Hi My Name is Kim and my Chihuahua is Pea.
I was looking for a small dog that would sit on my lap. I checked into yorkies and chihuahuas. My husband and i went to several pet stores looking for just the right dog for me and although they had plenty of puppies I never found the one that I wanted or should I say the one that wanted me.
I looked up breeders on both breeds and of course there were none close to where I lived.
I finally checked craigslist where I had never been before I found a foster home for dogs only 15 minutes from my home. I called and learned that they had a couple of small dogs. My husband and I set up an appointment.
When we arrived I saw a small mocha colored chi. I looked at my husband and said that is what I am looking for.
The lady put Pea in my arms and apparently I was what Pea was looking for. The lady explained that she had been a puppy mill breeder dog and was 5 years old.
I didn’t care that she wasn’t a puppy she was cuddled in my arms.
We took her to our vet who gave her her shots and noticed her stomach area was very tender he said she should be spayed. When they went to spay her they found that her uterus was filling with pus and there was a sign of infection he did a hysterectomy on my little Pea.
It took two long weeks for my Little Pea to heal.
Now she is a healthy happy Chihuahua and the love of my life she follows me everywhere and I do mean everywhere.
Thank you so much for taking the time to Read Pea’s story if you are looking for a Chihuahua please consider rescuing one they make great companions. They will love you unconditionally.
