On January 27, CPR rescued nine Shih Tzus from Chatham County Animal Services that had been seized from a breeder. The dogs were very badly matted, covered in urine and feces. Volunteers spent six hours that day and more hours over the next week working to free them from their years of neglect. Photos that are posted are not representative of the beauties they will be when they can be professionally groomed and have their fur regrow.
We are still learning about each dog and will post updated info from foster parents and volunteers as available.
None of the dogs have had any experience around children, let alone much other human touch. All dogs will be looking for homes without any small children.
