Toothless senior dog needs a home

Mostly toothless senior dog in need of a loving person to take him home

A “mostly toothless,” senior dog is waiting at a busy California animal control facility for a loving person to notice him and take him home. The 11-year-old Chihuahua, dubbed Tater Tot, has been at the Riverside County Animal Control since February 8.

On Sunday, the Facebook page, Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs, writes:

Shelter notes 📝: “Geriatric, missing most teeth”

 How could anyone resist this tiny senior guy? Dog friendly and pretty much toothless. Let’s share him for a reputable rescue or adopter.
