My name is Turbo and I am one very lucky dog!  I’m the featured Fluff of the Week!  What could be better than that?  Actually, finding my forever home would be the best thing that could happen to me.  Let me tell you a little about myself.  I am a 6 year old, Shih Tzu boy.  And, as you can see from my picture, I have a beautiful black and white coat and a great haircut!  My foster mom says that I am her best boy.  I’m well-behaved, quiet, love to sit on laps, and I especially like to get ear rubs.  But, I am also all boy when I play.  I enjoy my foster brothers and sisters and love to run and romp with them. 

I follow my foster mom all over the house and love to sit next to her as she works.  I sleep with my foster mom too and cuddle with her whenever I can.   I’m not a barker, I only bark a little when I think my foster mom is taking too long to serve my breakfast or dinner!  I’m housebroken too – what more could you ask for? 

I have my very own Petfinder page and there’s more information about me there.  Please check that out.  I think I would be a great addition to your family.  I sure love my foster mom and my foster siblings, but I know that a forever home with my very own forever family would be the best thing for me.  Could that home be with you?  Please contact my foster mom at parsley@tamu.edu.  She’ll tell you what a great little guy I am and how I can become part of your family.

Hello!!!  My name is Memphis but I prefer the name Elvis.  I am handsome and debonair just like the original Elvis, but I don’t “howl” very well at all.  I’m a pretty laid back, sweet and gentle Shih Tzu guy who loves to go on walks, rides in the car, and just laze-around the house with my foster family.  The one thing that would make my life just perfect would be to find my very own forever family. 

 Let me tell you a little about myself.  As you can see from my picture, I have a beautiful black and white coat.  I am 5 years old and weigh about 12 pounds or so.   I am quite the happy-go-lucky lad except when there is a thunderstorm.  WOW do I ever HATE thunderstorms!!  When I first got to my foster home, my foster parents put me in my crate because they were going to be away from the house for a little while.  During that time a BIG LOUD THUNDER-DUNDER OF A STORM came our way.  My foster parents thought I would be safe in my crate, but I was so scared of the storm that I tried to chew my way out of the wire crate.  I found out that was not a very good solution and because of that experience I am missing a few front teeth.  But, I still look quite cute and handsome despite that!  Storms still scare me and now my foster parents don’t put me in the crate during a storm.  I need to learn that storms will not hurt me and hopefully that day will come soon!!

 I am working on my house training and that is coming along quite nicely.  My foster parents praise me when I “do the right thing” and I love to be praised!  I also love treats and will do a little happy dance when I think a treat should come my way.  I enjoy other dogs and I am also good with children.  To put it bluntly, I am just about the perfect fluff and would love to be your special fluff!  I can’t wait to show you what a great little guy I am.

 If you’d like to hear more about me, please email my foster mom at mina184@yahoo.com  She knows how very special I am and she would love to tell you all about me.  You can also check out my Petfinder page for even more information.  You can even apply to adopt me at www.shihtzurescue.com

Murdock 1

Hi!  My name is Murdock Harris.  I’m a 3 year old black and gray Shih Tzu mix boy.  When I first came to Lone Star I weighed about 11 pounds, but now I am gaining some weight and I’m starting to look pretty good if I must say so myself!!  The volunteers at Lone Star found me in the local animal shelter just in the nick of time!!!  For some reason nobody was interested in a dog who didn’t even face the camera for his photo!   I guess they didn’t realize I am blind and a little hard of hearing.  Don’t think that slows me down though!  I can still prance around with the best of them!

I have a foster brother who likes to play with me and jump all over me.  I tolerate this quite well and usually just wait for him to get tired.  I’m not a total laze-about though!   You should see me dance around when my foster mom gets home.  I’ll show you excitement.  She says she has never seen a dog that wags his tail so much.  It seems to go constantly.  I love my new foster home, and I feel very lucky to be here,  but I’ll be honest, I’ll be glad to find my forever home where someone will give me lots and lots of love and cuddles.

I’m great with children who understand my limitations and I’d love to have another dog to play with on occasion.   My foster mom says she thinks I will do great almost anywhere.   I have learned to adapt very well to my disabilities and hope I can find a forever family who can see what a wonderful little fluffer I am! 

Please look at my Petfinder page for more information about me.  Also, please contact my foster mom at amykuc@yahoo.com.   She’ll be happy to tell you what a great guy I am.
