Hi ya, it’s great that you’re checking out my page! I’m East Ranger and it’s great to meet you. I’m looking for a new family to call my own! Could it be you?

Here’s my stats:
Possible Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: I’m a male, guy, hombre
Colors: White with gold brown patches
Age: 7 years old
Weight: 17 pounds

Special Needs: Female only household

Ideal Home: As it says above, I REALLY don’t like human males-sorry all you guys out there. I would do best as an only dog or maybe with another really calm, quiet dog
Now for the good stuff!-

Mostly I’m a laid back boy, though I will play a little bit with some of the other dogs. I love toys, the squeaky kind. I like boy and girl dogs okay but what I really prefer is my female human! I love to cuddle with my foster mom and her sister and I follow them around the house. You might call me a bit of a Jekyll and Hide…you’ve heard the story. To the gals out there, I’m a sweet, loving, cuddle bug, momma’s boy. But when guys come around, I get terrified and I BITE. I know, it’s bad and I mean no disrespect to half the human population, but I just can’t help it. I love to go on car rides and I also love to go on walks! Not a big fan of crates-are you? I’m not on any medications and I don’t have any current medical issues.

My foster mom says, ‘I can usually count on East occupying the bath mat when I step out of the shower. A real mommy’s boy!’

So, if you can make sure I will live in an all-girl household and you are prepared to keep me away from the guys, please give me a chance to be your boy! To start the process of adopting me or one of the other pups by filling out the application found at

PS. I've had ALL my vetting, and oh boy, it was a lot. Here's what I had done:
Distemper/Parvo shots – TWICE. One shot doesn't cut it.
Bordetella shots - ALSO TWICE.
Spay/Neuter-of course.
A fecal exam so I don't have any bad worms. Treatment if I do.
A heartworm test. Treatment if I am positive for heart worms
BLOODWORK to make sure my liver and kidneys are working well, because you know, we doggies often have issues in the liver and kidneys.
A DENTAL exam AND cleaning if I needed it- yep, all my toofies are checked out.
See, that's a LOT. Ask your vet - that's a LOT.
