About Timmy

Chihuahua / Miniature Pinscher
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Timmy was surrendered when his owner passed away. Once Timmy warms up, he becomes affectionate and enjoys attention. He is very playful and happy go lucky. Timmy can be overdramatic at times with things like putting on a collar/leash. He can be a bit of a bully with other dogs his size so he probably would be happiest if he could be an only dog and have an owner(s) who is able to give him attention and take the time to play with him. Timmy is 6 years old and 12 pounds. Please help Timmy find the loving home he deserves. Update: Timmy had tested positive for Lymes' a few months ago and has since completed his antibiotic treatment. Little Timmy is otherwise running around feeling good and available for adoption. We do NOT ship our animals. All adoptive families must travel to us to meet their adoptive dog/cat. Applicants must live within a 2 hour radius from Sparta/Andover (07871/07821). Please understand that we are an animal shelter and thus unable to say whether the dogs are housebroken as they are not in homes.
