Mango had been someone's beloved pet since she was six weeks old. Then a grandchild entered the picture and Mango was no longer important to the family, so they contacted Rescue.
She had a serious eye ulcer that would have most likely ruptured resulting in her losing an eye. She was not given any medical attention to address the problem and it was obviously very painful for her.
She came to rescue where she was immediately started on a long-term treatment with an opthalmologic antibiotic. After a couple of weeks of medication, the eye looks so much better and she is no longer in pain. There is still a scar, which may be permanent. She seems to be able to see, but may have lost partial vision.
It took her a couple of weeks to come out of her shell, most likely due to the unfamiliar environment and the pain she was experiencing. She was probably wondering what she had done wrong to become displaced.
She is a little timid, but is starting to bark excitedly and wiggle around. She seems to be housebroken. She would probably do best in a home with no children, since she perceived the grandchild as a threat to her when the child would corner her. She would probably be comfortable with another small dog in the home or a home as an only dog. The ideal home would be a young retired, active family that loves Shih Tzu.
We do process the applications in the order that they are received. We cannot guarantee any particular dog will still be available by the time we get to your application. We cannot respond to each application or keep you updated as we go along. We do not consider a dog adopted until the process has been completed and a contract has been signed. As long as the dog is still listed, it is still available and we are processing applications. As soon as a dog is adopted, it is removed from the list. If you apply and your application is approved, we will contact you. If you decide not to wait or find another dog, please let us know so we can go on to another application.
