The image on the animal rescue’s site showed a little brown and tan puppy with amber eyes and floppy ears. “Sugar Plum,” as they named her, had a fuzzy backstory. She was taken from her mom when she was just five weeks previous and dumped at a shelter. The rescue wasn’t sure of her breed, and their most effective guess was dachshund, perhaps with some chihuahua mixed in.

We renamed our very little puppy dog Sofia and marveled at her self confidence and sass. She pranced from one particular area to the subsequent like she experienced somewhere to be, and she authoritatively took all the toys from the bin and claimed them as her possess. She struck us as a chihuahua, and we made a decision to do a doggie DNA test to find out her precise breed background.
