Flea just celebrated his 19th birthday. He can usually be found here at the shelter accompanying his dog mom in the office. You might recognize this little guy, not just because he is the tiniest dog ever, but he has been a rep of NHS in many photos!
He helps his shelter friends by posing for many photos and helping with arrangements for donations.
Amber adopted him back in 2017, and had to help nurse him back to health.
When she first brought him home, he couldn’t eat on his own had to be fed every 3 hours. She would wake up and feed him with her foster kitten Broccoli, every night for the first 5 nights until they could figure out what was wrong.
They finally diagnosed him with a small tumor in his pancreas, and got him on medication to keep it under control. He is now living his best life. He loves hanging with his mom and you can usually find him sunbathing.
Flea is not a big fan of baths, or kittens that take over his bed.
“He loves hot dogs, his bed, and talking to people in the drive thru. He gets so excited he yells perked up.” – Amber, Flea’s dog mom.
