On Sept. 16, a tiny, inert Chihuahua pup was picked up along a country road near Moose Lake and brought to the Friends of Animals Shelter in Cloquet.

Today the pup, named Tinderbell, is five to six months old, energetic, friendly, enjoys the company of other dogs and cats, loves to curl up in a friendly lap - and is in need of a very special place to call home.

Tinkerbell suffers from a fragile medical condition known as hydrocephalus, in which excessive fluid is found within and around the brain, especially in toy breeds such as Chihuahuas. Prednizone must be administered as needed, and the condition also tends to shorten an animal's life span as well.

For more information on adopting Tinkerbell, contact the FOA shelter at 879-1655.
