Sonny's New Brother!

About a month ago my brother found a Chihuahua wandering lost in front of my parents house. After trying and being unable to find the owner my brother decided he didn't have the heart to turn the little guy over to a shelter so he decided to adopt him. My brother being the big tall guy that he is never would have imagined owning a Chihuahua (the sight of them walking down the street is rather amusing :p ) but he has fallen in love with the little guy he named Julio…well to our surprise Sonny also loves Julio!!! There's nothing funnier then watching Sonny paw at him to play & every once in a while pop him on the head when he sits in Sonny's spot.

Sonny & Julio make the most unlikely brothers! 🙂

They are too cool 🆒:D!
Nice to hear Sonny gets along with him.

What cute amigos! I'm glad they are both enjoying each others' company!

Awwwwwz check out the matching ears and expressions! I know from experience that Chihuahuas and Basenjis make great brothers 😉

That's great. Is Julio staying at your house or he just visits with your brother? There's a chihuahua down the street named Nacho. He loves Buddy but any other dog or person goes by and man he's the protector barking. He whimpers in joy when we approach and let's Buddy hang over the low nylon fence to say hello. One day I tried to pull the fence up and he growled at me.

This chihuahua is a hoot…He doesn't ever bark at anything except joggers and my other brother (we say he doesn't like hippies :p). They've only been together at my parents house..but they only live a few houses down from me so Sonny's views this as home also..He acts nothing like he did with the female basenji. I was amazed at how he was totally fine with this little guy being in his territory....Guess he didn't want another basenji BFF but preferred a chihuahua! I always tell people there is nothing normal about my B..:D:D:D

Maybe Sonny was worried she was going to try to change him.;) You see this little guy excepts Sonny as he is. 😃

Julio is very cute, it's great that they get on so well.
