Carmen's mom says: We're newlyweds and Carmen is our first puppy. She is a Boston terrier / Pomeranian mix. She was rejected from a hybrid breeder, so she ended up at a shelter where we adopted her. Two days later she got very sick and ended up in the hospital for a week, attached to an IV. The doctors weren't sure if Carmen would beat the virus, but miraculously she pulled through. She's a head-strong little fighter. Without her strength, she never would have made it home. Once she got home, she doubled in weight. She has a ferocious appetite and loves eating everything. She also loves people, sitting on laps, and giving lots of kisses. Her best friend is Leroy, an 80-pound German shepherd mix, who she plays with for hours at a time. Carmen loves prancing, jumping, and chasing butterflies. She is so sweet, smart, and full of life. We feel very lucky to have her as part of our family!
