Shih Tzu Rescue

Our Pet List

Our Featured Pet...

BUFFY: Buffy is a little black & white female shih tzu who came to us as a turn-in. Buffy had never been away from her home before plus was lacking socialization. She was very frightened at first, however began to trust a bit after being with her foster mom for a while. Buffy will need someone who is willing to be patient with her and allow her time to learn to trust them. Once this happens, Buffy will become an excellent companion for someone. Medically, Buffy has a sensitive skin problem which requires a special medicated shampoo which can be obtained through most veterinarian's offices. If her new family continues with this, it should keep her skin problem under control. Buffy is looking for that special someone who will make her a special part of their life.
