Facts about Kasia

  • Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Kasia is an 8 year old shihtzu interviewing for her perfect person. She was brought into Chicago Animal Care and Control because her family could no longer afford her. While there her one eye was removed. Her remaining eye has chronic dry eye common to the breed so she will need life long eye care including daily's drops and salves. She sits nicely for her eye care that she gets 3 times a day. Kasia is a friendly and fun little girl. She loves to do play bows with her family and is overall amazingly happy. She is fine with other dogs but really isn't interested in engaging with other dogs, only her human. She can be a little bossy with the other dogs and would do best as an only dog. While in our care she was diagnosed with an autoimmune blood disease. She was treated with steroids and antibiotics. Her blood tests have come back perfect and she is doing great!. However, it could recur so she needs a family that is attentive to her should it recur so they get her treated immediately. We are looking for a person that will feed only high quality food and feel they will continue her on the raw diet that we believe has restored her to perfect health. She is relatively quiet but does have a sharp bark when she wants your attention so a home might be a better choice for her. Kasia is fully vetted, micro chipped and up to date with her shots, and heartworm negative. If you would like to know more about Kasia, please email us at We are an in home volunteer foster based rescue with full time jobs. Please be patient as will will try to contact you within 48 hours. We do in home visits and cannot manage adoptions outside the Chicago metro area. Thank you !

About Rescue Tails Animal Welfare

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue Tails Animal Welfare is dedicated to rehoming pets from high kill shelters. We choose an animal one at a time and evaluate what issues caused the animal to end up in the shelter and address those issues. Most often we find behavioral issues and/or medical issues . We deal with whatever it is to the best of our ability and then place the pet up for adoption to a responsible pet guardian. It is our goal to prevent the pet from returning to the system again. We work with the pets and carefully match them to their forever homes.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt any animal from Rescue Tails we require a completed and verified adoption application. Once we can review the application, we can set up a meet and greet. We ask that all members of the household including pets are available for us and prospective pet to meet. Providing that goes well, we will set an appointment with you for a home visit. If all goes well we can proceed to the final step of finalizing the adoption.
