Callie's Story...

Date Animal Rescued: January 25, 2011
Date Adopted:
Adoption Donation: $200.00
All About Me: Callie is doing well considering what she has been through in her life. She will need someone that can spend time with her and earn her trust. She gets along great with other dogs and she is just curious about the cats in her foster home. She is working on her housetraining and will need someone who will be consistant and keep her on a schedule.

Healing Hearts Small Animal Rescue was contacted by a 'breeder' who wanted us to take some of his dogs that he was retiring from breeding. He claimed to be a 'responsible' breeder and also a groomer in the past so we were hoping for the best with these dogs.

Sadly, our worst fears were confirmed when we met the dogs today. They all smell terrible. Several of them have been partially shaved and others are hanging in mats and tangles. We took 5 dogs: Winston, Callie, Jasmine, Tiffany and Macy. The only records these dogs came with was of a booster shot they received in 2010, no rabies or other vaccines were noted on their health record. These dogs are currently at the vet's office and will receive their medical treatments on Thursday. Their pictures will be updated after they have had time to recover from surgery and a proper grooming.

When you see puppies in pet stores, flea markets or from 'breeders' remember that if you purchase one of these puppies that you are only lining the pockets of breeders with more money so that they can keep more dogs in the same terrible condition that these poor dogs have suffered!!

All known information about our dogs is listed under notes. We do not know how big a puppy will grow to be in adulthood. Please research the particular breed to see if this pet may be a good choice as a new member of your family.

Your first step in adopting a new family member is to fill out the free online adoption application. The adoption form must be filled out completely with phone numbers and a vet reference before it will be processed. Your application will not be processed without this information.

We sometimes receive many applications on one dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note that adoptions are NOT done on a first come, first serve basis, and filling out an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for inaccurate or false information. We are looking for the best possible home for this animal. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Callie, a Old Fort Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Old Fort, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Old Fort.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Old Fort already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Old Fort breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Old Fort paves the way for another one to be saved.
