Tiny is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 6-month-old Chihuahua mix, who can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:
I’m Tiny, which is a fitting name for me since I’m only six pounds! I’m a sweet little Chihuahua puppy looking for my perfect forever family to show me that the world isn’t such a scary place.
I’m a little shy at first and am working to build my trust in people. But once I warm up to you, I love giving kisses and snuggling up on your lap. I also like playing with my toys, snacking on treats and playing with my foster puppy siblings.
I’m looking for a calm and quiet forever home with someone who will help me with my confidence and training. I’m learning how to walk on a leash and master this whole house training thing, though I seem to get the idea of using pee pads just fine. I would probably do okay with older children and get along well with other little dogs. (I haven’t met cats yet.)
To adopt Tiny or other pets from the Humane Society, see the Petango adoption site or call 202-576-6664.
