The decision to bring a dog into our homes shouldn’t be taken lightly. This requires even more thought when that decision involves a rescue. Rescues come with a history. It’s a history that many times we will never know. That history could shape the animal’s behavior and socialization in positive or negative ways.
Meet Max. Max is, we believe, around 2 years old. I can truly call him a “mutt” because we are not sure exactly what he is. There is surely some Chihuahua in there somewhere, but what else is in the mix is anyone’s guess. I wasn’t sure I was a small dog kind of person when I rescued Max. I have always had “medium” dogs. No one ever told me that small dogs had big dog personalities in a tiny package. Max and I hit it off from the git-go! I can be having a terrible day, and sure enough, he will do something to make me laugh.
