The Perfect Gift


Four years ago we looked for a pet for the family. We wanted a small dog because we lived in an apartment and we didn't have space for a big pet. My sister's neighbour was selling little Chihuahuas. We went to her house, but we couldn't find anything and we kept looking.

Finally one day after my daughter's birthday my husband came back home after his work with a small dog in his arms. My husband found it in a construction site and she was very scared and hungry.

It was dog abuse. She was skinny and she hid under the bed all the time. She had a lot of scratches on her head and she had no whiskers and she didn't like to eat dog food just chips and some things like that.

We went to the vet for a check if she had a microchip, but she didn't have anything and they gave her a shot for the rabies and her weight it was just 3 pounds. We were thinking about a small beautiful name like her and we chose the name of Susi. She took 3 weeks to understand us in Spanish and her name.

Now Susi is the most spoiled dog of the world. She's a little ugly, but very sweet and she loves her new family. The animals have feelings like us just they need talk.

Take care of them with love.

Martita, as you know animals have feelings too, and I really don't understand why? people have pets if they are not going to take care of them, good for you and your family, and I am glad Susi is happy with her new family.

AWW this a very sweet! A lot of people dont understand that animals have feelings, very unfortunate for the animals, I think that if people can take care of their pets they should get them in the beginning.
