THIS IS CARLY…and the only home that gets her will have to cherish her to life.  This little 8 lb, tan colored, 3-4 yr old, Shih Tzu mix (her eyes are outlined like black eyeliner like a Bichon Frise), with the cutest underbite ever, came to us terrified.  When I hold her, she grabs on to my arm like it’s a life or death situation!  We don’t know what her past was like, but we know it wasn’t good.  Still, she doesn’t have an ounce of aggression in her.  If people pass by on a walk she attempts to get as far away as possible!  It took us three days before she would even walk outside.  Breaks our heart.  She is blossoming a bit — but we’ve been loving her up and she does respond.  It is so much fun to see her jumping up and acting like a puppy!  She LOVES Dakota!!  It might take her a little while to warm up to you…but when she does it is so rewarding!!  She must have another small, sweet, canine companion to help her come out of her shell.  Sometimes she will growl at her roommate, but never fails to climb in bed with her!  Older kids would be OK…as long as they are not chaotic. Will you consider taking a chance on Carly?  You will cherish the rest of your days if you so!
