About Chiva
 

Chiva is a lean 50 pound, shepherd, husky, boxer, chow mix, who David met when she was just a few months old at the Delaware SPCA.  It was dog and human best friends at first sight!  Chiva was born September 3, 2005.  

The name Chiva comes from a transportation bus that is used to navigate the mountains of Colombia, South America.  David spent two summers in Medellin, Colombia, and named her in hopes that she would explore mountains with him.
