Might Be Getting a Dog :)

September 3rd, 2009, 06:05 PM
Actually, 2! I contacted the rescue that I got my Mom's dog from, and asked her if she by chance knew of any Chihuahuas or similar small dogs that were in need of a home. She and her hubby mulled over it, and offered me two of the young dogs they have in foster :D

Max is a 1 1/2 year old purebred papered Chihuahua. He's solid black and only about 5lbs. Hala is almost 1 year old (born Christmas day), a mix (I think she's a schnauzer/chihuahua mix, or chi/something mix). She has a hair lip, and was bottle raised (like 3 of my cats were). She's about 10 lbs at the most, solid black with terrier like hair. I met her when I picked up Sadie (Hala is a sweetheart). They are seriously bonded and will need to go together.

So, I am talking to the landlord about getting two pups to train as medic alert dogs. Hubby isn't sure about it (he's worried about space, but I am willing to purge my junk to make way for them). So, if all goes well we will have two new pups at the end of this month :D

The best thing is that both dogs love Sadie, and Sadie loves them :) So they will have wonderful playtimes together :)

So, please keep positive vibes going for us, this is an opportunity of a lifetime for us!

The best of luck to you! I hope you can bring them home. I'm sure the room should not be an issue. From your description, they are small dogs so they may not need a whole lot of space.

How exciting!

Thats great news. You sound really excited, I would be too!!
You will have to post pics once you get them, I love Chi's!!! :lovestruck:

Thank you :D I am very excited! I had a Chi years ago, she was my very first dog (one that I chose for myself). I've wanted another since she passed away at the age of 17 yrs. These two are sweet, and I am hoping everything will fall into place! :lovestruck: :pray: :fingerscr :goodvibes:

:fingerscr that it works out!

Thanks for going to a rescue and considering a bonded pair. They are so hard to place usually and it's that special someone that is willing to do so.

Best of luck that everything goes as planned.

Thanks everyone! I am keeping my fingers crossed that it works out :) They are both very sweet little dogs, and I think they will fit exactly what I've been searching for for more than 5 years now :) I know it will work out, I have a deep feeling in my gut ;) Even though Gary is thinking "Yeah, right", lol, I know it will :D :fingerscr :goodvibes: :fingerscr

Well, I've talked it over with many people, talked to the Residency Tenancy board and the rescue. I told the rescue that I do want them both, so we are aiming for the end of this month :D

Looks like things are going good here :D :D :D :D
