A normal donkey calf usually weighs 50-60 pounds at birth, but when Tiny Tim was born, he weighed under 10 pounds and looked like a bunny. Due to his miniscule size, he had a bad liver and several other health complications.
A couple decided to take care of Tiny Tim and give him a fair chance at life. They used a syringe to feed him at timely intervals. With dedicated love and care from his adoptive parents, Tim started growing up like a healthy donkey.
Today, Tiny Tim is oblivious to the fact that he is a mini-donkey. He spends his days nestled up with other dogs, getting back rubs from his dad and following his mom around like an adorable puppy!
