Meet Timothy! Timothy came to TCHS as a transfer from another facility. Was adopted and returned due to unrealistic expectations. He was around a baby in the home and was too active around the baby. He is a puppy that just needs to learn manners around small children.

Unknown how he does with other dogs and cats. Slow and proper introductions are always recommended when bringing a new animal into the home. It can take weeks or months for animals to settle into their new environment so time and patience are your best tools.

It is not recommended to bring a new animal into the home and immediately introduce it to resident pets. Ask a TCHS staff for tips on how to ease the transition. Regular play sessions with your new friend will help burn off energy and build a bond of trust. We recommend providing them with lots of durable toys such as Kongs, Nylabones and Benebones.

A trainer would be a good idea to help them build confidence and learn manners. They should be fed measured portions of a high-quality puppy food to help them maintain a healthy weight and long-term health.

Come meet Timothy today! Donations and adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter surgeries, microchipping, vaccinating, de-worming, any medical procedures and general care.
