Tiny is about 13 years old (but she's spry as Bambi!). Here's her story, as told by Nate, who was her first champion (this was our introduction to Tiny):
"Tiny is a sensational senior short-haired Chihuahua who really lives up to her name. At 10 years old and 2 pounds, she makes up for her size in sweetness, and is compatible and friendly to everyone who meets her. Her original owner sold her over the internet to someone who believed she was a young dog, and appeared malnourished and miserable on her first visit to the vet. This April she was relinquished to Wilshire Animal Hospital after her new owner realized she could not take care of Tiny’s medical needs. Tiny is definitely a special little lady, and although she has only 3 teeth remaining, she enjoys life and appreciates all the love and treats we give her. Although veterinarians believe Tiny is spayed, because of her size and age, it cannot be surgically determined. She recently underwent a major dental, and is having her vaccinations done gradually a few weeks apart. She is currently healthy and has no major medical concerns. Tiny needs a forever home where she can be around her owner all day and who can pay special attention to her needs and care."
I honestly don't know what kind of life Tiny had before Nate found her, If she was mistreated in her former life, you wouldn't know it. She is an angel. She just wants to be in your arms.
We are spoiling the heck out of her. She has the complete run of the house. God bless this little princess!
