Meet Cha Cha: The 3 legged tripod Yorkie Dog!

Q: What do you call a dog with no legs?
A: It doesn't matter -- he's not going to come anyway.

Hey Treehutters! We're excited to introduce the newest member to the Tree Hut crew: CHA CHA! He's sassy, intelligent, affectionate, and ridiculously adorable -- all the qualities we look for in new Tree Hut recruits. Curious about his life before joining the Hut, we sat down with Cha Cha for a brief interview.

Cha Cha, the 3 legged tripod Yorkshire Terrier!

Hey Cha Cha! Thanks for taking time to interview with me.

So first, can you tell us a little about yourself?
I'm a 3-year-old, 4 pound, 3 legged Yorkie. I lived in a dog shelter for a couple of those years. My name used to be Tripod before my human adopted me. A lot of people mistake me for a girl, but I'm a boy. Is that enough?

What would you say your hobbies are?
That's a tough question. I like to do a lot of things, like sniff everything in sight, run in circles, eat treats, pee on the floor, bark...

Why do you like barking?
As you know, I just got hired to be on the Tree Hut crew as their watch dog (haha, get it?). It's my job to defend the office from potential threats like the Postman and other men in uniform. Even though the humans say it's OK when strangers come into the office, they're wrong. They don't understand I've gotta do my job!

Tell me more about your job as a watch dog.
I've got that Yorkie "spunk." You know how they say "dogs are man's best friend?" Well, Yorkies are man's greatest protector. I run after anything that crosses my path and I investigate any dog that comes into my territory. I never back down from a challenge, no matter how big the other dog is (pit bulls may be an exception).

So is that why you like to chase every. single. thing. around?
Yes, that's correct. It's in my DNA, baby.

Do you consider yourself a hard worker?
Absolutely! I come to work every Monday through Friday from 1pm to 5pm. I haven't missed a day yet! Of course, I do take my well-deserved breaks, when my human walks me around the block in Glen Park, San Francisco. There's so many good smells, like from the cheese shop next door or the bakery up up the block.

Do you think you have the personality traits of a typical Yorkshire Terrier?
I'd say so. All of us Yorkies come from a working class background -- we were bred to catch vermin in the house and farm -- so we've got some solid middle class values. We like our days to be simple and planned, with no surprises. We don't like being pampered either.

What do you think of people?
I LOVE people. I've gotta be one of the most affectionate pups around. I thrive on love! At work, I jump around from employee to employee, trying to jump into their lap (they actually pick me up because I can't jump that high) so I can be pet and snuggled.
