In the city, space is a premium but these pampered pooches are given more square footage than most New Yorkers!
Two of New Yorks biggest (and smallest) celebrities are Yum Yum and Lollipop, (owned by Teresa Costanzo) and they are taking the USA by storm!!!
Firstly, can you adopt me? Your house looks lovely
awwww, thanks so much
What fur babies share your space?
YumYum is my 3 year old, 2.7lb, applehead, cream, short haired chihuahua. She is extremely shy and a total scardy cat. She is very loving, happy , healthy little girl. She loves to sun bathe on a sunny day or under the covers on a cold day. She loves to dress up and she will jump in my lap when she sees me bring out a dress. She will jump right in her carry bag as soon as she sees it as she knows she’s coming with mama.
Lollipop is my 6 yr old, 3lb, tan, short haired chihuahua. We rescued her this past July. She was found on a construction site in Texas. When the owners were located, they told them to “put her down” because they didn’t want to pay for the double hernia surgery she needed. A fellow FB’er who does a little rescue held a fundraiser to raise the funds. She has her surgery and her photo was posted on FB. That is when I first saw her and immediately fell in love with her. The rest is history. She is outgoing, and fun loving. Loves to take walks and must go up and say hello to everyone.
Chihuahua are a very misunderstood breed as many claim they are “nasty & Mean”. Soooo NOT true. They are very loyal, and OVERprotective of their owners. YumYum and Lollipop do not have a mean bone in their body. They are cold by nature so it is usually always necessary to have at least a little shirt or sweater on them.
