Wendell is my 5 year-old Chihuahua (mix). I got him four years ago from a dog rescue group. His background is a bit of a mystery – but it’s pretty clear that he had a rough first year of life. When I first got him he was severely under weight and had major social issues. It has taken a long time but he is so much better. While he is still nervous around new people – he has grown his circle of trust to include some people other than me. He has an incredible appetite for a little dog – there is only one known instance of him turning down food.
Wendell is not a big fan of winter. Most days he spends snoozing on a pillow while I work in my office. In the spring and summer – he loves being outside. He may be small but he is always up for an adventure – hiking a mountain or just laying in the warm sun.
Wendell is quite the dog. I couldn’t imagine my life without him.
