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. :)
