Description: 
Please take a long look at this special face and meet our Brownie! Brownie is a three year old Shih Tzu who is wishing for a family that will love him just as he is! We rescued Brownie from a high kill shelter where he was about to be euthanized because he is different. Brownie was likely the product of poor backyard breeding and does have some special needs. As you can see, Brownie's jaw and mouth were not formed correctly and he can put his tongue in his mouth but not for long periods of time. This doesn't slow Brownie down at all and he eats the same food all our dogs eat and finishes the bowl each time! Brownie also has poor tear ducts and when he came to us his sweet eyes were shut due to infections. Brownie can see just fine and only needs eye drops once per day, but those drops are vital to Brownie's well being. The drops are not expensive and we will be discuss continued care with anyone interested in adopting Brownie. Brownie doesn't seem to know he is any different from any of our dogs. He has a roommate during the day and is very good with other dogs. He is totally sweet-natured and loves attention! We know Brownie looks a little different but in our eyes it just makes him special. Please give him a second chance!
