Meet Bitty!  

This adorable 3.5 lb puppy is appropriately named for her tiny size that she is and always will be! Bitty is one of our three puppies who came into rescue with "Mama Tink".  Their Mama has gone on to find her Forever Home and now it is time for these babies to do the same.

Bitty was an owner surrender as a very young puppy.  (We believe about 2 weeks old.)  The entire family was living outside, infested with fleas and severely malnourished.  One puppy had already passed away and the owner knew they could no longer care for Mama Tink and her three remaining puppies.

Mama Tink and her babies improved steadily with a great diet and lots of tender care from volunteers.  Bitty was the smallest of the babies, upon intake and we believe would not have made it through the first night in rescue, if the volunteers had not been there to keep her warm.  She now weighs  at about 3.5 lbs at 3 months old. Mama was a total of 7 lbs when she was healthy & adopted, so these puppies will remain very small.

Bitty loves to run & hop like a bunny through the yard with her siblings.  She is an active girl who also loves to snuggle.  She has been in a wonderful foster home, around other small dogs and teenage children who understand that being gentle and careful with such small pups is a necessity.

We are looking for families who understand the needs of small dogs.  It takes special considerations to keep a small dog from being stepped on, lost out a gap in the fence or hurt from jumping off of furniture.  We need a home with older children who are accustomed to looking before they step.  :)

About Take Me Home Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Take Me Home Pet Rescue is a 100% nonprofit organization committed to reducing the homeless pet population by removing dogs and cats from shelters and other unfortunate situations and having them spayed, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being adopted to their forever families.

We consists of a small core group of volunteers who care about the welfare of our homeless pets. We are located in Richardson, Texas and survive solely from your generous donations and fundraiser's (after fundraiser...after fundraiser!). All of our pets live in our homes as we do not have an actual facility. Because they live within the dynamics of the foster families and are exposed to children of all ages and other pets, we find that that our foster cats and dogs are more adoptable as they have already been socialized to live in a family environment.

We have been in existence since April 2008 and have already rescued over 600 dogs and cats from local kill shelters and other unfortunate situations.

All dogs and cats are spayed and neutered before being adopted. These pets also receive all appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped. In effort to reduce the possibility of the pet being returned, adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality of both the pet and adopter are a good match.

Our Adoption Process...

All applications are submitted to an adoption board for approval to ensure a happy forever home for both owner and pet. In effort to reduce the possibility of the pet being returned, adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality of both the pet and adopter are a good match. We will be in contact with you during this process.

Puppies are ready to go home after their 2nd of 3 shots and spay/neuter are complete. A $50 deposit will hold the puppy of your choice. The 3rd. shot is included in the adoption fee.

All pets are to be kept as indoor, non-working, members of your family and are spayed and neutered before being adopted. These pets also receive all appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped.

A safe pet home visit is included in the adoption fee.
