Tiny Timothy isn't exactly like the character he is named after but there are some similarities! Tiny Tim has some mobility issues that occasionally make it hard to walk. He may have come from a "not-so-great" home before ending up at the shelter, as he is terrified of many things. He is slowly but surely learning to trust new people. We hope this little guy will have a happy forever home for the holidays.

Tiny Tim is looking for an adult-only home, and one that has experience with anxious or frightened dogs would be great. A patient, dog-savvy person is what Tiny Tim needs to help him come around to understanding. He is not cuddly or affectionate at this time, but with familiarity and love shown him, he will grow to be a great addition to his future person's home. Tiny Tim is loving when he is not stressed, but he is bitey when he is. He wags his tail in hopes to be picked up. He becomes really happy when comfortable and gets along great with other dogs. He will ask his people to go up or down stairs and loves being able to get out in a yard.

His mobility issues stem from significant arthritis and some disc narrowing along his lumbar spine -- it almost appears as if he may have had a previous spinal injury which has since healed. Both his patellas (kneecaps) are medially luxated (not in proper place) and will not return to their normal position, causing significant gait abnormalities and weakness in his back legs. There is also some mild arthritis in both knees as well. POMDR has consulted with an orthopedic specialist to find the best way to help his mobility.

Tiny Tim joined us from the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after being found as a stray.
