TARIK – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Hello!  My name is Tarik and I am a 5 month old Shih Tzu baby.  My foster Mom said that I am the “runt of the litter”.  I think that must mean something special because she gave me special attention when I first came into foster care.  My foster Mom had to supplement feed me for a few weeks as my brothers and sisters wouldn’t let me eat often enough.  I was very tiny, but I showed them!  With all that special care and my own special food I have gotten bigger and stronger!  I’m still a bit smaller than my brothers, but I am about the same size as my sisters.
 

I am one sweet and loving guy.  I love to sit in my foster Mom’s lap and give her lots of big sloppy kisses.  I also love to play with my foster brothers and sisters, but I am particularly fond of my brother Darius.  We have a great time together.  Mom says that when I find my forever home I will need a young doggie playmate.  Maybe you might consider adopting one of my brothers or sisters along with me! 
 

My foster mom is trying to teach me a trick.  She calls it a “High Five”.  I think she thinks I can learn this because when I play I bat my paws in a very cute way and it reminds her of a high five.
 

My coloring is quite unique if I say so myself.  I have black and red hair which gives my coat a mahogany coloring.  It is quite striking.  I also have a small white blaze on my chin and chest.
 

I am doing well with house training, but remember, I am still a puppy.  I am also crate trained and will sleep in my little crate at night. 
 

If you would like any more information about me, please contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net.  Also, check out my really cute pictures and write-up on my Petfinder page!

DARIUS – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Howdy!  My name is Darius and I am a 5 month old, black and tan Shih Tzu boy.  I am one of a litter of six and one of my siblings has already been adopted, so now there are six of us.  My mom says that my coat is “unique” and that I am quite the dashing youngster.  I weigh about 6 pounds now and am very healthy and happy.
I am also a sweet and loving little boy.  When I see my foster mom in the morning I am the first of the bunch to run and greet her and tell her hello!  When she is sitting in her chair or on the couch, I always come and put my front paws up so that she can pick me up.  I really enjoy her lap!! 

I am also quite playful and enjoy the company of my brothers and sisters and also my older foster siblings.  If there is a grumpy dog that I encounter, I am definitely smart enough to leave him or her alone.  I love my soft little plush toys and enjoy a tug-of-war with one of my siblings now and then.  I also love my back yard.  Basically, I (and my 4 siblings) are just plain happy!  But, we will be happier when we find our forever homes.

I am also crate trained and I sleep in my little crate at night.  I have not had an accident in my crate and I will tell my foster family when I need to go outside.  I’m still learning all the housebreaking rules, and I am a quick learner for a 5 month old!! 

If you think your family is ready for an adorable little Shih Tzu boy, please email my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net.  You can also check out my Petfinder page for even more information.  My foster mom would like me to have a playmate in my forever home, so if you don’t have another young, playful dog in the family, maybe you would like to adopt one of my brothers or sisters along with me.  I am particularly fond of Aziza, and we look just the same!!!

RHETT-I’m now with Toy Breed Rescue in California

 Rhett 12-14-2008-043.jpg

My name is Rhett and I am one of the “Gone with the Wind” dogs rescued from North Carolina last summer.  I am about 7 years old and weigh 10 pounds.  I am most likely a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix.  My foster mom says that makes me a Chi Tzu!!!  I think that’s pretty clever!!!


I came to Lone Star with no hair, mange, very bad skin and worms.  As you can see by my picture, I have lots of black and white hair now!  My skin is in great shape and I feel and look great.  Good nutrition, supplements and the love of my foster family has made me into a very happy boy.


I am very friendly and loving with both people and other dogs.  When I first came to Lone Star, I was very shy.   But, I have learned to love and trust my human friends and have become quite the social butterfly.  In fact, my foster mom says that I am a little lover.  She thinks that I would love to have a forever home where I could be King, or at least Prince, of the castle.  I think she’s right!!


I am healthy and the only lasting problem from my past life is that I have a heart murmur.  Currently, that’s not a problem for me at all.  I can still love you and be your forever friend.
If you think I could fit into your life, please look at my Petfinder page.  Also, email my foster mom at adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com for even more information on me.

BONNIE BLUE-I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Bonnie Blue 9-29-2008-022.jpg

Hello out there!!  My name is Bonnie and I am one tiny little Shih Tzu lady!  I am about 5-6 years old and I am one of the “Hairless North Carolina Shih Tzus” taken from a horrible living situation.  I am now living the high life in my foster home and guess what?  I found out that I love to wear little t-shirts and dresses!  They keep me warm because I have very little hair, and my little clothes are oh-so stylish too! 
 

I am tiny at about 7 pounds or so.  I came to my foster home at 5 pounds and I put on weight fast – so fast that I had to go on a diet!  Now isn’t that just the silliest thing?  I am definitely getting lots of love, good food, and supplements and am now quite the healthy little gal.
 

Even without hair, my foster mom says that I am adorable.  I am also very sweet and loving when I get to know you.  I’m a bit shy at first, but when I find out that you have a lap to sit in, I warm up to you right away.
 

If you think I might fit into your home, please contact my foster mom at adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com.  She will tell you all about me.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page.  I need to be loved and I need to be spoiled and every lady needs a wardrobe!  Can you give me all those things?

MONKEY – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:46 am by Volunteers

Monkey Dec 2009.jpgMy name is Monkey and I am one very sweet and social little Shih Tzu boy.  I am about 3 years old, weigh 14 pounds, and I have a beautiful shiny black coat.  I was names Monkey because of my black hair, my tiny little nose and my inquisitive little look.  Not only am I a sweet boy, but I am a very, very lucky boy.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
 
The volunteers at Lone Star found me at one of the local animal shelters.  I had a previous back injury that left me paralyzed in my back legs and the animal shelter folks knew that I would be hard to adopt.  That’s when Lone Star stepped in and took me under their wing.  They found the resources to fund surgery for me and now I CAN WALK!!!    Even the veterinarians who did the surgery were surprised at how well I have done.  I walk with a little limp, but that’s OK by me.  My life is so much better now!!! 
 

I am very sweet, easy-going and friendly.  I love people and I also love to play with all my foster brothers and sisters.  “Play” would be my middle name.  It’s amazing how much energy I have now that I can use my back legs!  I also love to go on walks, and the walks help me get stronger and stronger. 
 

I would love to find a forever home that would love me, play with me, and take me for long walks.  Oh, and I forgot about the “pamper me” part.  That would really be great!  I’ve been through a lot and I think I really deserve a special family to call my own.  Please let that be you.
 

If you would like to hear more about me, check out my Petfinder page.  Also, please email my foster mom at adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com.  I KNOW she will tell you what a special little guy I am.
