PawsOfOz is a NW Arkansas rescue organization. In 2018, the owners adopted Marcelo, a young boy who was terrified of dogs. Fortunately for everyone, Mini the senior Chihuahua stepped up to welcome Marcelo to the family.

I have to laugh because the description puts "rescue adopts boy" in my brain, but this is a great little video! Very well done and nobody involved sounds like they're about to cry.

I'm curious how things go when Mini passes, hopefully they're acclimating Marcelo to other dogs, too.

Oh wow. The #MarceloandMini highlighted stories on their Instagram feed is like...the perfect antidote to everything bad that's ever happened. I love this. I love elder chihuahuas, and Mini is WONDERFUL.

One of the things that makes this great is that every other Chihuahua I've ever known was a nervous nightmare.
