WonTon is a tiny little boy with a big, fiery personality.
His heart is pure gold, but he has had to build up his defenses in order to survive.
WonTon was rescued while dodging traffic at a busy intersection. He was such a wreck though that is was obviously clear he had been the victim of longer-term neglect and abuse.
Physically, we had his teeth cleaned and his ruptured anal glands repaired, and more. But emotionally, the scars will take more time and work to heal.
WonTon is all of three pounds. Being teacup-size though did not stop a monster from hitting him, and probably screaming at him too. With patience and a stable routine in a gentle home, trust will develop.
When relaxed, he is loving and playful. But with new people, his guard is up.
WonTon is a Chihuahua, neutered male, approximately 6 years of age. He is fine with some dogs, but picky who he likes.
He debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. We think he will be overjoyed, and relieved, when he realizes that humans can be very loving and depended upon.
