My story

Posted 5/2/2022. Updated 5/21/22. - BONDED PAIR LUCY and THEO
PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE CONTACTING US. Lucy and her companion Theo (also a Shih-Tzu) came to the nest from a local animal shelter. They were dropped off by an individual who's family member and owner of the two pups, has been suffering from dementia and could no longer care for the dogs. Lucy and Theo spent the last two years inside due to their owner's illness. When they arrived at the shelter, one could not see the pups under their overgrown and matted hair. Their eyes were gunky and their gate wobbly from lack of exercise. After two weeks of Nest care both Lucy and Theo started to really blossom and they are now spunky happy little pups and ready for their new forever home. Lucy and Theo are bonded and can not be separated. They are allegedly 10 years old but they could be younger. They are in excellent shape including their teeth. One of Lucy's eyes is somewhat vision impaired. We think it might have become infected in the past due to lack of grooming and was not tended to accordingly. They are lively and always ready for an adventure. They also like to play with each other now and then. They both LOVE to be with their person, especially Theo, he likes to follow his human EVERYWHERE. We think that the two were fed table food because it took them a while to accept dog food. They are now eating their dog food with great gusto. :) Lucy especially likes to bag at the table by making the cutest howling sound...nono, Lucy. ;) Both pups are very very sweet. They love to curl up next to you on the couch when it is movie time. Lucy likes to sleep at the feet of your bed at night. Both pups can be very independent and are not clingy. They are just a joy to be around. Lucy and Theo get along very well with other dogs and mind their own business. Theo has shown interest in playing with other pups. Ideally we are looking for a home with fairly active people who can provide plenty of walking exercise. While they are fine with other dogs we really don't want them (or the other pup) to compete for attention. They have been through a long time of neglect...We also would like a home with a securely fenced in yard (sorry a patio does not count as yard, no invisible fence please) so they can roam around in it at their little heart's content (Lucy LOVES to venture out in the yard and sniff every blade and flower...). We think that they were both house broken at some point but one has to be prepared for accidents as they were used to going in the house. Lucy sleeps a lot but when there is action, she wants to be part of it. Both pups are super cute, Lucy weighs only 9 lbs., Theo 12lbs. We prefer a home without children under 14. Both dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations including Rabies, they have been tested for heartworm and they are on heartworm/flea/tick prevention. If you are interested in Lucy and Theo please fill out an adoption application on our web site inthenest.net (an application must be filled out prior to setting up a meet and greet). We prefer a home in or close to home but we don't exclude other applicants. Lucy's adoption fee is $150, Theo's adoption fee is $150 also. They must stay together.
