Sammi & JoJo make a family complete
"When our German Shepherd x passed away in 2007, it broke our hearts and we had real trouble deciding whether we should get another dog. We had three cats at the time and they were keeping us busy, but we finally gave in to temptation in 2011 and jumped onto the PetRescue website hoping to find a puppy that was good with cats.
There we met and fell head-over-heels in love with Sammi, a gorgeous nine-week-old Chihuahua x Jack Russell listed with SAFE in Broome. We had her flown to our hometown and the fun began. She could fit into the palm of my hand, but every ounce of her was full of energy. By day, she was lots of fun and at night she’d settle down for cuddles in bed.
When we decided to move from our Perth CBD pad to a five-acre property in Bridgetown, we thought Sammi could do with a partner in crime to run around with. PetRescue was again our first port of call, where we found JoJo, a black and tan Kelpie x. She was so cute, her over-sized head made her look like a dwarf Doberman.
From the first moment they met, Sammi and JoJo became best of friends, and despite JoJo being a lot bigger, Sammi was more than happy to run, tumble and wrestle with her. They also share a love of long walks on the lead, chasing the ducks on our property, summer swims in the lake and riding on our kayaks.
It’s always lovely to have them greet us with wagging tails when we arrive home from a shopping trip. They have filled our home with so much joy. We couldn’t do without them.
Thanks, Alli and Arthur (& JoJo & Sammi)
