Starlight can be a nervous Nellie so we wanted to find her a home where she could relax and not have to deal with a lot of stress. Enter Wayne. Wayne’s had several Chihuahuas and knows their “quirks”. His last one died of old age not too long ago and he was looking for a new friend.
He took Starlight home for a 14-day trial adoption. On day one at his house they watched football together in the recliner. Day two, Starlight watched deer in the backyard through the sliding glass door. Day three, Wayne called and said the trial was over that he already knew she was there to stay! We are so happy for this moody little gal and her patient new Pop! Thanks for adopting!
