I posted asking about small breeds the other day and was supposed to go look at a handsome little chihuahua named Buddy.Well Buddy was adopted before I could get there so I continued my search.I found an ad stating Chi mixes for adoption.I emailed the woman who had posted the site and she told me the puppies were rescued.Well she sent pictures and one was a little white female that was just precious.We travelled to the home the puppies were being fostered at today.When we got their the puppies were in a little pen playing around and jumping on each other.I picked up the little white female and she had no intrest in me or my daughter.So we just waited and played with the puppies for a while then this little scruffy male came running up to us like ok time to go home.His name is Antonio(neo for short).He is 8 weeks old and the sweetest thing.He even tolerates the energy of my two year old daughter.I am so excited!!!!!I added the link for the pics in case ya'll wanted to see!
He is absolutely adorable!!! Congratulations on your adoption! We are getting ready to adopt a little female Beagle/Pug mix from a shelter. She won't be old enough to come home until March 27th. That actually gives us plenty of time to make sure we have everything we need. I'm glad that you found a puppy that seems very comfortable with your little one.
I agree, catlover, it would have been better if I had adopted an adult, puppies are much easier for them to find homes for. We had been wanting to get a puppy from a breeder when we decided what kind to get, but decided instead to find a puppy in a shelter. We actually weren't expecting to find one so young at the shelter when we started out search for a small dog under a year, but saw her and fell in love. If we get one in the future it will be something older.
