Arrival Story:
Our ShihTzu, Gizmo, passed away suddenly. He was a special boy who brought joy to our lives because he didn't see himself as disabled, he didn't SEE, or hear. He taught us a lot of humility. Our hearts were broken, and there was an empty spot to fill, so I began watching the local city animal shelter's website for a new baby. I saw his photo online, and the description said that he was in pretty bad shape due to neglect. My kinda' pup! Upon visiting him at the shelter, they had thought he was also deaf, which would have been fine given our years with Gizmo. Instead, he was depressed and not interested in making an effort when you walked up to his cage, and at first meeting it did appear that he didn't hear. But as soon as I got him out on a leash and walking outside in the grassy area for meeting pups and going potty, he perked up! He was a nasty color, choppy scissored haircut, overgrown tangled matting on his toenails, and flea covered red skin. Off to the vet's office we went for his rabies shot, a Capstar and a general once over including a bath and nail trim. So at least on the way home he smelled better :-) He was immediately good on a leash, knew to jump in the passenger seat and "sit". He understands "No" and doesn't argue, but he does talk back. If you tell him to sit for a treat, he will, and he'll even speak, but then he continues to tell you all about why he would rather not have just one! We have groomed him twice, clipping him short to remove dry, dead hair and to survive this Texas heat. He's bathed a couple of times a week with Epi-Soothe to help his skin heal. He's turning into a real boy! We love him and hope to have him a long, long time. ***Our hearts are broken. Jasper went into acute renal failure and left for the bridge on May 29, 2013***
