found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
The last two pictures were taken at the vet's office the day we took this little guy in...you can see how terribly thin he is. We were at the vet's dropping off a pup to be neutered and this little guy was brought in by his owner. Owner couldn't afford to have the legs fixed and was going to have him euthanized. We were able to convince her to sign him over to us instead.
He's only 3.6 pounds and has 2 broken legs and is extremely thin. He's been horribly abused, this is not the first time this poor baby has been hurt. He had to have surgery in August as a result of being thrown against a wall. His injuries were life threatening that time but thankfully the vet was able to save him. Unfortunately, it happened again.
The vet that x-rayed and splinted his legs doesn't think the legs can be fixed without an orthopedic specialist. He wants the splints to stay on for 6 to 8 weeks before he decides. The splints are WAY too long for this tiny baby as you can see in the pics. He is also having problems with his right shoulder and we're waiting for the vet's decision on the best way to treat it. Right now the most important thing is getting Tiny Tim strong enough to withstand the surgery to repair his legs.
Tiny Tim is learning to adjust but still has trouble walking with his splints. He is gaining weight and learning what it's like to be a pampered pup! We are working on a webpage just for this special little boy and will be posting updates here as well.
