When topics about Chihuahuas enter the conversation, we imagine teeny tiny dogs who can fit inside drinking glasses. This breed’s name came from Chihuaha, which is one of Mexico’s richest states. It is situated near the US border.
Merchants from Chihuahua sold these small pooches to tourists before crossing the border. The intention behind it being, so that those who came from their state could bring home the pups and take care of them as pets. Since Chihuahua’s are difficult to resist, what with those beautiful eyes of theirs, merchants never ran out of buyers.
While a lot of people are fond of Chihuahuas, there’s one man who’s been vocal about his dislike towards it and other small breeds. His name is Sinclair Martin.
No to small dogs
Unlike Sinclair, his wife Sheridan is a huge fan of the breed. She’s been trying to get him to agree to own a Chihuahua, but he would always decline. He would insist on getting a dog as big as Merlin, their German Shepherd – Pit Bull mix. He wanted a dog he and Merlin could play with, not a teeny tiny pup who’s “mean and yappy.”
Despite Sinclair’s apprehensions, Sheridan still insisted on getting a Chihuahua. The man caved at some point, but he made sure to give his wife an earful before buying one. Sheridan didn’t pay attention to his rants. She was too excited to finally get the Chihuahua to even listen to her husband complain.
A change of heart
When she finally found a Chihuahua that she wanted to adopt, she asked Sinclair to come with her to pick it up. When they finally saw the puppy, she was surprised to hear her husband say that it belongs to them both. For some reason, he began carrying it around like it was his baby. Sheridan couldn’t help but laugh at how head-over-heels her husband was for the teeny tiny furball.
