    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] My husband and I ran a dog rescue for the last 10 years at our rural property. Our dogs lived in a comfortable home environment with as much love and attention as they desired. But my husband passed away unexpectedly a few months ago and I can no longer stay at the property, so I am having to rehome some of our dogs. I am moving in 2-4 weeks. Oliver is a friendly, enthusiastic little guy. I've always called him our little circus dog. He is a lot of fun. He is fearful of new people, but very friendly after getting to know them. He seems uncomfortable with my other dogs, seems to be because he is quite the ... (Read More)underdog here... Oliver has some health issues, but all are manageable. -Epilepsy-he takes phenobarbital every 12 hours -Bladder stones- he is on special food, very possible needs surgery. Oliver is having issues holding his urine because of the stones... (I am unable to afford the surgery in my situation, don't let this stop you, I will do whatever I can to help with this!) -Blind in one eye from an injury - stable, no further treatment needed -History of Pancreatitis - will have no more issues as long as he stays on his prescribed food I want more than anything to find Oliver a loving home to live out his life. I feel terrible he has been left in this position. I planned to keep him forever. I have been trying to find her a new home for 3 months now. I am getting really worried. Please contact me if you would like to meet this very special guy. Feel free to text me 5732752936. Thanks! (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This 'ol gal was found in the rain infested with fleas. By luck, we were able to bring closure to her story. Her owner loved her & treated her like a princess but passed away suddenly. Cookie was rehomed to what the family thought was a good home. Turns out it was a home of horrors. No dog deserves this & after all she lost? On the upside, she was picked up by a nice guy & taken to safety to us. After many, many months of care, she is ready for adoption! Cookie is 15! She is pretty easy to care for according to her foster home. She loves to nap, doesn't mind a crate, & will let you know when she needs to potty. She has age-appropriate slight ...

Shih Tzu    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    I got him off of Facebook for my mom and dad but I think he was abused by men or something. He is a little skittish and stays under beds so you can't get him out without him trying to bite you. I'm wanting to get him into a great home with someone who knows the breed instead of just him going home to home.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in Missouri
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in Missouri if they match your IifestyIe. The Shih-Tzu is a toy breed similar to the Pekingese. Shih-Tzus are proud little dogs and loaded with personality. Shih-Tzus are gentle and do fine with children who are taught to respect the dogs. Shih-Tzus bark to announce people approaching their homes. Shih-Tzus need early obedience training and may require patience when housebreaking. A Shih-Tzu will do just fine in an apartment if it gets enough exercise.
