It’s interesting how we choose animals. In some ways I think it’s the same thing that causes us to be “attracted” to the one person that we want to spend our life with.  When my dad and I went to pick out his dog at the shelter, we went through a bunch of them before finding Emma.  She’s a min. pin./Chihuahua mix. She was so timid and scared and at first we weren’t sure it was the right choice. But now that he’s had her for years, he can’t imagine picking any other dog… – JCT
