Ellie is a 9 year old 7 lb white Maltese/Shih Tzu who would love a home with a stay at home person and another small fur baby. She’s a beautiful Maltese mix that's all tomboy and loves hanging out in a fenced in-backyard. She’s a little shy at first but once she settles in she likes to sleep next to her human in the big bed. Ellie is working on house training, but is a total pro when it comes to pee pads! Ellie is fostering in the Northeast. Please visit our main site for more information or to apply to adopt.
Shih Tzu and Furbaby Rescue, Inc. is a national rescue organization that is dedicated to the rescuing and rehoming of toy purebred and mixed breed dogs. We accept dogs in need from shelters, other rescuers, and individuals giving up their pets for a variety of reasons. Our furbabies are examined and treated by our veterinarians, innoculated, and spayed or neutered before placement. They are also thoroughly temperament assessed. We believe that, somewhere, there is a home for every dog, but that we have a responsibility to place our dogs into homes that will best meet their needs, both physically and emotionally. We look for people with patience and loving hearts, and an understanding of the furbaby mind. Shih Tzus and Furbabies, Inc is a non-profit organization recognized under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Your donation may be tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
