Animal Profile: Thimble is a sweet and adorable 5-year-old tan male teacup Chihuahua (just 6 lbs!) who was saved from a high-kill shelter that was overflowing with little chihuahuas. He was very frightened when he came to Seattle, but with a little TLC in a loving foster home, he has made great strides and now is showing his fun and quirky personality. Thimble can still be a little bit sensitive in some situations, but he takes the lead from his people and his foster sister, another little Chi! Thimble would like to go to a more 'low-key' home with another dog(s) since his loves his canine companions.
More about Thimble... he is still warming up to car rides, but he really enjoys leashed walks around the neighborhood, sunning/playing in the yard, and snuggling in laps. He can be overly submissive around other dogs, so a balanced (read: not overwhelming) friendly dog would be a well-suited match. He is now house-trained, and does okay in a crate for an afternoon or evening out, but wouldn't be a fan of being crated day in and day out. When you return home, he will great you with happy tail wags.
This little boy is full of life, and can't wait to find a loyal and loving family to call his own. He will pay back that love in spades with his beautiful personality and deserving spirit. To meet Thimble, please go to www.DogGoneSeattle.org and fill out an adoption application today!
