Talking Ankle High Santa Fe

Greetings from Santa Fe, NM! I'm Lauren and I live with my husband, JR, and our five year old chihuahua, Vigo. We love to take Vigo hiking in the mountains! Vigo was adopted by us in July of 2010 after living at two different shelters (and at least three homes). He earned the label of "not good with other dogs" because an previous adopter's existing dog didn't like him. He is WONDERFUL with other dogs and with children as well! We really lucked out :-)

If you want to see Vigo in action, he has his own Youtube channel at: http://www.youtube.com/santafevigo

The first video on there of him trying on his boots for the first time is quite amusing. Needless to say, we got rid of the boots.

Have a great day and come "meet" us online!

Welcome to df! I take it Vigo didn't like the boots too well ! Wait until there is a snow and carry them along. Maybe he will like them better then!

We might just try that! Although, the guy at Pet Smart said that with most types of boots, unless we cut off his circulation, they probably won'ot stay on very long LOL! He said it's because chihuahuas are really smart and instead of tugging at the actual boot, they'll actually unhook the velcro and then pull it off. Yeah, Vigo proved that to be correct HAHA!

Hello & welcome to df. When I was a child we had a small mixed breed dog. Mum bought him little boots to wear in the car so he wouldn''t scratch the car. He used to look so cute. Mum found the boots some 50 yrs later.

Vigo is very cute.
