Meet Pinto!
Pinto is the smallest of the litter, and weighs only 2lbs (10/5/16). Due to his tiny size, he is not suitable for families with very young children, or dogs over 15lbs.
This puppy is one of a litter of 4 Toy Fox Terrier mix puppies that are in need of loving homes. Their mother, Bindi, a purebred Toy Fox Terrier, was found wandering the neighborhood where her owner lived, and was covered in fleas, scared to death, had callouses on her knees and heels, the hair was completely rubbed off of her back AND she was very pregnant. A good Samaritan was able to coax Bindi to come to her, realized the condition she was in, and turned her in to the shelter, knowing that she could not go back to the people that were doing this to her. We see this type of condition mainly in dogs that are kept for breeding purposes only, and kept in small, unsanitary cages, and this causes the hair to rub off on their backs, where the small cage constantly rubs their hair off. Luckily, Bindi found herself a safe place to land, and gave birth to a litter of 4 healthy babies the very next day! Bindi weighs around 12lbs, and we believe her babies will also weigh around that size. We do not know what the father of the litter was, but they could have some Chihuahua in the mix. They are very sweet and curious, not to mention teeny tiny! Due to their itty bitty size, they would not be suitable for families with very young children, due to the severe injury that would result from them being dropped or stepped on accidentally.

About Midwest Animal Rescue Service

About Our Shelter...

Midwest Animal Rescue Service (MARS) is a NO-KILL, state-licensed organization (IL Dept. of Agriculture #13839) that finds loving homes for as many animals in need as possible. The animals in our program were rescued from either high-kill facilities (where animals are in danger of being put to sleep), or neglectful owners that are not providing proper care to their pets.

WHEN CONSIDERING ADOPTION, please check into what is included in the adoption fees. We hold all animals in our care for a minimum of 21 days to properly screen for health conditions, and to provide as much pre-adoption care as possible.
