Lobo Planter 10 23 09 

Hello!!!  My name is Lobo and, as you can see from by picture, I am a very handsome little 4 year old Shih Tzu boy.  I weigh about 16 pounds or so.  I am one sweet guy AND I am also one very lucky guy.  My life before living in my “way cool Arizona foster home” with my “way cool foster Mom and Dad” was not so great.  I spent the first 4 years of my life living in a puppy mill before I was rescued by the wonderful volunteers at Lone Star.  I was a little shy and fearful when I first came into foster care, but I have blossomed into a social, loving and very sweet boy.

My foster Mom says that I am even cuter than my picture and that I look like and even act like a little angel. She tells me that I am very easy to have around the house.  Actually, I am so grateful to have been rescued that I have a little smile on my face pretty much all the time.  I love getting pets from any one and will rub against your leg when I want attention.  I also love playing with my foster brothers and sisters and would love to be in a forever home that has a playful dog that could be my friend.  I am house trained too.

If you think that I might be the perfect dog for your family, please take a look at my Petfinder page.  Also, my foster Mom Lisa would be happy to tell you all about me.  You can email her at azdoglover713@yahoo.com.  I now know what it’s like to live in a REAL home with a REAL family.  I REALLY would like my own special forever home and family.  Please think about me!!  I promise to make you happy!!

My name is Xandie and I am one cute little girl!  I am a 12 pound, 4 year old black and white Shih Tzu who has been through a lot in my short life.  When I first got to Lone Star I was very fearful of everyone and everything.  You see, I was abused in my first home and it has taken me a long time to learn to trust again.  I am getting better and better each day and I so appreciate my foster family for helping me through this difficult time.  I have now gotten to the point where I will let my foster mom pick me up for pets and loving.  I learned that it’s a pretty nice thing to be in her lap getting lots of love!!  Because of my history, it would be best if my forever home had children 16 years of age or older.  Also, my new family will need to understand that it might take a bit for me to get comfortable with them.  I promise though, it would be worth it!  I deserve my very own forever home!

I would love to have another playful dog in the house to keep me company.  I try to get my foster brother to play with me, but he wants nothing to do with me.  I can’t understand that!!!  My foster mom takes me on walks and I love that.  And, I love to be with you when ever you take a car ride.  That’s VERY much fun for me.  I just want to be with you and be loved by you.  I especially want to be close when there is a thunderstorm!!!

I am housetrained and know how to use the doggie door.  You see, I’m just about the perfect little dog for your family.  I would love to meet you and spend the rest of my life with you.  Please contact my foster mom at luvmyflick@gmail.com .  She will be happy to tell you all about me.  Also, I have my very own Petfinder page that you can look at.  Think about me when you are looking to adopt.  I won’t disappoint you!!!

PADDY PAWS – I’ve Been Adopted!!

Paddy Paws 

What a sweet little older lady I am!!  My name is Paddy Paws and I will be 10 years young on December 1, 2009.  I am a Shih Tzu and I would love to find my forever home to live out my senior years.  My first family had to give me up because they were moving and could not take me with them.  I am very grateful that the wonderful volunteers at Lone Star have taken me in.  Now, I need to convince YOU that I would make the perfect addition to your family.


I am very sweet and cuddly and I love, love, love to be held just like a baby.  That means that you can give me lots of belly rubs and I do love my belly rubbed!!  I will stay for them as long as you are willing to pet me.  I get along well with my foster brothers and sister and I especially love playing with one of them.  I also enjoy the company of children as long as they respect my senior status.  My favorite toys are soft and squeaky.  I am also housebroken and I even know how to use a doggie door!  My favorite spot to sleep would be in bed with you, but I also am content in my little bed at the side of your bed. 


My foster mom calls me a chow hound.  She learned pretty quickly that she needs to watch me at dinner time.  I will chow down my bowl of food in no time flat, then, of course, I need to check out which one of my foster siblings has left anything in their bowl!  I’m right there to gobble it up!!!


If you think I might be the perfect senior lady for you, please contact my foster mom at luvmyflick@gmail.com.  She would be more than happy to tell you all about me.  You can also check out my very own Petfinder page for even more information.  It would make me so happy to find my forever home!!!
