Hi there, we are 34 Chihuahua mixes who were living a nightmare in the most deplorable and disgusting hoarder house imaginable. The floors were covered in filth, dank with urine, floorboards missing, and dogs in cages stacked high. It was truly hard to believe humans, dogs, or any living creature could survive like that. October 29th was FREEDOM DAY! We were all terrified and some of us still are but coming around. Even though our lives sucked, that’s all we knew, and change can be scary. All of us were missing hair from fleas/filth/poor nutrition. Many of us were in desperate need of dental cleanings and teeth extractions. It was quite an undertaking for 4 Little Paws Rescue and through social media, so many lovely humans offered to foster us. Now that we have all been vaccinated, spayed, or neutered with dental work done, and some of us already feeling friendly, we can start our journey to finding forever homes!

My name is Tiny Tim, and as my name suggests, I’m a little squirt, about 5 years old, 7.4 lbs and I am a Chihuahua mix. I’m friendly with people and shy at first, but I warm up quickly, eager to trust and fall in love with someone. Like many of my “siblings” we were never snuggled or loved, so now most of us, me included are soaking in every bit of attention and kindness we can get and passing out kisses whenever needed. I get along great with other dogs but I’m a bit indifferent and not feeling playful yet and I’m not sure what doggy toys are for. My foster mom says I’m a born lap dog with an easygoing attitude, very low maintenance, and a quick learner. I like to be held and I’m very quiet and unassuming. I am well-behaved, no digging or chewing, I rarely bark, I am doing well with housebreaking and I also know how to use a potty pad. I just had a neuter and dental cleaning so I am officially ready to find a forever home. There is a rescue dog transport van leaving Texas on 12/28 and I plan to be on board and on my way to meet whoever adopts me!
