Hi, I am Chino. That's right. I am a Chihuahua -
Italian Greyhound mix. I am just now learning to
trust humans. My beginnings were not nice nor
were the humans involved kind to me. My
foster mommy is convinced that at some point
in my life I was beaten upside the head. When
this rescue group first got me I would shake in
fear and cower if anyone raised a hand near
my head. I am getting over that. I am fully
vetted and micro chipped. I am looking for a
warm hearted woman with a soft lap. I will need
to earn to trust you but when I do I will be the
best little dog you have ever had. My foster
mommy thinks I would do well in agility. I am
quite athletic. Please consider me if you are
thinking about rescuing a dog. I truly know that
I would probably be best in a home with a
human who understands dogs. I think I need to
be in a home without small children. I also think
I need to be in a home where I can run, frolic
and play without fear of abuse. Please apply
Do you have room in your heart, in your bed and
on your lap for this loveable little chihuahua?
Corky absolutely loves people, is extremely and
is a huge snuggle bug (loves to go under the
covers in bed and curl up to you). He has
somehow managed to squeeze 60lbs of
personality into his 6lb body - he will nudge your
hand, paw at you, and make different faces at
you. Although Corkey does have a medical
heart condition, he loves running around and
playing with soft toys/stuffed animals. He does
not currently require any siblings, however, he
prefers not to engage in play with them. He's
doing a good job at potty training and is so easy
going he can adjust to almost any home or
situation. Corky can't wait for you to fill out an
application at http://www.atailtotell.com/ and
become his forever family!
Buttons is a petite 7 yr old female toy
fox terrier that is sweet but very
scared. Her foster mom is working with
her on overcoming her fear of humans.
Buttons has made great strides in
such a short period, she will eat from
her foster moms hand, explores the
house, etc. Can you open up your
heart and home to her?
Habanero (Hobbie) is an adorable old fella (we
think he’s at least 10). He is a tiny little guy tipping
the scales at seven pounds. He has brown eyes
and big ears. Hobbie’s foster mom says he is set in
his ways. He loves being held like a newborn baby.
Hobbie will try to bite you when he first meets you
but I think that is just his nature. Once you
understand our little man, you will be smitten, and
so will he. When he loves you - he loves you. He
enjoys his naps, and also gets along well with his
foster canine siblings. Hobbie is incredibly loyal and
is protective of his foster mommy and daddy.
When we first got Hobbie half his body was naked.
Now he has a beautiful coat. Please help him move
into his own place where he can run, play, frolic,
and go for long walks. He does need help with his
potty training. Hobbie will need to go to a quiet
relaxed home with experienced Chihuahua owners
and a home without children (or grandchildren).
|A Tail to Tell is proud of the fact that we
provide our foster dogs with the best dog
food that money can buy. We hope that all
of our alumni also eat this incredible food.
Our Lady Charlotte is sweet, gentle, and very quiet,
willing to walk her and feed her well (good food, but not
too much!) until she is shiny and sleek and as happy as
she is meant to be. This shy six year-old (?)
Bernese/Spaniel mix is very trusting, even though she's
been treated badly. Will you be the one to make it up to
her? Charlotte will come to you potty-trained, with all of
her vet work completed, and she'll be ready to begin
her safe and secure new life with you!
Our little Gus is our multi-colored Chihuahua who is
looking for that right home. He is house-trained, so he'll
fit into your home quite quickly.
My name is Kitty. Put your sweet lips a little
closer to the phone - let's pretend that we are
together and not alone. Being with you could be
a reality if you would only hit that adopt button. I
am a very nice little girl but i really want to be in a
home with someone who will spoil me and cuddle
me and just love me more than life. I am 4 yrs old,
9 lbs. i am so ready to wake up on your pillow so
please adopt me. My little head could be next to
yours on the pillow within a few weeks.
Precious is a six pound, 3-4 year old
extremely loyal and very loving
Chihuahua who needs a furever home.

Hello. My name is Fiddler. I am a old beagle/terrier mix.
I am 90% blind but as we all know blind dogs see with
their hearts! I am small just over nine pounds. I seriously
do not look eight years old. I have the face of a puppy
and the softest fur you will ever feel.
I haven't learned Braille yet but I can smell my way
around a home and yard just fine!
I am seriously in need of a furever home. Just go to:
www.atailtotell.com and in just a brief time my little head
could be resting next to yours.
My name is Mrs Howl. I am a three year old
Bichon. I was rescued from a very bad puppy mill.
My feet were so splayed from standing on wire that
when I was finally off the wire my paw pads bled for
over two weeks. I am scared of new things but I am
making progress each day. I am beautiful and
scared. I will need to go to a home with a very
patient woman. A woman who will hold me on her
lap. Take me outside for nice walks. Talk gently to
me and a woman who lives a quiet and peaceful
life. This is what i need to feel safe.
My name is Jack. . I am a one year old 12 pound Jack
Russell Terrier (is this why I am named Jack?). If you
have a ball in your hand, I will follow you anywhere. I AM
Wolfie is a 2 year old, 4 lb purebred male Yorkie
rescued from a puppy mill.
Stimpy was born in Feb, 2011 in a breeding
facility. He spent the first 8 months of his life in a
cage in a dark barn. He has spent every day
since trying to recover from the trauma of that
experience. Stimpy has made some progress but
he will learn to trust and love. He is very fearful
of most people and will run away if approached,
therefore it is imperative that he have a fenced
yard. Stimpy is sweet, gentle. submissive, curious
and smart. He is pretty reliable with his house
training and has not yet learned to accept a
leash. When Stimpy allows you into his world,
even briefly, he makes you feel very special !
With all the recent changes in Punkin's life
he has taken it all in stride. This 6 yrs old
male toy fox terrier is not scared/timid and
seems pretty easy going.
Dougie is a 2 year old, 6 lb purebred
Chihuahua that was rescued from a puppy
Rags is a 5 yr old sweet, but timid, toy fox
terrier. He needs a furever home to show him
what it is like to be part of wonderful family.
Rags needs a forever home with a fenced in
yard to keep him safe. He would do better in
a home with another dog for him to play with.
Bino (Bambino) is a 2 year old, 5 lb
Jake is a sweet, 20 lb boy who has come on hard times.
He became lost and wound up in a shelter with an eye
injury. Sadly, his family never came looking for him. Jakes
gets along well with humans and canines and likes to
cuddle on the sofa with his foster family or with his doggy
friends. Jake gets very excited when he sees his leash
and loves to go for walks. He is house trained and will
whine when he needs to go out. Jake knows basic
commands and is eager to please. He would love to
have a new home where he will be loved and cared for,
for the rest of his life. Jake is easily startled when he is
sleeping, probably a learned response from living on his
own, so he will do best in an all adult home.
My name is Austin Healy and I am an 8
months old Minpin/Doxie mix. I am so very
scared right now because I have never
experienced anything other than the inside of a
barn. I weigh 18 pounds and I am dying to be a
real dog but I need someone with patience to
teach me how. I am adorable to look at but I
need some help getting over my fears.
My name is Cherrio. Won't you adopt me?
My name is Clementine. I am really scared
because of where I came from (the inside of
a dark barn), but I think, I think I like where I

but I am a 4 pound Maltese sporting a haircut

My name is Lilac and I am an almost 3 years old TFT.
I am chubby but you and I both know it is just this
collar that makes me look heavy. I am sweet and
starved for attention.
My name is Memphis and I am the product of a
puppy mill. I did not get great care so when I was
recently rescued I lost almost all my teeth. I am a
lover and a very nice little 6 pound man. I need a
home with stability - kindness and a big warm lap.
My name is Mum and I am a 2 years old - overweight
TFT. I have a look on my face that always looks
worried. I guess being born and raised in a puppy mill
has caused me to be concerned. Please look past the
weight and welcome me into your home. Big girls
need love too.
My name is Pansy and I am an almost five years old
TFT. I weigh 6 pounds and I am really a sweetie.
