Hello from Minnesota!

Hey everyone!

My name is Samantha, and I come to the forum with two chihuahua's; Venus and Ocean. Venus is a 5 year old (possibly mixed) chihuahua, and Ocean is a 6 year old chihuahua. We purchased Venus from a backyard breeder when she was six weeks old. We knew she was too young, but the lady was adamant about selling the puppy (she was the last one) and all her dogs were being kept in a dirty hot garage, and I couldn't leave her there. I paid for her, and called the local shelter and animal control center when I got back home. We adopted Ocean this past April from a lady who bred her. She couldn't have children, so she started buying chihuahuas (she had 12) and would occasionally breed them to have babies in the house and then sold them. She sounded responsible as far as having her dogs checked by the vet and was careful with getting her puppies checked before homing them, but the whole story left a bad feeling with me. She was giving Ocean away, and after I brought her home I understood why. No matter how responsible she made herself sound, Ocean came with a mouth full of rotted teeth, luxating patellas, and recently started having seizures. She has stolen a big part of our families hearts, so it's been a struggle to get her into a healthy state where we can keep her with us for a long time.

I am engaged to a trucker who is home most weekends, and we have an almost three year old son together, who is very attached and very mindful of our dogs. I've been a member of PetGuide's chihuahua-people forum for years, but am very pleased by the homecooking section of this forum and am hoping to make a nice "home" here as well
