Am I cute or what? My name is Terry James and I am a 5 year old beige and white Shih Tzu male looking for his forever home. I weigh about 14 pounds. I have one eye due to an old injury. Unfortunately, I have recently become blind in that eye. The veterinarian told my foster mom that my retina has separated from the back of my eye and caused total blindness. I am adjusting to this slowly and I now need lots of love and attention from the volunteers at Lone Star to help me conquer this hurdle. I know I can do it and my foster mom tells me that once I know the lay of the land and my daily routine, I will be fine. I want to be with my foster mom and the other volunteers now more than I ever did before as I continue to learn.
I am not the perfect dog, and now that I am blind it would be best if I were the only dog in my forever home so that I can get all the pets and cuddles that I want!! I would probably do fine in a home with another dog that is very quiet and laid back that would not mind my bumping into him occasionally.
My favorite thing to do is to be with my foster mom and the family. I get along with my foster brothers and sisters as long as they leave me alone – I don’t pay very much attention to them normally. My foster mom says there should be no children in my forever house. Because I am now totally blind, children might scare me as I need a quiet, stable environment. And, although I now mind my manners pretty well, I have a history of being naughty. I am pretty good now, though, honestly! I also LOVE to get treats and I especially like to get little bits of whatever my foster mom happens to be eating!! I would love a lap of my own to cuddle in. Please give me a chance! I have gone through months of rehabilitation to become the better mannered little dog I am now.
If you are looking for an extra special little guy in your life, please contact my foster mom at email@example.com. I know she has all the goods on me that she would be happy to tell you about. Also, please look at my Petfinder page and you will see more pictures of me.
I am altered, up to date on all my shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.
Greetings!! My name is Wilma and I am a 4-5 year old, 12 pound, black and white Shih Tzu girl. My foster mom calls me a classic black and white tzu who has a very cute little face! I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself as I am a very special girl who hopes to be lucky enough to find a special forever family to love me.
Basically I am VERY shy. I was a puppy mill dog and was never socialized during my time there. Because of that I now tend to find a hiding place where I feel safe and secure and I stay there until I’m sure all is well. I sometimes find some very silly and possibly dangerous places to hide, so my new family needs to understand that I need to be safe and not have access to anything that might hurt me.
I am learning to trust and am starting to like people and other dogs, but it is a slow process. When I first meet someone I am a bit apprehensive and I might nip out of fear, but once I know you are OK and here to help me I become comfortable. Trust is the whole issue here and I’m starting to learn that trust is a good thing. I am even starting to trust my foster brother and sister doggies at Deogi, our day care center. I have figured out that it is fun to play with them, but again that took a little time because of that trust thing. I never had toys before and now I’m learning how to play with those too! Every day is a new adventure for me.
I now trust and love my foster mom and will sit on her lap and get pets and loving from her. She says that I am a diamond in the rough, just waiting for someone who will help me to be the best little dog ever. All I want to be is loved, but I have to learn what that’s all about. For now it would be best that I go to a forever home that does not have children.
I have no health problems and am learning house breaking. I do love to eat and I will do a little jumping dance when I hear my food being prepared. Mom laughs when I do this, but it is just my way of saying “Feed me, I’m hungry!!”
I would love to have my own forever family. I need someone to help me become the great little dog I know I am capable of being. I just need someone who has the patience to help me. Trust me, I’m worth the effort.
Please contact my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org , she’ll make sure you know what a great dog I am. Also, please look at my Petfinder page for even more information.

My name is Cricket and I am the cutest, most precious Shih Tzu lady you will ever meet. I am about 9 years old, but I am a young nine. I don’t show my age at all and will run and play with my foster mom every chance I get. I particularly like to play fetch and when I see that my mom is getting the ball I get VERY excited!! In fact, I’m SO excited that I start running to catch the ball even before Mom throws it!!! She laughs at me when I do this, but I want to make certain I get that ball!! I also get along well with my foster brothers and sisters and will play with them at times. Cats are OK with me too.
I’m a little overweight and am on a diet to lose a couple of pounds. I am doing well with this and am starting to see a little weight loss. Since I’m such an active gal, all the exercise I get will burn those calories away!
I love chewy toys, particularly rawhide bones or ropes. I tend to REALLY chew them, so my foster mom makes sure that she gets me durable bones and toys so they last a bit longer. I sleep in my doggie bed right next to my parent’s bed. If one of my foster siblings gets up to go outside, I always get up with them to see what they are up to. I’m a bit of a light sleeper and I want to know what’s going on at all times. I do go back to sleep in my bed once all the excitement is over.
I have very good manners. I’m not a fussy eater and am very gentle when treats are given to me. I love to go on long walks and I do quite well on a leash. I don’t particularly like to be crated or restrained in my car seatbelt, but I know it’s for the best.
If you think that I could fit into your family, please contact my foster mom at email@example.com . She will tell you lots about me. And, please check out my Petfinder page for even more information. I am altered, up-to-date on all my shots and am heartworm negative.
Are you looking for a mature gentleman? One who is well-mannered, gentle and loving? I may be the one for you!!! My name is Claude and I am a 10 year old Lhasa Apso who weighs about 18 pounds. I know I am older than some of my foster brothers and sisters, but I feel that I deserve to live the rest of my life in my very own forever home. Let me tell you a bit about myself, so you know how special I am.
Although I see okay, I do need to have my foster mom put eye drops in my eyes daily for dry eye. I also have part of one of my ears missing. My foster mom thinks that I may have been in either an accident or was attacked as I have some other scarring besides my missing ear. I am definitely not a fighter so mom thinks that I may have been around the wrong dog at the wrong time. I am actually very loving and gentle. I sometimes like to romp and play with my foster brothers and sisters but I like to pick the time to play. My specific duty at the house is to greet all the new dogs and make them feel welcome.
I also don’t have any front teeth, so when it comes to eating I get to eat from a regular dinner plate rather than a dog bowl. That makes me feel very special. I know when my foster mom is in the kitchen preparing all of our meals and I am ready and waiting at the gate to come in. I am very patient and wait my turn for dinner. Once I have finished my meal, I patiently wait for someone to let me back into the living area to be with all my doggie friends. I never bark and make a ruckus to go back. Mom says that I am a very good boy.
I am definitely a lap dog or maybe I could be called a “foot dog” as I will sit by your feet for as long as you let me. I am very devoted to my foster mom and the family and I love to be wherever they are.
I am doing very well with my house training. I wear a belly-band as I used to have accidents in the house. Whenever my foster family takes me outside I do my business and come right back in. If I am let out often enough, I have no accidents.
Please consider me as the older man in your life. I promise I will be a faithful and loving companion. Email my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. And, please check out my Petfinder page.
