A volunteer wrote: Oh my word, I had the best Valentine this year, and his name was Pistachio. Pistachio is a 9 year old, 3lb Chihuahua, and quite simply, he is wonderful. This little guy may be small in height (and weight!), but he has a huge heart and a huge amount of bravery and spunk. Pistachio walks wonderfully on a leash, and for a guy who is three times smaller than most cats, he took to the streets like it was no big deal. Dogs, cars, people—nothing bothered him. He just wanted to walk and explore as much as he could. After we were done with our walk, I brought him back into the shelter, and Pistachio relaxed in my arms so I could love on him. I put him back in his cage to tend to other pups, and every time I walked past his cage after that, he would run to the front, stand on his hind legs, and cry for me to spend time with him. So, of course, we had some more cuddle time before I left for the night! They always say that good things come in small packages, and Pistachio is living, furry proof of that! Come on down and meet him for yourself!
