My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Tiny Boy (approx 12 pounds) came to CPR due to unforeseen circumstances of his owner. That's what rescue is all about and now he is looking for his forever home. Tiny Boy has a lot of spunk and loves to run and play outside.
He is crate-trained and housetrained when taken out on a regular schedule. Tiny Boy was around other small dogs and cats and did well with them. At his foster mom's house, he tolerates the bigger fosters but prefers to be the only lap dog so he can get all the attention he deserves. He walks well on a least and would be a great little walking buddy in the neighborhood.
He is still getting accustomed to being at another home and is a little unsure at first when meeting new people but warms up nicely once he knows he is safe. He would do ok with the little humans as long as they respect his size and age.
We don't know his exact breed but think he is a mix between a puggle and chihuahua, but he could be a mixture of any type of Fiest breed. Getting a DNA test would be interesting to say the least.
Tiny Boy would be a great companion to a single family or a laid-back environment as he is older and likes to be a lap dog or a cuddler on the cozy couch with his human.

Tiny Boy is spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. This dog has tested positive for heartworms, but will undergo treatment in a couple of weeks and will be ready to travel the end of February. The adoption fee is $450 if your adoption is prepaid and final prior to your dog's arrival. An additional $50 will be charged on dogs that are picked up from our Southbury CT adoption center, adopted at an event, or foster home. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with CT HB 5368.

An additional $100 fee will be added for any dogs picked up from the Woburn MA quarantine facility. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with MA Order 405-CD-12 and Order 1-AHO-05.
