How many dogs do you have, and what breed are they?

Currently, my pack consists of three dogs. CHITA is a Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound Mix. Her role is therapist & best-friend to my teenaged daughter. SENORITA is a full blooded Chihuahua with chronic bad breath, no matter how many dentals we get her. And finally, we have NiNi, who came to us as an Ay Chihuahua Rescue foster dog, but will never leave our home now. She found her niche, claimed a dog bed, and our home is now her home too.

Are any of your dogs rescues? If so, from where? Care to share their brief story?

All three of my dogs are rescues! One SPCA rescue, one private rescue & one ACR rescue!

What do you hope to gain by joining The Chi Amigos?

I hope to meet and mingle with other Chihuahua lovers as well as give my dogs and foster dogs, the opportunity to mingle as well. They are social creatures too.

What is the most important reason you are joining The Chi Amigos?

The most important reason I am joining the Chi Amigos is the need for socialization of my current & future fostered Ay Chihuahua Rescue dogs.


It all began in 1997 when my (then) husband came home from work one day with a Chihuahua puppy in the palm of his hand. Tiki was with us for 15 and went to the Rainbow Bridge on February 4, 2012.
