Tinky — A young, female, Chihuahua with big ears and a delicate build. She was surrendered because her owners couldn’t keep two dogs in their rental home. She’s about a year old and very shy around people, but she’s good with other dogs. Sunshine and a nice warm blanket make for an ideal place for her. She needs to go to a home with no small children.
