He loves nothing more than being with his people and requires a minimum of grooming and exercise.
Here is a sweet story of little Chihuahua who has changed the life of a sad man. Bobby Humphreys had never even thought of adopting a tiny dog like a Chihuahua as he was the owner of three Rottweilers with his wife.
“I actually would poke fun at any of my guy friends to happened to date someone who owned a small dog. I had truly just never had given one a chance.”
But when Bobby’s life changed after his marriage of 17 years resulted in separation. He was heartbroken, fell into a deep depression and even he wanted to end his own life. At this point,his friend Connie remained on his side and helped him through this bad situation.
“My friend, Connie, had shown me what friendship really meant. No matter what I needed, she was there for me. Needless to say, I feel I owe to her quite a bit.” Bobby told I Heart Dogs.
His bestie Connie asked Bobby if he would take care of her beloved Chihuahua Lady for sometime. He was hesitant because Humphreys used to make fun of men like him who had small dogs like Lady. But Bobby decided to help his friend to return his efforts. His decision ended up saving not only his life, but the lives of 30 Chihuahuas as well. And changed his life which he never expected.
The little pup made his space in the heart of Bobby. The tiny dog acted as Bobby has never seen her before. To his surprise, the little Chihuahua crawled in his lap, spent time with him and they had quickly bonded. When Connie came to check on Bobby and Lady, she was surprised to see both of them snuggling. Bobby had a newfound love for little dogs.
After Lady went back to live with Connie, Bobby decided to adopt a Chihuahua of his own. He found Kira, a one-year-old pup, who was rescued from the miserable conditions that her previous owners kept her in. Bobby actually saved the pup and developed in her how to love and trust people again. He gave love and attention.
Bobby started taking home more and more Chihuahuas, who have had bad pasts or special needs. Eventually, he decided to start his own project – an animal rescue group: Big Guy, Little World Sanctuary.
“We rescue Chihuahuas who are living horrible lives, abused, starving, disabled, mental issues, etc. We give them either a forever home with us where they will never have to experience neglect or anything like that again, or we nurse them back to health and adopt them out! We just want to help as many babies as we can,” Bobby said.
Bobby is a kind hearted person who is responsible for saving the lives and caring for over 30 Chihuahuas. If you want to see more adorable photos of Bobby’s dogs, follow his Facebook page.
