Tail Waggers

Sinatra is an approximately 1 1/2 year old, neutered male Chihuahua. Sinatra came to PALS with two other small dogs and he was by far the shyest of the “Rat Pack,” as we lovingly named them. Since he’s been with us at PALS, though, he’s definitely starting to open up, and his very loving personality is starting to shine through. We have him on a fairly strict diet to help him shed some unwanted pounds, and we engage him in some exercise every day. Sinatra gets along very well with the other small dogs that we’ve introduced him to here at PALS, and he loves being a part of our small dog play groups. More than anything, though, he loves spending time with our volunteers, and is an expert level lap dog, content to soak up all the love and affection he gets.
