Vespa the Mixed Breed


Dog Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund

Howdy from Texas! I'm Vespa and I'm named after the scooter since I have just two wheels and I sorta scoot along. My two-colored eyes and ample ears got my mom's attention on Petfinder.com and she adopted me through the amazing rescue group, Chihuahua Rescue & Transport out of Dallas, Texas. I'm most likely a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix, and I was born without front paws. I have little chicken wings though (my mom calls them my angel wings) that I use to army crawl or if I need more speed I hop like a bunny (there have been kangaroo comparisons). I get around just fine so no need for sympathy! I want so badly to be pals with my new sister, Thriller the cat, and my Vespa charms have finally worn her down so we now rumble and play (no snuggling though--yet). I love car rides, soft grass and my red headed doggie friend, Ellie. Something about my ears can stop passers-by in their tracks and my mom jokes that she has to fold them in so they'll fit in my carrier. And since I hear so well, I've heard talk of me getting my own set of wheels!
