Breed: Mixed Breed
Location: Anna, TX
This handsome Shih Tzu mix was one of two dogs rescued by our Julie many months ago.
His story is a long one and not a good one. He is brother to Louise and they were found living in a very bad situation in a basement, covered in their own excrement for a very long time. They were completely matted and their skin was in horrible condition, and their eyes were crusted over and sore. They had no trust in humans and would lunge and bark at any person who came near them making a spectacle of themselves because they were terrified of people.
They have lived with Julie and have learned to trust her for quite some time now. Once she moved here our volunteers spent more time with them and they have gotten much better socially, even approaching some for affection and wanting to be held.
When Julie left for a trip, we had them stay at the Ranch where they just shined. They love us and wag their tails and are very friendly with us. They get frightened sometimes if you move to quickly but they calm right down with comforting words and they then wag and are happy again. We are searching for separate homes for these two where they can be happy and blossom as individuals.
He is very good with all other dogs as well as with cats.
His vetting has been completed and because of his dry eye condition he will need to stay on eye drops for the rest of his life.
Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue, Louie!
