Adopt Truffles

*PLEASE NOTE:  The first step in the process is to complete an adoption application, which can be found here: Adoption Application

Meet Truffles!  This adorable little boy is a 4-year-old Shih Tzu who’s as sweet as can be.  Truffles experienced an injury to his eye and when his former owners couldn’t afford the surgery to remove the eye.  They left Truffles at the vet and didn’t come back.  The vet office reached out to us to find Truffles the home he deserves, and here we are!  He has spent the last couple of weeks settling in with his foster family and is now ready to find his forever home.

Truffles is a velcro doggie who will follow you everywhere you go.  You will never clean dishes, use the restroom, or watch tv alone with this little guy at your feet.  Truffles adores all people and is definitely more people-oriented than dog oriented.  He is living with two other dogs and coexists well, but is working on sharing human affection and enjoys being the center of attention.  He would do well in a home with another easy-going submissive dog, or as an only.

Truffles is learning how to go for walks and enjoys going everywhere with his people.  He does well in the car and is up for any adventure.  Truffles would do best in a home with someone around most of the time to give him lots of love and cuddles.  He is food and toy motivated and has the happiest little spirit!

Truffles is doing well with potty training but still has accidents from time to time, so he will need a patient family willing to work with him.  He doesn’t quite understand how to go potty off leash in the yard yet, but is very good at going on leash when you ask him to.  He would be a great apartment or townhouse dog for the right people.

Truffles is a special boy who is going to make the perfect addition to the right family.  If you’re interested in adopting this cutie, please fill out an adoption application here: Adoption Application
