Presley, the chihuahua mix, was only three months old when she arrived at a local shelter in Florida after being abandoned. The moment the shelter staff saw her, they immediately realized how badly her previous situation was. Not only was she severely malnourished, but she also suffered from developmental delay.
Little by little, the shelter staff nursed the chihuahua mix back to health and eventually listed her up for adoption. That was when Presley met her fur mom, Rebecca Shelton. The real estate worker wasn’t looking for a dog initially, but after her mom passed away, she requested that her daughter find herself a companion.
Wanting to fulfill her mom’s last wish, she decided to visit the local shelters to find the perfect companion. It didn’t take long for Rebecca to meet Presley from there. She knew that chihuahuas were one of the least adopted breeds in shelters, so when she met Presley, she realized she wanted to help the pup.
That same day, the chihuahua mix came home with a new home and life ahead of her. Rebecca immediately showered her with tons of luxurious food and stuff. And this eventually led to spoiling her with fancy restaurant lunches, collars with rhinestones and glitters, and even a personal designer for her custom clothes!
To date, Rebecca shares that Presley owns at least 150 dresses, t-shirts, and tutus, all custom made just for her. She also never lets the pooch wear the same outfit twice, and any of her castoffs are donated to less fortunate dogs.
Over the years, Presley’s fancy dress-up has earned her quite the following, both online and in real life. Thankfully, the four-year-old pup never minds the frequent outfit changes. In fact, she loves it whenever Rebecca dresses her up, especially if it includes wearing glasses, which is her favorite thing to do.
Her adorable clothes have eventually become a part of her identity, and she has also started joining dog competitions across the country because of it. Rebecca hopes that through Presley’s popularity, many people will be encouraged to adopt a rescue chihuahua like her. Watch Presley and her now luxurious life here.
