We got a call on Thursday from the neighboring town's Humane Shelter that they had a Maltese/Shih Tsu mix pup about 9 months old. Her owner was an elderly lady who could no longer keep up with the care of a puppy. My DH went over from work and sent me a couple of snapshots & I was hooked. He was already named Benji & since he answers so well to that, we'll probably keep that name. He's a little shy but already coming out of it. He loves our kitty and like to try to play with her, as much as she'll let him!!
We took guardianship of a five-year-old Shih Tzu from a Humane Society last summer. Our first dog companion ever, so it has been a real delight sharing our home & our lives with our four-footed little friend.
Any update on your Benji pup since you adopted him?
I do feel sad for young dogs that get bought by very elderly people as, so often, they end up at the shelter as their original owners cannot cope with the demands of a growing and energetic youngster. So glad that he has now got an excellent home.
I go into a lot of rescue places to groom rescue dogs, to spruce them up ready for new owners :) 1649 days ago
