Tiny is home

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Adoptions

Tiny has been adopted by a family who adores him. We think this photo says it all – look at those smiles.

Thank you to everyone who helped get him into his new home. He went from scheduled for euthanasia and unable to get up in his kennel at TLAC because he was morbidly obese, yet malnourished, to a healthy, svelte, and beloved part of a young family.

    Tiny, you so deserve such a wonderful family. Tiny has always exhibited a kind and loving spirit, even when he was not feeling well. At adoption sites, Tiny was often paired with smaller dogs in the same pen. While he is much bigger, Tiny was always a perfect gentlemen to all the other dogs. He is such a good walker on leash and so easy going—-often times he would want sit outside his pen on a leash at adoption sites.

    When he went to his foster for his heartworm treatment, I really missed my daily visits to see him. We would go into the PetSmart and lay down on the cool floor and talk—he is a great listner. But, thanks to his great fosters, Tiny came back to the adoption program looking great, revitalized, and as always showing a big smile. His foster parents deserve so much thanks for taking such good care of him. Tiny, have a wonderful life with your new forever family and stop by and visit the adoption sites from time to time so we can say hello.

    If have never visited the dog adoption sites, I encourage you to do so. It is such a powerful experience to visit the sites regularly and develop relationships with the dogs in the dog adoption program. The dogs get to know you. When they see you coming with a leash they start wagging their tails—because they know they are going to get some special attention. It will really make your day to stop by and take a dog for a walk and give him/her some loving attention. It is great therapy and doesn’t cost you anything except for the cost of gas to drive to the adoption sites.
