Timmy is the ultimate lapdog! This precious little guy has a lot of love to give and all he asks in return is LOTS of cuddling. We dare you to look into those big brown eyes and not fall in love. If you are looking for a tiny sweetie to look at you lovingly, keep you warm while you read or watch TV, and snuggle up to you under the covers at night, Timmy is the most qualified dog you will ever meet!
When he came to CRT from an area shelter, Timmy was severely emaciated, ill, and in a lot of pain. After a dental appointment, some medication, and a lot of love and food, he is beginning to gain healthy weight, move more, and slowly come out of his shell. He is starting to show curiosity about his surroundings and has just begun to show a spark of interest in toys. We are sure that with a secure home and a predictable routine, he will continue to blossom and be a happy member of the family. Timmy will still need to gain another pound or so before he is at his healthy weight, but he loves his dry dog food and has developed a taste for roasted chicken, so we know he’ll get there. The starvation he was subjected to has given him some arthritis, but a good diet, some joint supplements, and a little pain medication will keep him feeling good.
Don’t be put off by Timmy’s age- he’s no cranky old man! He prefers that people call him ‘experienced’. This life experience has made him a well-behaved gentleman who is perfect on his leash and harness and an expert cuddle-buddy. He even tolerates his baths and nail trims with dignity despite their unpleasantness. Timmy is a quiet little guy, but will talk to you to let you know what he wants with a cute little growly bark. He is beginning to develop cataracts, but gets around just fine both in and outside of his foster home. He gets along well with other dogs, but would be fine as your only pup as long has he isn’t left alone for long periods of time.
Timmy still has several years of love and joy to give his perfect family. All he wants is a quiet home where he will be loved and cuddled the way he deserves to be. If you’d like to be the one who makes Timmy’s dreams come true, please fill out an application to meet him today!
