SAY HELLO TO
Hello there. My name is Cecy and this is my story.
Most stories start from the beginning. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about my life before 2014. You see, that's when I was found as a stray and taken to a local holding facility in a northwest Chicago suburb. I don't know where I came from, who I lived with, or what my life was like. All I know is I was homeless, alone, and absolutely terrified. Luckily Almost Home Foundation saved me from being put to sleep and gave me a fresh start.
I was in a foster home for just over a week when I was adopted. I was a one-show dog, which is unusual for a Chihuahua. And so I thought I was set for life in my new forever home. Well, forever turned out to be not-so-forever and I was returned to Almost Home after two years. It wasn't my fault though. My adopter got a new job that was mostly travel and he could no longer care for me. I came back to AHF and was placed in a different foster home since my original foster couldn't take me back. So here I am again looking for a home to call my own.
Now that you know my background, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a Chihuahua mix and weigh under 10 pounds. I have lived with other dogs and do fine with them. I do like to hog my foster mom's attention though (I am definitely a lap-dog!). I also enjoy going for walks and don't pull on my leash. Toys are also fun (I especially like the soft, squeaky ones). I don't chew furniture or other things so your belongings are safe. Some of my favorite foods include carrots, peanut butter, and raw hide chews. I am also crate-trained and housebroken, though sometimes I wander off and have a poop accident (but my foster mom thinks I do that only when I'm upset with her). I do like to follow my family around the house and don't like to be left alone. I do okay when you're gone but I think I prefer to have someone home most of the time. Its best if I'm crated when you're not home because I feel safer there. I need a home that doesn't have cats or young children since I don't do well around them.
CHAPTER 4 AND BEYOND
This chapter is not yet written since I do not have a forever home. Do you want to help me finish my story? Are you the family who will help me live happily ever after? If so, please email email@example.com or come meet me at an adoption show. Paws crossed I will find my family soon!
