In 2004, while I was boarding my horse at a stables, I met a little JRT mix who lived at the property. We became fast friends, but I could tell she was starved for attention. I asked her owners about "Sydney" & they told me that she was too active & she urinated in their house, so they just isolated her in the garage by herself. I was very saddened...what did they expect from a 3 month old puppy? I immediately told them that if they ever did not want her that I would take her. About a month later, happily they offered her to me & I jumped on it.

It's been 9 years now, and sweet little Sydney sleeps by my side as I write this. She has been my constant companion wherever and whenever I can take her. She loves people, horses, cats and of course, other dogs. She loves road trips and has a big dog attitude in a small dog's body. Their loss was definitely my gain!

Sydney's hidden talent is rescuing me from snakes. I have a major phobia about the slithery things and small ones are all around where I live. She seeks them out when we go outside and she spirits them away from me. Thank you Sydney for all of your love and companionship.
