Take a look at Cesar (Jack Russell Mix) and Princess (Boston Terror). Lori Miller tells their story I was working a trade show in San Francisco last March and I should never have gone down to the trade floor. One of the Exhibitors showcased a local animal adoption group and they brought in five puppies. I just wanted to look that was all but when I held him in my arms and he licked me and fell asleep...I knew he was the one. I adopted Cesar and flew him home with me to Virginia. I know I was crazy to do this but I just held him and I knew he would be a perfect pet for my boys and his personality told me that if any other dog could get along with my Boston Terrors it would be him (Courtesy Lori Miller, WTOP secretary, engineering department)
