I am so excited to have a new puppy as of two days ago. I decided to go to the SPCA shelter in the Mission with my bf and I saw the cutest little dog. Her name was Aly and she walked right up to me and rubbed up against me. I made the choice to wait a day and think about it. By nighttime, I was imagining what it would be like to have Aly in my apartment running around and knew that I couldn’t live without her. The next day, we went back to the Mission location, but a staff member said she had been transferred to the Pacific Heights place. I was relieved that she hadn’t already gotten snatched up, as many more people yesterday came into the shelter after me to look at the puppies. Aly was part of a litter. She had a sister named Kerry and a brother named Egan. They told me she was a Chihuahua mix, but I don’t believe so due to her having floppy ears, soft coat of fur, and sweet quiet temperament. I’m glad she didn’t turn out to be a yappy dog. The Maltese dog next door named Poochie has enough of a hyper attitude, barking through the night. It is nice to have a new addition to my family!
