Timmy's Info...

Timmy's Story...
This is little Timmy...a survivor and a dollbaby. Timmy was thrown from a moving truck in front of a high-kill shelter. The shelter workers saw this happen and risked life and limb to save him from being hit by another car. Upon evaluation, it was discovered that Timmy's right leg (femur) had been broken and surgery was required, so the shelter called us to see if we could take him as they had no way of giving him the medical care he needed. That has now been taken care of and Timmy is well on his way to recovery.

What is most surprising is that Timmy holds no grudges against humans from his experience. He's a happy, kissy little boy who just wants to be loved. He does well with other dogs and children and we will happily test him with cats if you'd like.

He's approximately 15 lbs at about 6 months old, so we are guessing that he won't get past 25 lbs. fullgrown.

Timmy is currently boarding at our partner vet clinic in Memphis, TN. We are comprised of a small group of volunteers from Delaware, New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

For our dogs that are out of state, we try to promote adoptions based on trust that we will send you the most wonderful dog for you home; our foster situation is quite limited and thus it’s difficult for us to bring dogs here prior to finding a committed, forever home. We realize that adopting a dog sight unseen may seem like a stressful situation, but we truly do our very best to make sure that we make a great match for every dog and every family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Timmy, a Claymont Papillon/Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon/Collie for sale in Claymont, or seeking a Papillon/Collie puppy from a breeder in Claymont.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Claymont 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 Claymont 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 Papillon/Collie breeders who help with Papillon/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Claymont paves the way for another one to be saved.
