Rescue Me ID: 17-04-21-00229TIPPER (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    SAY HELLO TO TIPPER! Tipper is an adorable 6 year old black female Shih Tzu mix girl. What she is mixed with is unknown, but she is mostly a Tzu girl! Tipper has a very nice temperament. She greets everyone she meets with a gentle smile and a wag of the tail. Tipper came to us through no fault of her own. Her owner gave her up due to owner's poor health and inability to care for her the way she should be. Tipper gets on well with her mates at her foster's home. She is a little shy at first, but very friendly and loves everyone which is a typical Shih Tzu temperament! She is housetrained as well as leash trained and enjoys her rides in ... (Read More)the car. With housetraining, as with all rescues, Tipper will need both patience and gentle guidance as where she is to go and what she is to do until she is comfortable and feels safe in her new surroundings. Tipper will only go to a home with older teens who understand and respect her small size. Even better would be a home with another gentle dog close to both her size and age. Tipper is a longer coated breed that will require weekly brushing as well as regular professional grooming every 6 to 8 weeks. Tipper's adoption fee is 400.00. This includes her spay, vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-13-00012COMET (male)

Lhasa Apso Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    SAY HELLO TO COMET! Comet is an absolutely adorable 1 year old Lhasa Apso / Poodle mix or 'LhasaPoo' boy. Comet was surrendered to our rescue by owners who could not afford the basics for him ~ his neuter, vaccinations or vet care for him. He needed surgery for an inflamed third eyelid sometimes called a 'cherry eye.' Once settled in with our rescue, the first thing we did for this little boy was have his eyelid corrected for him. We are so happy to report that Comet had successful surgery and recurrence of this condition is no more likely for him than any other dog. Weighing in at 12 pounds, Comet is sweet, adoring and lovable, however ... (Read More)he sometimes can be aggressive with other males or have a bit of 'Lhasa-tude'. Now that he has been neutered, we would expect to see an improvement in this behavior. Comet's ideal family would be with an adult home or an adult home with older teens. Comet greets everyone he meets with a wagging tail and a happy smile. Given his young age, Comet still needs typical puppy training and gentle guidance, perhaps a bit more so since his early months seemed to have lacked expected training. Comet is a longer coated breed which will require weekly brushing as well as professional grooming every 6 to 8 weeks. Comet's adoption fee is 450.00. This fee includes his neuter, vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, 'Cherry Eye' repair, de-worming, microchip and professional grooming. (Less)

He is healthier, has had his teeth cleaned (and has very few left) and he has gotten back that bounce in his step! A little hard of hearing (but don't tell him that!), Dale has minor allergies and seems to do best on a grain free diet. He also has a sluggish thyroid, so he takes a very inexpensive thyroid pill daily. Dale needs ... (Read More)his own forever home. We are certain he will thrive in a loving home environment.
