Missy's Story...
Ms. Missy, or Cosita as her friends at the Animal Urgent and Critical Care Center have nicknamed her, came to NBS Animal Rescue from our very good friends at 4 Paws 1 Heart.

Missy was hit by a car and suffered some extreme injuries including a poptused right eyeball (her eye came out of the socket), a broken mandible (lower jaw), and rear leg/hip injuries just to name a few. 4 Paws 1 Heart graciously paid for Missy's veterinary care and surgery to remove her eye, wire her bottom jaw together, and take care of her physical wounds. Gina lovingly took this sweet baby home with her to nurse her back to health, give her around the clock pain medicine, antibiotics, and love. Missy sends her love to Gina for believing in her and giving her a second chance at life. ♥

When Missy was well enough and finished with her medications, NBS Animal Rescue contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart's Gina and volunteered to carry on this sweet little girls care as we search for a fur-ever home for her. Estimated at 3yrs old, Missy is now living in one of our awesome foster homes and has blossomed into quite the happy and energetic little lady! She is potty trained and waltzes right outside into the fenced yard to do her business, she enjoys the company of other gentle dogs who occasionally want to enjoy a quick romp with a toy, and she LOVES to snuggle on your lap or bask on the couch in the sunshine. As one can imagine from her injuries, Missy is still a bit sore and getting used to her lack of vision on her right side. We would like to send a HUGE bark out to our amazing friends at Bingo Pet Salon who were so gentle and patient as they groomed this little sweetheart. We appreciate them taking their time, making her comfortable, and knowing when to stop before she became stressed. We ♥ you Bingo!

While Missy still has a few weeks of recovery to go before the wire in her jaw is removed and her spay surgery is completed, she's ready to start looking for her fur-ever family now. If you think you or someone you know might be the perfect quiet and loving home for Missy - please share Missy's picture with them and ask them to visit our website at to fill out an online adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy, a Troy Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Troy, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Troy breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
