When Pelzer signed up with a dog-friendly online dating service a few years ago, she was honest about her Chihuahua: He likes people more than other dogs, craves attention, steals food and can&rsquo;t stand to ride in the backseat of a car.

On their first date, Hubbell stole the man&rsquo;s breakfast as they drove from New York City to Long Island. They only had one more date.&nbsp;</p>Picture: <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Associated Press</span></p>
