***The NMDR Rehab Team has been working with Timmy to help him work through some behavior challenges. He needs a family who will be extra patient with him, and who preferably has previous experience with dogs. The NMDR Behavior Manager will talk to prospective adopters to explain the work we've done with him, and what will be the best home situation for him.

Timmy is a shy little tan and white Chihuahua/Pug mix fellow. It's taken him awhile, but he's beginning to learn that life in a home is a good thing. Though he doesn't actively seek out attention, he is learning to trust his foster mom for pets and attention. Timmy absolutely loves to go for walks and does great on a leash. He also gets along well with other dogs, particularly other calm dogs. He'll need another dog in his forever home to help him continue learning to trust. Timmy will also need a fenced-in yard to keep him safe while exploring outside and while continuing to work on his potty training skills. Timmy needs a quiet, patient home, with no children, in which he can continue to make progress at his own pace.

Prior to rescue, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as housetraining and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
