Tessa
We have had Tessa since she was about 10 weeks old. My husband and I rescued her off the street in Turkey when we were stationed there with the military. She was raised around 2 cats and our chihuahua. We made sure to socialize with other dogs. We moved to Texas in 2012, we didn't have any issues with Tessa around family, she was great with children of all ages and also dogs. In 2013 we had Tessa spayed and a few months later we had a baby. It was around that time we noticed a change in her. She started showing dominate behavior toward our cat, and even toward our chihuahua around food. She was fine with the baby until our daughter started getting older, she is stressed/anxious around our daughter. She is very different outside, doesn't seem to have any issues at all with our daughter or other animals. She is very playful and happy. With our family soon to be growing we don't feel like it's fair to Tessa to add another small infant to the household.

She is an amazing dog, she would be better in a home with no children or older children and an alpha leader but one who is caring, patient and loving! We live in San Antonio so if you would like to email to talk about your situation and family and whether she is right for you please email me and let me know. There will be checks to make sure you are a safe and loving home. Thank you.
