As a rambunctious and playful teacup chihuahua, Tinker was always the life of the party. She was loved by his family and adored by anyone who saw her. Her short stature and zealous energy drew people to her.
One day, a terrible, terrible thing happened to little Tinker. She was attacked by a bigger dog while out on a walk.
