Our happy client Lisa C, admits why her pet chihuahua Mikey makes her happy:
Summer of 2011 was a very tough one. I had just graduated high school and would soon be leaving my family and friends in Miami to start college in Boston and my mother was just recovering from a very serious surgery. Because my mom and I lived alone, I was very worried about leaving for college in such a short amount of time. One afternoon, a friend made a post on Facebook about a small dog that needed a home. I was never allowed a pet but always wanted one, so I went ahead and claimed I wanted one of the dogs. Without telling my mom, I went out and bought everything I needed to welcome this little one home, and by the time she got back from work, my mom now had a new family member living at our house. She was not happy at first but she warmed up to the idea in a few hours once she spent more time with him. Mikey, a 2 year old Chihuahua, changed mine and my family’s lives. Once I left for college, my mom became even more infatuated with this guy. Our phone calls would turn into recaps of Mikey’s day and with every day that passed, I felt much better about leaving for college because I knew my mom was no longer alone. Mikey is now the baby of the entire family. My aunts, uncles, and cousins are as in love with him as I am. He is energetic, loving, and having him around makes every day a happier day! This small Chihuahua who once needed a home rescued me and my family.
