Story
Full disclosure: "Super is short for Superlative Cutetavious Bestboy III. His surfing buddies gave him the nickname back in the day and it stuck. He hasn't been on a board in years, but he's kept the tousled curls, sweet mellow vibe and sturdy physique. Also, he's stoked! To meet you, to meet your friends, to meet their dogs, to hang, to walk, to take the stairs. Equal parts chill and cheerful, this little dude with a spectacular goatee is ready to go home and spread the love.

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 26, 2024, 10:01 pm
