Hello!!! My name is A. Yardley Turner. Isn’t that a GREAT name? The “A” in my name stands for Adorable, Appreciative, and Awesome. “Appreciative” is definitely what I would be if you gave me my forever home. I am a 9 year old Shih Tzu mix boy who has had a difficult life. But, now I am in a wonderful foster home, learning all about what the good life is. I spent part of my life outside tied to a tree when my first family moved away. The neighbors helped me out of that situation and now I am in a foster home. Believe it or not, I live in Kansas, but I can travel anywhere if there is a family out there for me.
I’m a little overweight, but my foster dad is helping me lose those extra pounds. He takes me for walks every day. When he brings out the leash I think to myself “Oh, no, not again”, but then we start walking and I see the birds and trees and everything else and totally forget that I didn’t want to go in the first place. I also only have one tooth! But, that does not keep me from eating my dry kibble, and treats. Can you see why I’m a bit on the pudgy side?
I’m not a very affectionate guy, but I do show you that I love you by running and jumping and playing and trying to make you laugh. I also enjoy just sitting and relaxing by your side. Here’s another picture of me just relaxing.
I bark when I want something, usually that something is food as, have I mentioned this before, I do love to eat! I live with other foster dogs, but I usually just leave them alone. I am also on some medicine and take my eye drops and thyroid pill without a problem.
I know I might be a bit of a challenge as I do have some peculiarities as you can see. But I do promise you that I will love you from afar and be very, very happy in my new forever home. My foster dad wrote up a great bio of me on my Petfinder site. Check it out and contact us at www.shihtzu-rescue.com to find out even more information about me or to adopt me. There’s a big surprise about my adoption fee that you can also check out on my Petfinder page.
I am altered, up to date on all my shots, and am heartworm negative.
