WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Washington Animal Rescue League has a new Pet Of The Week. Here's what WARL had to say about Tiny:
"Poor Tiny. This little rat terrier spent much of her life as a proverbial "lab rat" in a testing facility where animals were treated with less care than the office coffee pot. This inhumane treatment on part of research personnel eventually led to the confiscation of Tiny and the rest of the animals in the fall of 2010.
When Tiny arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League, she was terrified of human contact and wouldn't let anyone near her. But a kind-hearted adopter was able to see past the 10-year-old mixed rat terrier's fear to the sweet soul inside and welcomed her into her heart and home.
Over the next year, Tiny and her human companion forged a strong, unbreakable bond. But when financial issues prevented the woman from giving Tiny the care she deserved, she put Tiny's needs before her own-the hallmark of true love-and returned her to the League where she could be adopted to someone who could continue to provide for her.
Today Tiny is a healthy senior dog who is almost recovered from a broken toe. She is friendly, affectionate, and wants nothing more than to share her golden years with that special someone. And after all she's been through, she deserves a happy ending. Perhaps it could be with you?"
