Tiny Tim has been adopted.
Tiny Tim comes to us all the way from Tennessee and was found abandoned in an apartment. He is good with other dogs and cats and we have been told by the staff at the shelter that he is super sweet.
Senior dogs are often over looked in the shelter environment and in fact they are the first to be euthanized even though they are hoping they will get a second chance at life just like the young dog in the cage beside them. Little Tiny Tim is one of those older dogs hoping for a second chance at life.
This little guy was abandoned by someone who once owned him and left him all alone in an apartment. We have no idea how long he was waiting for someone to come back to get him. Each day must have seemed like an eternity for this little guy and certainly very depressing. When Save Me Rescue was asked if we would give this little guy a second chance at life his foster home jumped at the opportunity to welcome him into their home and instantly thought of the Charles Dickens character – Tiny Tim.
When most people think about welcoming a dog into their lives they think of a warm, cuddly, tail wagging, wet nosed puppy. Puppies demand patience and energy and while puppies eventually become wonderful family members, there are a lot of good reasons to consider adopting an older dog. Senior companions can be as cute and loveable as those puppies however, they have a special blend of charms.
Of course, senior dogs are also warm and cuddly, tail wagging, wet nose kissers; however, they are past the puppy stage of chewing your shoes or furniture, having accidents indoors, and keeping you up at night. Senior dogs are less demanding, they love to cuddle the day away, they love to be petted and they provide you with instant companionship. A senior dog, given a new chance for a loving home will reward your care with unwavering devotion.
His foster home has been told that he is heart-worm negative, he has been neutered and that his teeth are in good condition. He is very skinny and currently weighs 7 pounds. He is good with other dogs and cats, he is house trained and crate trained. Tiny Tim was infested with fleas when he was rescued and has since been treated, however his skin has some scabs and sores that are now healing nicely.
