Meet Auggie! He is an adorable 6-month-old Chihuahua mix from Colorado with a soft heart underneath his tough exterior.
He may be tiny, but his personality is mighty!
He came into his human’s life at just the right time, filling the empty hole in their hearts left by a passed loved one.
His mom, Summer, tells us all about him in the story below.
Silver and Gold
We rescued Auggie this year along with his current sister, Sophie.
Auggie truly rescued us from the pain that was felt from losing his prior sister at the beginning of the year.
He is brindle in color with short legs and currently weighs 16.6 pounds.
He has the coolest strut and though he acts tough in personality.
He is a big teddy bear on the inside.
What’s Auggie’s Personality Like?
He is such a sweet boy, smart, incredibly curious, playful and always wanting to show affection.
He is truly the sweetest blessing to our lives! We are so very lucky to have him.
Auggie loves walks and exploring, especially in the mountains.
He loves rolling in the green grass, as he always tried to bury his head.
He absolutely adores our socks, but his number one love is food.
Any type of food will bring Auggie front and center!
How Did Auggie Get His Name?
We watched the movie Wonder, and the little boy’s name in the movie was Auggie.
The little boy in this movie is very unique and special because his face looks different from other kids.
We felt Auggie was very unique because of his brindle color in nature and sweet personality.
His full name is August Kane. Kane means “little battler”.
We found the meaning out later, which is ironic considering how he’s always battling his sister for toys and treats!
One Happy Family
We love our sweet boy, August “Auggie” Kane so much!
We are so thankful he found us and we found him.
He has brought so much joy and love to our home.
We might have rescued Auggie, but he has truly has us too!
