We 'made' a toy out of a small sock (baby one) and put a tiny ball (kitten size) in it, and knotted it. Bonnie LOVES it. She chews on it mostly, occasionally will swing it back and forth. Only problem is that ALL of our dogs love them!! We have several. Mine don't rip them up or anything like that. When they were teething, we froze them.

PetSmart/Co have some tiny dog harness. Take her with you, and ask for someone to help you. Lupine collars and leashes has one for a 'girth of 9-14 inches'. Would that fit her? I found this in the DrsFoster&Smith catalog. Their phone # is 1-800-826-7206.

Thank you!!
Right now she weighs about 1 lb. Still shocked my cat the same age as Zara is almost 4 lbs

We got the smallest kitten collar i could find, 6 to 8 inches and it is huge on her.

I went to all the local places and the smallest harness was 8 to 10 inches.. Even at its smallest setting she can just slip right out.

I will look online at the suggested sites

I used a farret harness and leash set from any pet store, the set is about $10 and works great for those first couple of months, helps you keep her safe

I should add I used the cloth farret harness or mesh not the collar material all stores have both, Winnie was only 1lb and it wrapped her up perfectly

WARE Critter Jeans Harness-N-Leash at PETCO

Try this one-it is good for a girth of about 5 to 7 inches and it is really cute. That is what I had for Taz. Petco sometimes has them in stock in the guinea pg section or you can order online.

Wow she must be truly tiny! My ferrets wear tiny puppy collars that are 6 to 8 inches.

I would check the rodent and ferret sections for harnesses.. I use kitten harnesses for my ferrets because the selection isn't my favorite but I bet you could find something.
