Hi!  My name is Mignon and I am so excited to be up for adoption so I can find my very own forever home!!!  My foster mom says that I get excited about lots of things!  But who wouldn’t as I now realize that there is nothing but good things in my future!!  The wonderful volunteers at Lone Star found me at the local animal shelter and now my life is looking up, up, up!!!

I’m a black and white Shih Tzu mix and am not much over 1 year old.  As you can see from my picture I have the cutest little underbite!!!  When I had my first visit to the vet I weighed about 8 pounds but I’m gaining weight and getting bigger now.   I love to cuddle when I am picked up.  I might take a little time to warm up to you, but once I know you I LOVE you!!!  I also like to go on car rides and usually the motion of the car makes me take a little nap. 

I would love to have a forever home with another dog who likes to play.  Because I am just a youngster, I need to learn all about playing with people, pets and toys.  I did get the chance to meet some cats at my foster home and I did just fine with them. 

If you’re looking for an adorable friend who loves to play and give kisses, I’m the fluffer for you!  Please check out my Petfinder page for more information about me.  If you think I would be the perfect young fluff for your family, please contact my foster mom at amykuc@yahoo.com

Ashley Wilkes

Hi!  My name is Ashley Wilkes Fitzgerald.  My name has special meaning so I want to tell you my story.  The first part of my life was a nightmare.  I lived under very terrible conditions – so bad that the local Humane Society took me and my siblings from our home.  We were sent to a rescue in North Carolina to some wonderful people named the Fitzgeralds.  Thus, our last name.  They named us after “Gone With the Wind” characters because we are such survivors.  When we were found, we had no hair at all.  Our bodies were covered with mange and skin infections.  Our skin was so scarred that we may never have a full body of hair.  I have hair over most of my body now, but only a few wisps of hair on my head. 

My age is really unknown due to the years of neglect I suffered the first few years of my life.  The doctorssay that I am anywhere between 6 and 10 years old.  It is believed that I am a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix.  I am a very well traveled little dog.  I was rescued in North Carolina.  I was sent to Lone Star Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso rescue in Houston, Texas, because they have had such success working with dogs with skin issues.  They were able to get my skin problems under control and now I just need regular baths.  I also recently went on a road trip to California!  I was supposed to go to a rescue there but they didn’t think they would be able to find a home for me.  I’m now back in Houston looking for my forever home.  I know there is someone out there that will give me a forever home.  I am a sweet and very loving little dog.  I LOVE to cuddle!  I also love to give kisses!  I’ve come such a long way from my early life.  All I need now is a forever home of my own.  If you are looking for a unique little dog I’m the dog for you! 

Please look at my Petfinder page for even more information about me.  And, you can always contact my foster mom at ADOPTIONINQUIRIES@yahoogroups.com  She knows how very special I am.

Bon Bon

Greetings!  My name is Bon Bon and I am a special little Lhasa lady.  I have a beautiful beige coat, I am 19 pounds, AND I am full of Lhasatude!!  That means that I am a typical Lhasa so if you know and love my breed, I’m the one for you.  I can be a bit of a grump at times and my foster mom sometimes calls me a grumpy little lady!!  There are certain things that upset me, but I let you know when I’m unhappy. 

Normally I’m a good girl and have come a long way since I came to Lone Star.  I know that I have to be a good girl to find my forever home.  I probably would like to be an only dog.  I don’t play with the other foster dogs, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like them.  There’s one thing that gets me upset about them.  If they get close to my food I am all Lhasa!!! 

I would love to find my forever home, preferably as an only dog.  If there are children in my new family that’s OK with me as long as they are over the age of 10 and understand my breed.  Please email ADOPTIONINQUIRIES@yahoogroups.com for more information about me.  You can also check out my Petfinder  page for even more information about me.
