LUCKY!'s Story...
MEET LUCKY!

His name doesn't lie, this little guy really is Lucky! At around 10 years old and weighing around 16 lbs., Lucky found himself homeless and in Philadelphia's animal control shelter after being picked up as a stray. What's truly remarkable about Lucky's story is that he survived on the streets of Philly all on his own while being almost completely blind and deaf! While he may be considered "special needs", Lucky does not let his disability slow him down a bit! He's now living life in a foster home with other dogs, cats and kids!

Lucky is such an easy-going little guy that he seamlessly fit right in with his foster family which includes both large and small dogs, cats and younger kids. He's very happy to lay on the couch next to you and loves his naps. He's very much a people-dog and loves attention. He doesn't mind being picked up and is great about all body handling. He especially loves belly rubs and chin scratches! Lucky is housebroken and will let you know when he needs to go out for a walk by giving some barks. He's also great about letting you know when he needs something, like to find the water bowl or that he's hungry. In addition to being mostly blind due to cataracts and having a hard time hearing due to his age, Lucky has a mild heart murmur which is common in dogs and requires no further treatment at this time. This adorable, muppet-like dog will make a great addition to just about any family!

Lucky is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love! He is vaccinated, microchipped and will be neutered prior to going to his forever home. He is also heartworm and lymes disease negative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LUCKY!, a Philadelphia Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
