Facts about Tanjee

  • Breed: Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Tanjee is a 4-5 year old wonderful, friendly, happy, outgoing, playful, and snuggly little guy. He is a petite little fella, only 8 pounds or so(he has put on some mush needed weight with us). Tanjee also has CDK, which is not the end of the world and can be managed and live a full life for years to come. One in 10 American adults, more than 20 million, have some level of CKD. (Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) Not only that, it is quite common in our dogs and cats as they age. Chronic Kidney Disease can be be caused by stress, a poor diet, infection, trauma, a genetic issue, and environmental toxins(vaccinations, pesticides, preservatives...) Well-that is just a little of what I learned in my crash course on CDK, and I am sure there is a wealth of info out there that I have not pondered over. Little Tanjee here was just diagnosed with CDK. He is perhaps in the beginning stages(thirst and frequent urination-although he does great in the house and keeps his crate dry at night). The kidneys cannot be "regenerated" but the disease can be slowed, or some vets have even gone so far to say it can be "stalled". Many dogs and cats go on to live full and active lives for years to come. Without going into too many details, Tanjee is on a wholesome human grade diet with added prebiotics and probiotics-no dry kibble, no dyes, no preservatives and plenty of fresh water. He is a very active little guy, which is great for him. He was quite thin and is putting on weight, another good sign. He is not on any medication(there is soooo much information as far as that as well as the high vs. low protein) We are still learning, guided by our vet and Tanjee seems to be doing terrific. He is ready for his forever home, someone that will keep him on a natural path to maintain his health. We are asking for a donation in lieu of an adoption fee to help with some expenses. Tanjee is a TERRIFIC happy, energetic, loving and playful little guy, he will be the perfect companion for some lucky family!! Please email Kristine at

About Eye on the Sparrow

About Our Rescue Group...

All of our pets are in foster homes, from Sheridan to North Aurora, IL. We take in many special needs dogs,some physically, mentally or behaviorally challenged. Some of them have been abused or neglected, many are seniors, most just need some understanding and patience. A lot of them have never heard a vacuum before or even felt a kind pat on their heads. Fostering them prepares them for the life they so richly deserve when a kind person adopts from us. When you adopt a shelter dog, you are making a giant step in reducing euthanasia for all these great dogs looking for a home. It is not their fault, it is the fault of the human that previously was involved in their life. Thanks for checking out our website, maybe you will find the pal of your dreams.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an online application on our website, Requirements vary as per the individual dog's needs as far as time alone, children, other pets, fenced yard vs. leash walking and such. Our adoption donations can range from $99 for less adoptable/older dogs, and higher for puppies and other highly sought after dogs(which helps us take in needy often medically challenged dogs and cats.)
Our contract states we have the right to visit the dog, check up periodically as well as take the dog back if necessary. We get first right to the dog if adopter chooses not to keep him. We want all adopters to realize this is a serious commitment and want our dogs to go to safe, loving homes.
