Hello everyone! My name is Chi Chi. I’m so blessed today to be living in a beautiful home filled with endless love, but I need to share my story because life didn’t start out so sunny.
It was March 11, 2011. I woke up at a shelter on the west side of Phoenix and just had a sense that this was going to be an important day. Little did I know, I was scheduled to be euthanized in just 24 hours.
The clock kept ticking down. I watched as other dogs were adopted, none of whom had all my baggage. You see, my back leg was severely injured in an accident, turning me into the photogenic, three-legged love muffin that I am today. But none of those other dogs had my spunk and personality!
Time was slipping away and then someone finally came to my rescue! Ann Siner, the co-founder of My Sister’s Closet, had received an email about me and was so moved she welcomed me into her extended family of furry friends, all of which were adopted from similar shelters. Without Ann's generosity and compassion I would be writing to you from doggy heaven (I know, that's an assumption).
Needless to say, it was puppy love from the start. Now I get to bask in the desert sun, take long walks (or in my case, hops) and enjoy a life that I never could have imagined.
I hope that you feel compelled to adopt a pet like me. After all, there is nothing more fashionable than saving the life of an animal.
I look forward to sniffing you soon,
- Chi Chi
