MEET THIMBLE — a precocious 7-month-old (born May 2016), 5-lb Maltese! She may gain a pound or so at maturity, but she is a petite girl. Thimble was misdiagnosed in the shelter with Shaker syndrome, but since we have had her seen no signs of it. The vet has given her a clean bill of health! She is lovable, funny, and a bit of a firecracker; but she is a sweetheart all around. She loves to PLAY, PLAY, PLAY, loves toys, likes to play fetch and hanging out with her foster brothers and sisters. She even loves her sometimes-grumpy foster sister and follows her around the house. She will snuggle up next to any of the other doggies in the house, so she MUST have another young, small dog in the home who loves to play. Thimble enjoys walks and we are teaching her how to walk on leash — after all, she is just a puppy. She can be skittish at noises she doesn’t recognize, but she figures it out soon enough. Thimble is very shy with strangers but bonds quickly to her people. She is still learning potty pads but mostly uses them when indoors. She likes to go out in yard and do her business. The ideal home for Thimble will have another small playful dog or two, kids over 8 yrs old welcomed…and a loving family who understands what it takes to care for and train a puppy. If you are not up for that task…please adopt an adult or senior pup who needs you!
