Story
Kimora’s a 10yo 12lb Shih Tzu mix. She’s dog and kid friendly. She’s housebroken when kept on a schedule and her people are alert to her signs. She is left in an Xpen with pee pads when foster goes out since she is blind. She is used to a fenced in yard which makes it easier since she is blind. She likes cuddling next to her people on the sofa and loves getting pets especially enjoys getting her head and ears rubbed. She will follow her person around the house then other times she will go off on her own, climb up soft steps onto the sofa, curl up and sleep. She will bark if she wants to get down. Kimora MUST have people who understand caring for a blind dog. If your home DOES NOT fit this please DO NOT put an application in. We will not call anyone not a fit. Also, we will be concentrating on local to foster applications 1st since home checks and meets with all humans and animals in home is needed at meet. Our fosters are all volunteers so aren’t always able to travel too far. Kimora is almost completely blind. She does see some light and reacts if you put your hand towards her face.
