Awwwww ... she is so precious! It's good that she's going to get a good home now!
When I found my Yorkshire Terrier, Laddie, we had almost a similar experience with him.
I tried all kinds of different names and none of them seemed to fit. So, about a day later, I was thinking of Scottish-y names and just LADDIE
came to mind. And oddly enough, he responded so well to it!
Well, since we had found him on the side of the road, we were constantly checking the newspapers for ads about a lost yorkie. There was this one add that described Laddie perfectly (same area and everything that we found him). The woman who posted the ad said her dog responded to the name "Figaro." Well, my grandmother came into my room that morning calling sweetly, "Figaro, come here Figaro!" And Laddie almost ate her alive!
He came charging out from under my covers growling and barking at her! So, she stopped and said, "Come here Laddie." And he came instantly.
She tried this again later on that day and the same thing happened. So, she called the woman back to tell her sorry, this wasn't her Figaro.
And he's been Laddie every since. He's around 16 years old this year, too. The vet estimated his age around five when we got him, and we've had him eleven years. Right now he still lives with my grandparents--he was "my" dog, but he has always believed he is my grandfather's dog. So, when I moved to Finland, I decided not to take him with me because of his age AND because it would break my grandfather's heart to lose that dog. (Not to mention Laddie HATES
It's so wonderful Mindy is coming around and growing hair! She's going to be a beautiful chi when she gets her new, full, glossy coat in!
