Story
Praline Royale, a criminally cute Shih Tzu with otherworldly resilience, is a worthy contender for any list of unmissable pleasures. A super oldie but undeniable goodie, she has a strong spirit, is firm on her feet, and sports ears that defy gravity. Most of all, she is ready for all the tenderness a cherished elder deserves. If you have a skosh of space in your heart for this tiny girl, her presence there will make it bigger and stronger.

Story
All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated, and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $800   Biscuit is a 9 week old Shih Tzu mix who is cute enough to nibble! Biscuit, and his sister Scone, came into our rescue as an owner surrender when his former home was no longer able to care for him. We will be looking for separate homes for each puppy. Biscuit has a Shih Tzu coat which will be lighter shedding, but will not be an option for those with true allergies. He will require regular grooming.    Below is a note from Biscuit’s foster.  “Biscuit is a happy and sweet puppy who loves cuddles and kisses. Biscuit is happy to take his cues from his sister as they go about their daily play. He is very loving and is happy to trot around the house until we scoop him up and give him snuggles. Biscuit is a true gentleman, politely resting his face on our laps as we pet him. He loves toys and it is so fun to watch his little legs race after his toys when we throw them. Biscuit is such a cute and handsome little man who is just too adorable for words!   The puppies wake up at 6 AM and spend some time playing as we start our days. They get breakfast around 7 AM and then spend the morning alternating between chasing each other, playing with toys, and snoozing in their pen. After lunch at 1 PM, they take a long afternoon nap before another play session. They have dinner at 7 PM before they get a lot of cuddles in the evening. They go to bed at 9 PM.  The puppies are working on their potty pad training and are very smart as they learn new things. They get along very well with dogs and cats alike. They adore people and know how to work their puppy dog eyes for endless cuddles. Biscuit is just a bundle of love who can’t wait to find his afternoon tea party club!”   Biscuit is only an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. Kids in the home should be over the age of 7.February 29, 2024, 9:54 pm

Caterpillar wiggled over to our rescue after his former home was no longer able to care for him, so we stepped in. Caterpillar will be a smaller dude when he is fully grown, around 10-12 pounds. Caterpillar has a combination coat, so he may require some grooming and may be lighter shedding as an adult.    Below is a note from Caterpillar’s foster.  “Caterpillar is an adorable little snugglebug who can’t wait to find his forever people! He is very playful and loves toys and people equally, whoever is willing to give him more affection. He loves to cuddle with his people, and would happily snuggle in your lap all day as you work (with some breaks for zoomies of course)! Caterpillar is great at mirroring the energy of his people as well! Ready for a day out at the beach? Caterpillar is down and has his towel ready! Looking forward to a movie marathon? Caterpillar is popping the popcorn! He is so sweet and lovely, with the cutest puppy dog eyes. Caterpillar starts his day around 8:30 AM with breakfast and a potty break. He spends his days playing with his foster family, napping in his pen, playing with his toys, and generally being an adorable little puppy. Caterpillar is working on his potty pad training so he gets several chances to go potty throughout the day. He has a snack mid-day and then has dinner around 5 PM in his pen. In the evening, he plays some more with my dog before heading to bed in his pen. Caterpillar gets along with dogs of all sizes and would benefit from continued canine socialization. He loves treats and is very smart, so he will be quite fun to work on training with. He loves people, especially when they give him pets and snuggles. Caterpillar can’t wait to blossom in his forever home and meet you!”   Caterpillar is an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. Kids in the home should be over the age of 6February 29, 2024, 9:54 pm
