Hello!!  My name is Chowder and what a cute little guy I am!  I am a 1 year old gray and white Shih Tzu with the cutest face you have ever seen!  Not only am I cute, but I am just a great little guy and I am ready for my lifetime home.  Let me tell you a bit about myself.

I came to Lone Star from one of the local animal shelters.  I had hair loss due to fleas, but with special food and supplements, my hair is now thick and healthy and I look GREAT!  I can honestly say that I am very healthy and very happy!

I love, love, love people and will give you lots of kisses if you let me.  I particularly like laps and will try to sit on your lap any chance I get.  If you are not petting me or giving me enough attention, I will give you gentle head-bumps until you do!  Basically, I love to be cuddled and loved.

I get along well with my foster brothers and sisters and since I am a youngster, I would like my forever home to have another young dog in it so that we can play together.  That would be perfect!!  I also LOVE to go on walks so that I can explore my surroundings and learn new things.  The walks also help me release some of my youthful energy!!

If you would like a young, playful dog for your family, please think of me!  I promise that you won’t be disappointed!  Please contact sherry352@sbcglobal.net for more information.  And, you can also check out my Petfinder page!

Greetings!!  My name is Gianna and I am a 6-8 year old, 13 pound, Shih Tzu gal.  I am so very happy to be a rescued dog at Lone Star!  My life before being rescued was a tough one.  Now I am looking forward to the day when I will find the good life with my forever family.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

Before I was rescued, I was what they call a breeder’s dog.  I had many litters of puppies for the breeder and probably due to my age I was no longer needed anymore.  That’s when the breeder got rid of me and Lone Star found me.  I was in pretty bad shape.  I was anemic, dehydrated, and my coat was in very bad condition.  My tummy was swollen and since I had just had a litter of puppies, I still had some milk.  My new found Lone Star friends started me on good quality food, some supplements and lots of fluids so I could get better.  AND, I have gotten better and better each day!!!

There is a downside to all this however.  You see, I had to be put on a diet also.  I LOVE my food and I have not been very happy with the fact that my foster mom is not giving me all the food I want!  I know it is for the best, but I’m still not happy about it!!!  Because I had all those puppies, my back is swayed a little and the extra weight on me is not good for that.  Also, I had to have surgery to correct a broken leg that didn’t heal correctly.  Extra weight on that leg is also not a good thing.  I have a little limp and need to take walks daily so that my leg will strengthen.  The limp doesn’t bother me though and I am a happy little girl.  Mom says that walking will also help me control my weight!

I love to be held and sit in any lap I can find that’s empty.  Lots of pets are a good thing and I really appreciate all that I get.  Being a breeder’s dog meant that I was not given much loving in the past.  I am very quiet and reserved and am quite happy sitting on my little bed watching what is happening around me.  But if there is a lap available – I’m there!!!  I will also give you lots of kisses in return for lots of loving!!

I’m OK with the other dogs here, but I prefer to be left alone.  Some of the younger dogs tend to bump into me when they are playing and I’m not too happy about that.  So, I guess my ideal lifetime home would be a quiet one, with no small children.  I’m really good with ALL people, but young children tend to be a bit rambunctious for me.

If you think that I could be a part of your family, please contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net.  She will tell you what a special gal I am.  I had a hard life and I really feel that I am ready for the good life.  Also, please look at my Petfinder pager for even more information about me.  I promise to make you happy!!!

Hello again!!  I am still here waiting for my lifetime home.  My foster mom tells me that I am just the sweetest little dog ever!  And,  even though I am an older dog, I am still very alert and active.  I would love to go on walks, car rides, or whatever my new forever family would want.  I am healthy and loving and waiting for YOU!!!  

My original story is after my picture.  Please read about me and contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net if you think I could be a part of your family!!!  I promise I won’t disappoint you!

Brenda new.JPG

Hello!  My name is Brenda and what a sweet girl I am!  I’m a 10 year old Lhasa Apso, but I really don’t act my age.  My foster mom says that I am very nice, gentle, have good manners, and I am quite the lover!  What more could you ask for?  

I was left alone in my backyard after my first mom died.  The folks at LoneStar then took me in and are taking wonderful care of me.  I know my foster family loves me, but I would sure LOVE to find my very own forever family.  

I am a long legged, slender gal at 15 pounds and could stand to gain a pound or two.  I have pretty good metabolism, though, and may just stay slim for awhile.  I do have a skin condition that is probably caused by allergies.  Because of that my hair is a bit sparse.  My foster mom gives me a soothing bath now and then and that makes my skin feel SOOOOOOO good!   I also had surgery for cherry eye which is a very common problem in dogs like me.  That has been corrected and I am good to go!! 

I’m OK with my foster brothers and sisters, but I actually prefer to be by myself.  I do play with some of my foster siblings a little, but I don’t go out of my way to find a playmate.  Sometimes I get a little annoyed with the younger, more active dogs.  I guess I’m just a quiet, laid-back little lady who prefers a pillow to a pillow fight!! 

If you think I might fit into your family, please contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net or sherry@pawpawpatch.net. I know she will tell you what a wonderful gal I am.  You can also look at my Petfinder page for even more information about me.  Please give me a chance in your home.  I really would love to be loved.

My name is Blitzen and you have read about me here before.  I have a new foster family and am learning lots of new things.  I am now much calmer than I was and, most importantly I AM NOW HOUSETRAINED!!!  Cool, huh? 

Please check out my Petfinder page for more information.  You can also learn more about me by emailing sherry352@sbcglobal.net.  with any questions you might have.  I could be the PERFECT dog for your family!! 

Here’s my picture and my write-up from August, 2008.  I’m still a great little guy patiently waiting for my lifetime home!

Blitzen 20080719.JPG

Hello!!  I am Blitzen and I am a 2 year old, 12 pound, Lhasa Apso boy.   My hair is brown and white and I have a boyish cut right now although my hair looks great when it is longer.

I am a fun little guy who loves to play, play, play.  In fact, it would be lots of fun to have a doggie brother or sister to play with in my forever home.  If there isn’t another dog for me, I will need my forever family to play with me, take good care of me, and just love, love, love me!!

One of my favorite things is to be with people.  I am a happy-go-lucky little guy and my foster mom says that I am super-sweet!  I will give everyone big slobbery kisses if they let me!!  I am really good riding in a car and am also good walking on a leash.  I LOVE to go on walks!!  I’m not so good yet at potty training and I will need someone to help me get better at that.  The problem is that there is just so much going on around me that I get easily side-tracked and forget what I am supposed to do!!  I KNOW that I will get better though, but I need someone who is willing to work with me. 

I am a smart little boy and I will sit and stay on command, especially if there is a treat involved!  I do love my treats!  And I will go in my crate when I have to, although I will bark for a while to let you know that I’m not happy about it!! 

I’ve been in foster care since Christmas (hence the name Blitzen) and I’m ready to find my forever home.  Do you think I could fit into your family?  I promise I’ll do my best to please you!  Please contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net for more information about me.  She will be sure to tell you that I am a great dog just waiting for a great family to love.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page for even more information about me.I am altered, up to date on all shots and heartworm negative.

I thought you would like to know that I am on complete “crate rest”.  My veterinarian thinks that I tore my ACL when I jumped off the couch last week.  SOOOO, I need to be very quiet and not move very much so that I can heal.  Hopefully, if all goes as planned, I will not need any surgery.  It’s hard to be that still, but I am trying!!
