THIS IS LIL’BIT….and she is a little bit of this, little bit of that!  This teeny, 4 lb (underweight), 2-3 yr old, Maltese Yorkie or Maltese LH Chi mix, was abandoned in the valley, in the heat, no food no water.  When asked if we would take her by another rescue who didn’t have foster care available, of course we acquiesced.  This little doll was, without question, abused, neglected and left for dead.  She is still terribly underweight and fearful after being with us for a few weeks…but she is beginning to settle down.  She LOVES to cuddle and snuggle as close as she can to you in bed.  She clings to dear life when you hold her.  She is starting to ask for attention but, as you can see by the pictures, she is VERY camera shy and these were the best we could get! Lil’Bit is not at all aggressive, but when you do something she doesn’t like, she will let you know.  That being said, I can put my nose in her face, my hands in her mouth and she will not bite.   The ideal home for Lil’Bit will be one of patience and understanding.  While she is still a bit of an enigma to us, watching her come around a “lil’bit” every day is rewarding.  She even does her business outside or on a pp pad, never an accident (but no guarantees at your house!)What her life was before, we know was not happy….but we will make sure that her life going forward will be secure and filled with love.

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
