Giselmarie Sánchez and her nine doggies playing in the garden during a sunny Sunday, as she is used to do. This young girl of Aguada, has the privilege of having eight cute Chihuahuas and one that is not a purebred dog. “My first Chihuahua, Loli, was found by my cousin. She was helpless walking down the streets. Loli is the mother and grandmother of all the others. Perla, which is not a purebred dog was given to us because her previous owners didn’t wanted her. Without hesitating, I accepted!”

Meet Canela

Canela’s mother was a mix of a Chihuahua and a Poodle. “I think that dogs that aren’t purebred are better because they get the best features of their precedents. I also read that they get less sick than purebred dogs”

Lucky and Natalie for Ever

Lucky accompanying his owner Natalie Amadeo on a busy day in the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez. Lucky, a Dachshund dog, was a gift from Natalie’s father before she came to the University. Since then, both of them have been inseparable. “I think Universities should be more  animal friendly. When I went to Colorado everything was like that, but here pets don’t have the same privilege. There is many people like me, who feel protected when they have their dogs near them.”
