GARRETT – I’VE CROSSED THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:59 am by Administrator

Garrett 1.JPG

Here I am, the Featured Fluff of the Week, AGAIN.  I was featured a while back, BUT FOR SOME REASON I AM STILL HERE!!!!  I thought for SURE I would have been adopted by now!!!  My foster mom says that I am a great guy who deserves a loving home, so PLEASE consider bringing me into your family. 
 

This is my write-up on Petfinder which was written just a couple of weeks ago.  Check out the site for even more pictures of me.
 
My name is Garret and I am a 9-10 year old Lhasa Apso/Poodle mix.  I am one very lucky little guy since the wonderful folks at Lone Star found me.  I had a rough beginning, but you should see me now!!!  I was found as a stray and taken to the local animal shelter.  I was quite the mess when the volunteers at Lone Star rescued me.  I had very long hair that was dirty and matted and I desperately needed a bath.  Once I got a bath, a haircut, medical care, and lots of love from my foster family, I came out of my shell.  I am now a happy, handsome and healthy boy and I am ready to find my forever home.  I know that I am a little older, but that shouldn’t matter as I am a spunky, fun-loving dog who is ready for his forever home.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my foster family and my foster siblings very much, but I think I deserve to have a real forever family to call my own.
 
I have REALLY long legs and my foster mom calls me My Little Pony because of it.  She laughs at me because when I run I’m kind of clumsy and I tend to trip over myself a bit.  I get SOOOO excited when I run and play.  I particularly like to play fetch.  So it’s important that in my new home there is someone who will play with me and hopefully take walks with me.  Going on walks is one of my favorite things to do and I do quite well on a leash.  My long legs can go a great distance!!  My ideal home would be one with older children to play with me and maybe another doggie playmate. 


My foster mom also calls me My Little Pony because when we are on the couch I love to nuzzle her neck just like horses do.  I am really a lovebug at heart and love to cuddle and get pets.   I am a little shy at first, but once I get to know you I will be your best friend.  I’m also learning that being a lap dog is great!!  I am housebroken, I love to be around other dogs, and just love to get attention from my foster mom and the family. 
 
If you think that I would fit into your family, please contact my foster mom at arizonatzu@yahoo.com.  She will tell you all about me.  I promise that I will love you and be your forever friend if you give me a chance.

JUNE BUG – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:40 pm by Administrator

June Bug  after.JPG

Hello!!  My name is June Bug and I am one lucky little lady.  I am a beige and white Shih Tzu mix and am about 1 year old.  I was found as a stray in June of 2007 (that’s one of the reasons my name is June Bug) and I had no hair when I came into foster care.  I have a serious skin condition and when I was found I was at my worst.  Luckily, the WONDERFUL Lone Star volunteers have been helping me and you can see by my picture that I now have HAIR and……………………I’m as cute as a bug!!!  That’s the second reason my name is June Bug!!!


 Here’s what I looked like when I came to Lone Star.  Don’t I look GREAT now!!! June Bug before.jpg My hair is a bit sparse and fuzzy now, but it is growing out and soon, I hope, I will have long hair!!  It turns out that I have a skin condition due to allergies that is very severe and it is causing me to lose my hair and break out in a rash.  My foster mom and the other volunteers have tried lots of things to help me and they have finally found something that has lessened my outbreaks.  The problem is that the medication is expensive.  With regular soothing baths and the medication, my life is fairly normal and I am a VERY happy-go-lucky little lady.
 

 Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I am a very sweet girl who has lots of years of love to give.  My favorite thing would be to find a forever family with a lot of laps for me to lounge in.  I love to cuddle and get pets while I am curled up in my foster mom’s lap!  I don’t take up much room as I only weigh 7 pounds.  I also am very good with other dogs and I love to play with my foster brothers and sisters.  BUT, if one of them gets my favorite squeaky ball – watch out!  I will get it back and squeak that ball and carry it all day long!!!  It is definitely my favorite toy and it’s right next to me in my picture.   

I don’t bark very much, but when I do you know it is me because my bark is quite high pitched.  My foster mom says that when I bark her toes curl.  I don’t really know what that means, but she never gets mad at me, so I guess my bark is just fine!!  Matter of fact, she thinks it is so funny that she eggs me on sometimes so I can sing for her friends! I am also learning house-breaking and my foster mom says that I am just about there.
I am truly a special little fluff who needs a forever family who will love me, take care of me, and understand my special needs.  I will need someone who is willing to take care of me medically for the rest of my life. The medicine that I am on needs to be given daily and I will need frequent baths to soothe my skin.  Also, the medicine that I am on now may not work in the future.  My forever family needs to understand that I will also need frequent veterinarian visits.  That’s a lot to ask for in a family, but I will tell you now that I am worth it.  I promise to love you in return and sit on your lap as long as you want me to.

If you think that I could fit into your life, please contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net.  She will tell you all about me.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page for even more information.  My foster mom says that it will be hard to let me go, but she knows the best thing for me is my own forever family.

ALLESANDRO – I Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

Posted in Fluff of the Week at 7:40 pm by Administrator

Allesandro.jpg

Ciao!  (That’s hello in Italian, just in case you didn’t know).  My name is Allesandro and I am a 3 year old, 16 pound, Lhasa Apso with a very Italian name!!!   I am a shy and quiet young lad, but once I get to know you I am very friendly, sweet, and happy!!!

I enjoy my foster brothers and sisters and I get along with them well.  I play a little with them outside, but if it’s nice out you can find me basking in the sunlight on the grass or the patio.  My most favorite thing to do is follow my foster mom around the house, yard, wherever.  She talks to me all the time and I love it when she pays attention to me.  I especially like it when she takes me on a walk with her.  I also LOVE to eat and I would eat everything in sight if my foster mom let me.  She gives me apple and carrot slices as treats so I can keep my handsome physique.

I have seizures sometimes, but I take medicine every day to control them so I do not have them very often.  I am also working on house-training and rarely have an accident.  I am getting better and better each day and I’m quite proud of my progress.

I would love to find a forever family of my own with someone to take care of me and love me.  I enjoy living with my foster family, but I know there is a special someone waiting for me.  Please contact my foster mom at myheartisdixie@yahoo.com .  She can tell you lots more about me.  Also, please take a look at my Petfinder page for even more information and pictures.

SILAS – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:20 am by Administrator

 

Silas1.jpg

My name is Silas and I am a very cute black and white Shih Tzu mix boy.  I am about 2 years old and still quite the clumsy puppy!  I love to entertain my foster family with my clumsiness and I hear them say that watching me is great entertainment!  Take a look at the video of me running on my Petfinder site and you’ll see me in all my clumsy-action.  My front paws seem to want to go in a different direction than I do!!
Despite my humorous side, I am a sweet boy who loves to be loved by my foster family.  I’m a bit shy at first, but once I get to know you watch out!!  I love to play with my foster brothers and sisters and I would need to have a home with another young, playful doggy-friend to keep me company.  Give me a toy and watch me destroy it – that’s my motto!!  One thing though, if a loud sound happens near me I startle a bit.  But once the initial fear is over, I am just fine and raring to go, go, go. 
I am working on my potty manners and am doing quite well if I say so myself.  My foster mom says that I am an all around great guy who would be a wonderful addition to a family.  Please consider giving me a forever home. 
You can contact my foster mom at j4lsstlar@yahoo.com .  She’ll give you all the scoop on me!!  Also, please check out my Petfinder page for even more information and some more pictures.
