 . Bree .
 . Bree .  . Bree .
  • Papillon, Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Bio from current foster mom: Bree is simply a doll. Unfortunately, the breeder who had her before (for the sole purpose of breeding over and over again) did not give her proper vet care and she suffered from bad teeth and therefore had to have several pulled- resulting in her tongue sticking out to one side (not enough teeth to keep the tongue in her mouth). Although this gives the impression of a very senior dog, my vet lives next door to me and we determined she is actually a middle aged lady (6-8 years old) and not really that senior considering tiny dogs like her can live to be 18-20 years old. She is heartworm negative, up to date on all basic shots, spayed, and completely housetrained. This poor girl is the most devoted, loving, adorable dog I have had the pleasure of fostering. She shadows me everywhere, is very smart and obedient and gets along with other animals. She loves laps, and her trick is that she will literally fly from the ground into your arms- she loves, LOVES to be held. I think she was neglected for so long that she finally realizes that now is her time to shine- and shine she does! Bree is about 5 lbs of cuteness..she would do well with singles, couples, and families with older children (or those raised around tiny dogs). www.tinypawsrescue.com for an application, please no first time dog owners, must have an excellent vet reference to be considered.

 . Willie and Teddy .  . Willie and Teddy .  . Willie and Teddy .
  • Maltese
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Willie, 8 years, 6 lbs Willie is the alpha dog even though he is the smaller of the two! He is a prima donna and will come running to jump on your lap and be petted if he hears you giving affection to Teddy or another person. Basically, he basically thinks "What, What? Someone giving out affection and I'm not being the recipient of it?!! Not acceptable!" :) He has a Napoleonic complex and thinks he can take on a German Shepherd or Pit Bull in his sleep (obviously he is wrong, but he did not get the memo - so don't let him near big dogs!). He is not afraid of big dogs or scary people, but cowers away from vacuum cleaners and thinks thunder is evil! He hates the rain and refuses to go outside to potty if it's wet, so we have to nudge him outside, although he will still look at you like, "What?! Please tell me you really don't expect me to get my little paws wet, do you mother?" He is like a self-absorbed teenager with an attitude...if only he didn't look so cute! Teddy, 7 years, 12 lbs Teddy is a big, cuddly teddy bear. He is so kind and gentle - he is a pushover. Willie bosses him around, and Teddy never seems to mind. He is extremely treat- and toy-driven, so he is really good with tricks! He loves his little squeaky beaver and tennis balls. He loves to play fetch and tug of war. He will crouch in front of the couch with his snout under the couch for minutes on end barking and crying if he can't get to a ball -- of course trying to get your attention so you can help him get it out. He will sniff out hidden toys and treats even from the best hidden places! And once he finds them, he will cry and scratch until you give it to him. He does not like being man-handled, but instead of becoming aggressive (let's say with a big toddler pulling his tail) he will come and hide behind you and follow you everywhere you go so that you'll carry him and protect him. He will also scratch you when he wants to be petted, but when Willie comes to steal the attention from him, he will just move out of the way and look at you as if saying, "It's ok mom, I'll wait my turn once you are done with Willie." Teddy is like the stereotypical, chunky, big-hearted kid in the movies that everyone pushes around, but the audience loves! Both are lap dogs and love to be petted. They need to go to a home where there are no large dogs or small children. www.tinypawsrescue.com for an application Crosspost

She was very thin and was flea infested and ticks one her. She is amazing when it comes to a bath and loves to play with other dogs and adores me. Meko was terrified of people and dogs in the beginning. It is like Meko lived in a cage and never had been socialized. She follows me everywhere and gives me kisses but very hesitant to be picked up put once in your arms she loves it. Meko is a great little girl who does potty on puppy pads and outside. She loves to explore outside and is very smart. She loves her little squeaky toys and treats. Meko is about two year old and weighs 9lbs She was under 7lbs when we got her. Meko needs an experienced dog owner who is patient with her to earn her trust. Meko will start out as a feral dog hiding under beds etc yet she will follow you every where and wants to be with you but needs the trust when you approach her to pick her up.
