WOW!!!  How did a Tibetan Terrier/Havanese mix end up in a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso Rescue?  I’ll tell you how and am I ever glad that I am here!!  My name is Magnolia.  One of our volunteers was taking a leisurely walk when she saw me.  I’m so glad she did, because I led her to where my FOUR PUPPIES were.  She just knew when she saw me that I was a Momma dog and instead of picking just me up, she followed me so that she could help us all.  I knew when I saw her that she was special.  She took us to another volunteer with Lone Star to help raise us, and now we all have a new chance on life.  We are looking for our forever homes. 





Let me tell you a little about myself.  I am about 2 years old and I am a very good girl.  My foster mom said that I was a good mother to my four pups.  There names are Apex, Fluke, Pockie, and Dot.  There will be stories in this column about them soon.  We all have Petfinder pages, so if you are interested in any of us, please check us out. 




The volunteers at Lone Star aren’t exactly sure what kind of a dog I am, but their best guess is that I am a Tibetan Terrier/Havanese mix.  I have a black and gray coat and I think I am a very pretty girl.  I am also very sweet and loving to both humans and other dogs.  I know that I would make you very happy.





Please consider adopting me so that I can have my very own forever home.  You can contact my foster mom at adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com and you can also look at my Petfinder page.  I promise that I won’t disappoint you.

Greetings!  We are Charles and Brent and we would like to tell you a little about ourselves.  We were both rescued from North Carolina and are two of the “Hairless NC Shih Tzus”.  We had horrible skin problems, worms, and had lost all of our hair due to extreme neglect.  We were also very shy and scared when we first came into foster care.  We just did not know what was happening to us, but once we figured out that life can be wonderful and what loving care and good medical attention are, we started blossoming.  We are now healthy and happy and we are even starting to grow hair!!!  We now need to find our forever homes.

I am a 6-7 year old Shih Tzu boy and I weigh about 10 pounds or so.  I now have hair and that is SO COOL!!! 

I was very shy when I first came into foster care, but now I am one social little lad.  I am very sweet and loving once I get to know you and my foster mom says that I am a charmer.  I love to get you to pet me and pay attention to me.  It’s fun to be loved!!!  I also love my foster brothers and sisters and will play with them.

Think about adopting me.  Check out my Petfinder page and please contact my foster mom at Adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com  She knows that I deserve to find my forever home.  I sure hope that’s with you!!!

My name is Brent and I am about 5-6 years old and I weigh 11 pounds.  I don’t have very much air – except on my legs!!!  My foster mom says that I have that “cowboy” look as it appears that I am wearing chaps!  I think it looks pretty darn cool and I am quite happy that my hair is starting to grow back (even if it is just on my legs).

I was VERY shy when I first came to Lone Star, but I, like Charles, have developed into a sweet and loving companion.  Please consider me as part of your family.  I would love to find my forever home.

Please look at my Petfinder page and contact my foster mom at Adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com  You won’t be disappointed if you do!!

PICASSO – I’ve Been Adopted

Posted in Fluff of the Week at 10:03 am by Volunteers


My name is Picasso and I am a 4-5 year old Lhas Apso lad.  I have a beautiful brown and white coat and am pretty handsome if I must say so myself!  I found my way to Lone Star and my foster home after I was taken to the SPCA due to an eye injury.  I had to have my eye removed, but I’m OK with that.  I do very well and you would never know that I have this problem.
 I am a little wary of strangers and just need to get to know you a bit and then I’m fine.  My foster mom says that I am a little temperamental.  For example, I like to know when you might want to pick me up.  If you startle me I might have some “Lhasatude”.  But, if you are calm and gentle with me, I’m pretty much OK.  Because of this, it would be better if I were in a forever home that did not have young children.  I prefer the quiet life and tend to watch what’s going on from afar. 

I think that I am getting better and better each day.  I know that if I had my very own forever home and my very own family I would become even better.  I just need someone to give me a chance.  If you are interested, please contact my foster mom at adoptioninquities@yahoogroups.com.  She will tell you that I am definitely worth it.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page.

Woof Woof!!  My name is Cheddar and I am one sweet little Lhasa Apso boy.  My coat is a beautiful golden color – just like Cheddar Cheese!!!  I am two years old and a very, very happy and lucky lad.  When I came into foster care, I had a damaged right eye that had not been taken care of by my previous family.  The wonderful Lone Star volunteers took me to the Veterinarian and I started treatment.  Unfortunately, we found out that my eye was so badly damaged that it had to be removed.  But, that’s OK by me!  I can see just fine and it hasn’t stopped me one bit from enjoying life.

I am a very playful young dog and will play at every opportunity.  I particularly like to play with my foster brothers and sisters, so I really would like a playful young dog in my forever family to keep me company.  Not only am I playful, but I am also very sweet and lovable with my human friends.  I think everyone is my friend and I just love to get attention, pets and tummy rubs.

I think I am just about the most perfect dog for your family.  Please contact my foster mom at Adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com for more information about me.  You can also read about me on my very own Petfinder page.
