Annie - posted 09/13/2011

From L of Hamilton, AL

Approximately 1 year ago my mother who is retired, decided to get a small dog to keep her company. My young niece e-mailed her a picture of a dog from Petfinder; and we were off!! We came across Annie, a chihuahua, who was thought to be about 10 years old, and toothless. After viewing her profile, we knew Annie was the one. We drove approximately 100 miles to pick up Annie, we discovered Annie was a breeder dog who had apparently been dropped out and hit by a car. One of her hips/back leg had been broken (but she runs like the wind, holding the leg up); her bottom jaw broke and she was toothless. Annie is extremely scared of men and doesn't like children. Fast forward one year and Annie is a spoiled, happy, well-loved little dog, that still has issues, but will spend the rest of her life in the arms of her forever family! Thank you Fairy Dogmother!!
