Default Meet Sophia

I realized I haven't given any updates to the chihuahua I was bottle feeding back in September!

One day back in September I was browsing Craigslist and found some woman SELLING 8 day old chihuahua puppies. She said the mom was stolen and she wanted the puppies gone. Luckily I have a very understanding husband, and we met up with her that night.

It was a very sketchy situation, but it was worth it for $75 to get the puppy out of that situation. The woman was feeding her crappy formula from a HUMAN baby bottle which was almost impossible. We made the Leerburg formula and bought a puppy bottle and it made a massive difference when it came to ease of feedings.

I kept her for about 4 days and did around the clock feedings. My mom and sister picked her up a few days later over the weekend to continue with feedings... they fell in love and kept her

She's very friendly and loving, and sucks on my mom's fingers until she falls asleep. Haha.

She is one of the sweetest, most outgoing dogs I've ever met! My sister wants to train her to be a therapy dog.

She had such a terrible start to her life, and I'm so thankful we were able to save her from the situation she was in. I wish every dog could have a happy ending.

She grew up so pretty!

This is your sister's second chi, right? She has a Tucker relative, maybe? Or am I just going crazy? LOL

Yay, you guys kept her. I can't believe that was Sept thought. It seems like it was just a few months ago.

I've actually been wondering about her! I'm glad to hear that they're keeping her and that she's doing well.
