Arrival Story:
Tessa was picked up as a stray somewhere in Indiana by a rescue organization that works with Another Chance Pet Rescue, in New York. When she came to us, she was literally skin and bone. It was apparent that she'd had at least one litter of pups; she's about 2 years old, has issues with men, but we're working on that.

She was first described as a Min-Pin mix. Someone changed it to an IG-mix. We're not sure, but, it's clear that she's got a very feisty, terrier temperament. Three month up-date: two of my more experienced dog friends think that Tessa is Pharaoh Hound/IG mix. The "boing - ing" she does is typical of what PH do combined with the fact that Tessa uses her nose first and then her sight. She was a bit overwhelmed in Level One Obedience, so we might go back and take that class a second time. She's playful, loves grapes and the boarding kennel staff where she stayed for a week (with Jasper) while her humans went on vacation, all fell in love with her. She's the star attraction on my blog, which you can check out here: http://www.MrsBizWhizConnects.com . In addition to Jasper, 3 cats and her humans, Tessa lives with Josephine, our 11 year old whippet.
