Introducing Sadie, Alexa's new Bichon Poo.
Alexa has been wanting a small, indoor dog for a long time now. Tony was not sure about another pet, so he has been resisting the idea. He finally gave in since that was all she wanted for her birthday. There were some problems, however. Alexa likes small toy breeds like Yorkies, but has a mom who's morals/ethics will not allow purchasing an animal from a breeder or pet store. There are just too many animals that need homes, I refuse to support an industry that creates more pets. Tony and I visited the local shelter. There were quite a few dogs there, the only small ones being chihuahuas(SP?) which Tony can't stand! Alexa was given the job of searching Craig's list, Humane Society, PetCo adoptions, etc online. She spent hours searching the net for the perfect pet. We found her on Craig's list, needing to be adopted from a family that worked full time and did not have the time to supervise her properly. They also had a larger dog that did not take too well to the new pup. I still feel a little torn since she did originally come from a breeder, and feeling a little hypocritical, but she did need a good loving home. And look how happy she has made my girl:
