Default Hello all.

My name is Brian and I'm a 21 year old student at Rutgers University in New Jersey. At this exact moment I'm living at home with my parents but this tuesday, I'll be moving into my house in New Brunswick.

I adopted a 1.5 year old chihuahua (that doesn't look too much like a chihuahua) named Cotto from my good friend. He's named Cotto after Miguel Cotto, the professional boxer.

I've always wanted a dog but could never have one because I lived with my parents in suburban NJ and my mom isn't too fond of dogs and my father believes there's too much work involved and that there aren't enough hours in a day as it is. But since I'll be living in my own place with some of my old friends, I can have one now =D. I've jumped from hamsters to gerbils to freshwater fish to saltwater fish (currently have a pair of clownfish and a 46Gallon bowfront aquarium---was gonna spend money stocking this tank up...but that money will probably end up going to Cotto now).

At long last, I can walk into pet stores with a little friend by my side, stroll down the street with a leash in my hand, run around the park with a companion keeping up. I'm so happy to have a dog finally. and an relatively obedient and behaving one at that.

Hi and Welcome. I am mommy to a 3 and 2.5 year old Belgian Malinois and a 10 year old Poodle/Shih tzu mix. Oh and two cats I have to share that very first dog experience. All the dogs we had growing up were outside dogs until my mother got Ruby since shes small, dont shed etc. After my mother died I got my first own dog Gunner was a Christmas/Birthday gift from my Father. I still remember the day I got him, I was so happy I couldnt beleive I had my very own dog. He went everywhere with me partially because he was my service dog but my best friend also and the first inside dog other than Ruby. When my father left the picture I inherited Ruby but by that time Gunner died young from an accident. Thats how I got my next two to fill that loss and void for a large slobbery dog. So yes I can see why your so excited...been there done it.

Hope you enjoy the forum and I wanna see pics of Cotto recently Small dogs can have such a personality lol. Oh and I have a 35 gallon Hex tank..I only have patience for freshwater tho....I would lose my mind with saltwater.

Default Cotta

Cotta is adorable. You will have a great companion with him. I had a chihuahua but she pasted away a yr ago. She was a little princess. I started out fostering her (due to the abuse of her other owners) when she was well enough for adoption I just couldn't let her go. I had 5 wonderful yrs with her. She was handicapped never made a sound and never snipped at anyone. (her abuser's other dog broke her jaw) Her name was Mia. She went everywhere with me. Mia was always by my side. I wish you and Cotta many many happy yrs together.
