Sammy the Chihuahua

Puppy Breed: Chihuahua

Sammy's mom says: Sammy joined our family soon before Christmas. We recently lost our dearest furry friend, but Sammy quickly filled the gap in our home and hearts. Despite his tiny size (three pounds at 15 weeks), Sammy has a big heart with lots of love to give to anyone he meets, man or beast. Sammy is a quick learner and enjoys any challenges we give him, which makes training so much easier. His favorite toy is an IQube puzzle -- he sticks his whole head inside the cube trying to dig the little toys out. After he's exhausted from play and exercise, it's time for a long nap with lots of puppy dreams. Sammy usually prefers to sleep alone in a peaceful spot. Most nap interruptions result in a dirty look, huff, and puppy backside. Sammy has a great personality and we look forward to watching him grow into a handsome dog.
