“She had an injury to her eye, which would have been cured with medication but her breeder didn’t take her to a vets,” explains Phoebe. “When it got worse, the breeder gave her up and the vet took her in and did the surgery to remove the eye as it was too late to be saved.”

It was love at first sight for Phoebe, to her, Stitch was beautiful. There was only one thing that she was concerned about and that was whether she would get along with Phoebe’s best friend, Alaska the Bull Terrier.

As it turns out she had nothing to worry about. When they arrived at the house Stitch immediately made herself at home and as soon as she introduced her to Alaska, they instantly hit it off.

Now the two are inseparable, Phoebe says: “It used to be that Alaska (my dog) would follow me everywhere, toilet and shower included. Now, there are two.” She added, “They eat together, sleep together, play together and I’m pretty sure if Stitch was allowed outside they would also poop together.”
