This is Ruffles, a female Shih Tzu estimated to be around 1-year-old. She came to LABM with a large tumor on one of her front paws, which turned out to be cancerous. She underwent surgery (amputation of her leg) and is now cancer free.
Ruffles weighs around 12 lbs, is heartworm positive (undergoing treatment), spayed and up to date on all immunizations. She is available for adoption.
