Hi ya, it’s me Eric and I’m glad to see you checking out my page! 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: Lhasa Apso

Gender: I’m a boy dog

Colors: Handsome White and Brown

Age: The vet says about 8 years young

Weight: Around 18 pounds

Special Needs: Okay so, yes I am special. I came to Lone Star Rescue with a back injury so I can’t climb stairs or jump on and off sofas. And, I had heart worms. Unfortunately, even though I was successfully treated, my heart sustained damage that didn’t go away. So, I take 5 pills in the morning and 5 pills at night. I take them very well, wrapped in a treat. Some people would consider me too damaged to want to adopt me so I’m looking for a family or a person as special as I am!

Ideal Home: Since I get along with everyone, both male and female dogs, I can go into a home with other pets. Or I would be just fine as an only dog too, so I’m versatile.

Now for the good stuff!-
I’m a laid back kind of guy. I love to be with you and to be loved on you but I’m not a clingy guy. If you don’t have time, I can hang out happily by myself. I don’t really play with toys or go on long walks. But I can go on short, easy strolls. I am okay in a crate as long as you don’t leave me in there for a long time. Otherwise, I will bark at you to let you know, I’m all done being in a crate!

I am a sweet guy who is easy going and I prefer to be left alone while I eat. I drink a lot of water because of my medications and so I go out to potty a lot too. Maybe it’s a long shot but I’m hoping someone out there is just as special as I am and will adopt me soon!

If you’d like to ask more questions about me, email my foster mom at robin.baker@cgg.com. Start the process of adopting me or one of the other pups by filling out the application found at www.shihtzu-rescue.com.

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.
