An Addition to the Family

Meet Chrissy. Noey and I adopted her today!

She's about 2 years old and we think she is a daschund/chihuahua mix. She was rescued from a County Animal Shelter, where she was going to be put to death!!

Noey has been wanting a dog, so we've been looking into "rescue" or "shelter" dogs. This morning we drove to Long Beach to meet Chrissy and a couple of other dogs. Noey fell in love with her the moment she saw her, and I think Chrissy felt the same way!

Now we just have to get used to having a dog in the house. The rescue lady told me it's just like having a 2 year old.....

She seems to have some of the same traits in her face as my mom's jack russle also... I wonder if she's got any of that in her?
At any rate, congratulations and how awesome that you rescued her! When/if we decide to get another dog, that's what my plan is as well. There are so many out there who need loving homes!
Happy Holidays to you and your family :)

Oh isnt she a sweetheart, and Noey looks so happy with her. Great Christmas present too for Noey. I am sure it will be just like having another child in the house. I hope she is easy to train for you too. By the way she does look as though she has Jack Russell in her, obviously a short haired one.
