Arrival Story:
I've been wanting a dog since I was 7 years old. My parents always said no. Being Asian, my mother always looked down upon pets because they 'would ruin and dirty the house'. Once I graduated high school, my mom finally let me get a puppy that summer. She was still reluctant and gave me only a few days to find a dog. If I didn't find a puppy by her deadline, I wouldn't be able to have one at all. Of course my search wasn't out of desperation. You know, first dog found, first dog picked....No, No. It wasn't like that. I've always looked in the newspapers and online for potential dogs in hope I would one day own one of them. So being prepared, I found a puppy that fit my parents' criteria. They didn't care what breed I picked out, as long as it was female, short-haired, and small in size. So this is how I got Tessa.

Some people say I can't be a Min Pin

Tessa is quite large for the average minpin. She is 18-19 inches tall and weighs 18.5 pounds. She is a purebreed and both of her parents are about average size (father,10 lbs. mother,12 lbs), but somehow she just became some super huge pin. We like to call Tessa, "Big Pin" With her height, came long legs. She is by far the fastest dog at our local dog park, which homes both large and small breeds.
