Rescued Dog Needs Forever Home


My name is Ellie, but my foster mom calls me Tiny. I’m a dachshund/Chihuahua mix female that weighs only 12 lbs – teeny tiny. I am about 11 months old and am full of life! I love to roll in the grass, chase squirrels and birds, and wrestle with the big female dog in my foster home. I am good at playing fetch with a ball or stuffed toys. In fact, stuffed animals that squeak are my favorite thing. I often carry one with me. I am housebroken and know how to use a doggy door, and I am well behaved in the house. I am up to date on shots, am taking a monthly heartworm preventative, and recently was spayed, so I’m good to go! I am looking for a loving home with gentle people who will take good care of me. I’d prefer a home with a nice yard since I love to be outdoors when the weather is pretty. If you are interested in adopting me, please contact my foster mom at vickie.mclemore@gmail.com. The adoption fee of $95 will benefit a local nonprofit, Lucky Dog Rescue, that cares for homeless pets.
