Facts about Carlo

  • Breed: Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8196887-14-0025

Carlo was raised by a family with small children since a tiny puppy. Unfortunately his family was too busy to give him the time and attention required of a baby. He was kept locked up most of the time and even got stepped on by the family toddler, fracturing his back leg. Finally he was surrendered to Emmy's Hope Rescue.

Sweet Carlo didn't have to wait long to get his second chance at a good life. He was so happy to find a new home with a family that seemingly wanted him. But something went terribly wrong after only a year! Emmy's Hope was notified that Carlo's second family had given him away to a man at a Walmart, who then returned him to Emmy's Hope Rescue.  It was apparent that Carlo had not been well cared for by his second adoptive family. :(

Carlo has forgiven his second family, as he did his first family. He is a sweet natured, happy-go- lucky little guy that likes to run and play with his dog friends and cuddle with a loving human.

They say, "Three's a charm!"  Carlo has patiently been waiting and hoping to find a third family, one that will love him for the rest of his life.

Estimated birthdate: February 2013

Approximate weight: 18 lbs.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Application
An adoption application is required, providing information about your family, as well as past and current pets.
2. Vet check
You give us permission to contact your veterinarian regarding current and/or past pets. You must have a good vet history, showing that you are a responsible pet owner.
3. Home visit
A home visit will be scheduled.
• To adopt a dog, you must have a fenced area. We will check it to make sure there are no escape routes. We will not leave a dog with you unless problem areas are fixed.
• To adopt a cat, the home environment must be safe for the cat. There needs to be a place where the cat can be isolated for several days until the new cat & current pets can get used to each other.
4. Trial run
There will be a minimum of a one week trial at your home, to make sure that the pet you have chosen is a good match with your family. If the pet does not work out, for whatever reason, we will take the pet back.
5. Adoption finalization
When we all agree that the pet is a good match with your family, the adoption can be finalized. An adoption contract is signed. You must promise to be a responsible and loving pet owner for the entire life of your new pet.
6. Adoption fees
• Dogs - $150
• Cats - $100
This fee helps defray the cost of vetting but by no means covers all the money already spent on your new pet. All rescues are completely vetted: all shots up-to-date, spayed/neutered and parasite free. (Dogs) are micro-chipped, heartworm negative and currently taking a heart worm preventative. (Cats) are tested and negative for FIV and FELV. Other health issues may also have been treated and you will get a history of anything that’s been done.
