Arrival Story:
Mario was dumped at ACC in Brooklyn, NY...a high kill shelter. His owners said he was too old and did not want him anymore. Thankfully, Mario was pulled by a wonderful rescue group, called Ruff House Rescue! They had been at the shelter to pull another dog when, by the grace of God, someone noticed poor, little Mario huddled in the back of a cage. They took him out of that place that day! Annabelle, Rex, and Wolfie's momma, Cheryl, saw his Petfinder ad and posted it on FB. There, The Shih Tzu Kisses family mommy saw it and both of these dear friends of mine thought that pawhaps Braxton might like a brother. Well, long story short, Mario now has his Furever Home!!

Mario is about 9 years old and has several health issues. He had not been neutered, and he has severe dental disease, which in turn has affected his kidney enzymes. He also has prostate issues, which hopefully will ease now that he has been neutered. Mario also had a dental and hopefully with the right care, his mouth will not get worse. He also has an eye condition along with an ulcer in the left day. Despite all this, Mario is just a little love-bug and has made his way into our hearts (yes, even Braxton's!!!)!
