Tiny Tim's Story...

Adopted! 

Thanks so much Ester for making this special boy part of your family!  We'll miss you Timmy!



UPDATE! We are now accepting applications for adoption on Tiny Tim. Email us for updated pictures if you're interested.

Please note: Tiny Tim is NOT available for adoption at this time. He has a long road to recovery ahead of him. We are in desperate need of donations to help pay for his vet care.

If you would like more information on Tiny Tim, please email us. Please do not call the vet asking for more information as they will not release any information without specific permission to do so. Thank you.

UPDATE: We do not know at this time if Tim will be placed up for adoption. He has been through quite a lot in his short life and does not trust many people which is completely understandable. He has become extremely attached to his foster family and they are very attached to him as well. His foster family will be given the option of adopting him before we review any applications on him. We have already had quite a few applications on this little boy but want to do what is best for him.

 

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tiny Tim, a Mountain Home Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Mountain Home, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Mountain Home.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mountain Home already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mountain Home breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mountain Home paves the way for another one to be saved.
