My son Matthew and I were finally ready to open our hearts and home to a new pet after the passing of our beloved dog and family member Moritz. It had been 2 years since our Moritz passed away.

We searched many Humane Societies via the internet when we came upon Wilbur. Although Wilbur was on the Guelph Humane Society website, we had to apply to the Canadian Chihuahua Rescue and Transport which we did immediately. That weekend we drove to Guelph to visit Wilbur. He was such a ham. He and Matthew hit it off immediately. We left there knowing that Wilbur was the one. After a tense week of waiting I finally got the call from Wilbur’s foster mom, we had been chosen to adopt Wilbur.

Wilbur joined our family just before Christmas 2006. Although he was approximately 5 years old when we got Wilbur he melded into our family as though he was there forever. Wilbur won our hearts. Even Max, the family cat has accepted this new member of the family.
