Ever since we got to our new apartment, my partner, Gayl, has been bugging me to get another dog so our princess, Angel, would not be left all alone at home while we are at wok. She’s actually such a good dog and is used to being home alone without any surprises when we get home.
Every week she would bug me and sometimes I would think about it while searching for possible candidates. I had a lot of requirements before I would say yes;
- I’d rather we adopt a rescue, or rescue one from going to the pound
- I definitely want a small breed that’s low maintenance, meaning not much shedding or grooming (so another pomeranian is moved to the back of my list though Gayl wanted another Angel)
- I am partial to a full grown dog because we didn’t have the time to potty train a puppy, but only up to about 2-3 years old. We still want it to grow old with Angel
- Hypo allergenic, like a yorkie, shit-zu or maltese or any small poodle mix.
The next day, I was again looking at the internet for dogs when this one particular dog stood out. A 2 year old long haired Chihuahua was being sold at a ridiculously low price. Problem is the owners are from Elie, Manitoba. To cut the long story short, we dared to go out of our comfort zone, traveled outside of Winnipeg, to see if this dog would like us and Angel (i believe that dogs choose their humans), and he was adorable! We fell in love with him immediately.
