My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Cuteness galore!  Mochi Mae is a super friendly, happy, and sweet little girl. Her fun loving spirit lights up the room and makes us all smile. She loves to be with people, and especially enjoys cuddling in a cozy lap, playing with toys, and romping in the yard. Mochi Mae also loves to play with other dogs, and does so in such a beautiful, gentle, and fun way. All the other dogs absolute love Mochi Mae.
          Mochi Mae is a Shih Tzu, about 2 years 1/2 old and 11 pounds. There is only one reason she has yet to be adopted. When she arrived, Mochi Mae was evaluated by a neurologist, who diagnosed prior trauma to her lower back and pelvis. She was healed, but the injury left her urinary incontinent and partially fecal incontinent. She also cannot move or feel her tail, (which is why it is not wagging in the video.) She is not in any pain now, and can walk, run, and jump without any difficulty. Mochi Mae has been with us for over 2 yearS and her condition has not changed, and probably will not improve. She is otherwise strong and healthy.
          With the right person, there is no reason Mochi Mae cannot live a long and happy life. This person should have a big heart, and be willing to manage her issues,
(frequent washing, diaper at times, not disturbed by small accidents). Mochi Mae is such a special, wonderful girl who oozes sweetness and love, that it will be worth going the extra mile for her. If you believe you are that person, please put in an application today. Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see amazing Mochi Mae as she enjoys her people time and playing with some of her pals,oth boys have been adopted. We will continue to love and care for this little beauty, as we wait for the right person to step up.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We have an adoption contract that must be completed and approved. We require vet and personal references as well home checks. Our normal response time is approximately 7 to 10 working days. Our Adoption Committee works very hard to place our dogs in environments where they will be most likely to succeed. Please understand that we have more applications than we do dogs and that if you do not hear from us within that timeframe, we currently do not have a dog who we feel would match your needs.

Our fee includes neuter or spay, all shots, and snap test for heartworm/erlichia/lyme. We take care of whatever their medical needs might be before they are adopted.


Adoption application
