from MN. and a lover of Chi's! I have had 5 previous chi's and we currently have 2 very different ones!! I have never had one spot of trouble with any of them. Daisy, one of our current rescues, was so frightened of anyone when we decided to take her, that the family had to send her kennel with her as we couldn't touch her. We brought the kennel in the house and opened the door, she took off. Be night's end and a visit from our son with his chi, Daisy was in the safety of our arms. It took her 5-6 weeks before she began to warm to others. We have had her a little over a yr. and she is totally socialized, loving everyone once she greets them in her deep voice. Our other is a puppy mill rescue that came into our live just 4 days after Daisy and they are the best of pals, taking good care of each other!! That makes 7 for 7 good little dogs. I really think love and kindness is all they need to behave well (as well as good training!!)
Glad you joined us and wishing you the best on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.
