Pinto Bean the ChihuahuaI had wanted a new black and white chihuahua baby and looked every place I could to find one but couldn’t.

One evening about 2 weeks ago my husband and our son went for coffee at their usual place about 7 in the evening and (by the grace of God) there was the most beautiful deer head chihuahua just wandering around.

He followed them into the quick stop, continued to follow my son, and nobody who worked there or anybody shopping there had any idea where he came from or who his owner was, so my new deer head chi, Pinto Bean came home with them!!!

My husband took him to our vet and his chip was not registered. We called the phone number on his tag and it was disconnected. So he took him to a no kill shelter for help and the man in charge said he could not get any more info on Pinto Bean, just that he was bought in NJ (we live in TX).

He offered to put Pinto up for adoption for a donation of $100 but my husband brought Pinto Bean back home. We made fliers that only gave our phone number and only said “IF YOU HAVE LOST A HOUSE PET, PLEASE CALL THIS NUMBER AND DESCRIBE”. Didn’t want just anybody to claim him, only an owner would know the lost house pet.

There has been no response and now Pinto Bean has his new fur-ever home with me, the devoted owner  and 3 other chis and 1 rescue terrier mix.

Pinto is very happy, has a full tummy all the time, never thirsty anymore, sleeps in bed under the covers, has his new vet to take care of him and all the Bark Box toys and snacks he wants.

I believe my Pinto Bean was sent to me by God, Now I am not ready for a tiny black and white chi puppy, we have Pinto to love……….

This is Skeeterbug. He was donated by a breeder to his Dad for a service dog. This little chi is awesome. His Dad has been in the hospital a lot and Skeeterbug stays with his Dad until he goes in for a procedure.

Thank you, Cathy for the post. He is beautiful. Pinto Bean is the perfect deer head Chihuahua and he is so well behaved, like this morning when I was busy and was also hearing a racket going on in the mud room and also a bit of a whimper. I decided to check out the whimper and there was my sweet William whimpering because he wanted to go into the mud room with Pinto and BO but was afraid. The action in the mud room was just a total mess. They had torn down the curtains to the back door. They were using the curtains to play tug of war, and had found a card board box to rip up. WHAT A MESS! I said, "Now you listen to me, who did this?" and I had 4 sets of chi eyes and 1 set of terrier mix eyes looking at me so innocently and saying, "WE DID NOT DO THIS, A STRANGER BROKE IN AND DID THIS!" Such innocent faces!!! How could I ever punish them for just playing.

That's funny Dixie! I have this scheduled on Facebook tomorrow morning so I'll send you the link to that.

Hope you don't mind that I edited this a little.
