My name is Blanca and I am a 4 year old, 8 pound, Shih Tzu girl.  I lived my life as a breeder’s dog and have had quite a few litters.  My previous owners moved out of the house and left me to fend for myself in the backyard.  Luckily a Good Samaritan neighbor saw what happened and rescued me.  Now I am living in a wonderful foster home with great foster parents and lots of foster brothers and sisters.  I am slowly but surely learning that life is truly good!

I am very sweet and loving and LOVE to give you big wet kisses.  I cuddle with my foster mom every chance I get, and I follow her all over the house.  I’m a bit wary of men right now and my foster mom thinks that I might have been treated badly by a man.  I am slowly learning that the men in my new foster family won’t hurt me and that they love me too.  But it’s taking me a little while to fully trust them.  I am definitely improving day by day!  I have finally found the good life and I want to keep it that way!!

I love to play with my foster siblings and we have a great time.  My foster mom says that I have fit into the household routine very nicely.  And do you know what mom says the best thing is?  I am fully house-trained!!!  I don’t bark that much and I also am crate trained. 

I am happy, healthy and playful.  I would love to find my “furever” home.  My ideal home would be as an only dog, or maybe one other small dog to play with.  I am still a bit timid, so large dogs and young children scare me.  Cats are OK, I tend to just ignore them!!

If you think I might fit into your family, please contact my foster mom at myheartisdixie@yahoo.com.  She’ll tell you lots more about me.  Also, I should be on Petfinder soon, and you can learn even more about me!

We are Prince and Flower and we are survivors of Hurricane Rita.  Our owner had to be air-lifted to the hospital right before the storm hit and we were left to fend for ourselves for a few days.  Luckily, we were rescued and taken care of by Lone Star while our owner was hospitalized.  We were eventually reunited with him for a while, but now we are back in foster care because our owner died.  We’ve been through a lot and need to find a forever home where we will feel safe and secure.  We’d like to tell you a little about ourselves.



I am a 5 year old Lhasa Apso boy and I weigh about 16 pounds.  I am very sweet and good-natured.  My favorite thing to do is play.  I love my little toys!!  I will also play with my foster brothers and sisters and even the cat!!!  I particularly like to play with my sister Flower.  She and I are together all the time. I also love to be petted and cuddled.  There’s nothing better than to stop playing and get a cuddle from my foster mom.  I enjoy sitting on her lap and getting lots of attention.  I also like to go for walks and am very good on a leash.  Most importantly, I am housebroken, so you won’t have to worry about me!  I love my crate and consider it my little den and I sleep in there at night without any problems.

My ideal forever home would be one where my sister Flower is with me, but we would be just fine if we were adopted separately.  We both need to feel safe and secure after what we’ve been through.  If you think that I could fit into your family, please contact sunny@lsstlar.org.  She’ll tell you lots more about me.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page.

My name is Flower and I am a 5 year old, 12 pound, Shih Tzu girl.  I am very sweet and gentle, but am a little timid when I first meet new people.  I look to my brother Prince to let me know that everything is OK. Once I get to know you, I will love you.  I have learned that pets and cuddles are a good thing!!  I consider myself to be easy-going and laid-back and I think that I am a pretty neat little lady!! I like to play with my toys and especially enjoy play time with my brother Prince.  I get along well with my other foster brothers and sisters and even like cats!  I am also very good on a leash and enjoy long walks with my foster mom.  I am housebroken and crate-trained.  I sleep in my crate at night and like it so much that I often go in there during the day for my nap.  I also love to sit by the window and watch everything that goes on outside.

Please consider me, and my brother Prince, as a part of your family.  We would love to be loved by you and we promise to give you lots of love in return!  Please contact sunny@lsstlar.org for more information.  Check out my Petfinder page too!
