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

My husband and I have two dogs. Our older dog is a 20 pound terrier mix. Our second dog is a tiny 5 pound Chihuahua.

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

Our first dog, Sergio, is a rescue who came from a hoarding situation. Animal Control seized about 75 dogs from a property and brought them to the local shelter in Maryland. I was a volunteer involved with socializing the dogs and adopted her in 2006. We found our second dog running loose in an intersection in East Austin. We filed a report with the shelter, but no owners came forward. She is now spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. She is a joyful dog who loves everybody.

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

I would like to give our tiny dog an opportunity to socialize and play with other dogs.. Our first dog is older and not very playful with other dogs. I would also like to learn more about how to house train my little chihuahua.

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

To meet people and to give my chihuahua a chance to play with other little dogs.

Introduction

Hello, I am new to the Austin area. I am looking for a group for my tiny dog to socialize. We found her running loose on the street when we first came to Austin to look for a house.
