Facts about Max

  • Breed: Shih Tzu
  • Color: White - With Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
MAX IS A SWEET AND AMAZING BOY WITH SPECIAL NEEDS. Max was abandoned by his family to animal control because they said he was blind and not eating. The fact is was that Max was neglected medically and needed help. He had an ulcerated cornea from chronic dry eye and is a diabetic. We were able to save his eye and got him on his much needed insulin to balance his blood sugar. He is well on his way to a healthy life and looking for his forever home! Max is vision impaired and will need eye drops his entire life. That does not stop Max from playing and enjoying life! He loves to take walks and enjoys the company of other nice dogs. He is happy to hang out with his people or play with his toys. He will always need his twice daily insulin and must have his blood sugar watched and regulated. His new family needs to be able to commit to the long haul which includes giving him his shots every 12 hours and being vigilant about his sugar check ups. He would be ideal in home that has worked with diabetics and has someone at home to keep his feeding and shots on schedule. Max is an amazing dog with a loving disposition. He deserves a committed family who won't abandon him again. He will provide unconditional love in return! Max is neutered, microchipped, up to date on his shots, and heartworm negative . He is looking for a committed foster in the Skokie, IL area or a qualified loving adopter. If you are interested in Max please contact us. If you can help sponsor hime while we look for a perfect home, please contact us! We are a home based foster rescue that works full time so we will respond to your request as quickly as possible.

About Rescue Tails Animal Welfare

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue Tails Animal Welfare is dedicated to rehoming pets from high kill shelters. We choose an animal one at a time and evaluate what issues caused the animal to end up in the shelter and address those issues. Most often we find behavioral issues and/or medical issues . We deal with whatever it is to the best of our ability and then place the pet up for adoption to a responsible pet guardian. It is our goal to prevent the pet from returning to the system again. We work with the pets and carefully match them to their forever homes.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt any animal from Rescue Tails we require a completed and verified adoption application. Once we can review the application, we can set up a meet and greet. We ask that all members of the household including pets are available for us and prospective pet to meet. Providing that goes well, we will set an appointment with you for a home visit. If all goes well we can proceed to the final step of finalizing the adoption.
