From Tara of Cerritos, CA

Hello! My name is Tara and I adopted Teddy from a wonderful rescue group called Mutts N Stuff Small Dog Rescue. I already had a 3 year old Chihuahua named Gia and I felt like she needed a companion. I searched on Petfinder for a while and when I saw the picture of Teddy, I knew I had to have him! What I didn't look at was where he was located... 60 miles away from where I used to live! It didn't matter so I contacted the group and they said that he would be at an adoption event at a Petco in Temecula and that it was a first com, first serve basis. I did what any insane person would do and drove at the crack of dawn on the day of the adoption and literally got there before Petco even opened. I sat and waited with Gia and my little brothers and once the adoption group arrived, she knew it was me immediately from having talked on the phone. I got to meet Teddy and all the other adoptable dogs and I wanted to take them all home! Including the adorable 3 legged Chihuahua. I got to meet Teddy's brother Eddy and wanted to adopt him too but they wouldn't let me. I cried because Eddy looked like he knew he wasn't being adopted by me when I held him because I knew that I was there to adopt Teddy. They let me adopt him but he had to get neutered first so I had to go back to pick him up in a week. Ever since then he has been the most wonderful dog in the world! He loves everybody and loves being held like a baby! Now that he has grown a bit I think he may be a Chihuahua Corgi because he has tiny little legs (at first he looked like a full chihuahua- his mom was a Chihuahua, they didn't know who the dad was) I'm so glad that I adopted him and thank you Petfinder for helping me find him!
