Gaztzu Was born in 2006. He is around 20 pounds. He is a mix between a Shitzu and an unknown type of terrier.
He came from a group of 35 dogs that were being kept in a one bedroom apartment. For his first couple of years he never left his apartment & he was free to interbreed. Finally the 'owner' realized that her dog situation was out of control & she called in a local rescue. 35 dogs (that all looked almost identical) were to much for just one rescue to handle & so we were asked to take some of the dogs.
The dogs came in in 2007, covered in feces, mats and lice. After several baths & some much needed brushing, they all turned out to be quite adorable! Although they have not had much socialization, they have come around quite nicely. Some of them are still a bit shy at first when meeting new people, but none have shown any tendency to bite. All of them are coming up to us & wagging their tails. They are starved for affection. If you are looking for a nice companion dog, please consider one of these dogs. We would like the rest of their years to be filled with good things!
This great dog is all ready for a new home! The adoption donation of $200.00 pays for this dog's medical care & also contributes to the medical care needed by other dog's that come into our rescue. (some dogs need hundreds of dollars worth of care to make them adoptable) Why purchase a dog for hundreds of dollars (that still needs vaccinations & neutering & microchip) when you can get this darling dog that already has everything and help other dogs at the same time??? Every life is precious! Thank you for your support.
