MEET CROSBY….a precious, sable, 13 lb, apx 9 yr old, Shih Tzu/Brussels Griffon mix, (with a docked tail).  Can you believe that someone in Moreno Valley just opened their car door,  dumped this blind baby in the middle of the street, on the hot pavement and never looked back??  Fortunately, a good Samaritan saw him, scooped him up (not knowing he was dumped) and searched for his family.  He was intact, no collar, no chip….nothing.  And blind :((  Now, he has been fixed, has his shots and he is feeling better every day.  He also had a bad ear infection, which was causing him vertigo…but he is all fixed up now.  HE LOVES CATS, OTHER DOGS AND TOYS!!  While he probably wouldn’t be the right fit for kids, he could go into almost any home.  Crosby is a cuddler.  He is just learning what a belly rub is!  Sometimes, he will give a low, deep, growl when he is loving the attention!  He loves to go for walks, he is very smart and may see shadows because he does his best (on leash) to walk up/down the stairs.  Very food motivated.  We only got him a 8/20 and he is still recovering from his surgery and he is becoming more active every day.. does his business outside (most of the time or on a pad) and he just wants to be your baby.  We have recently noticed that he does circle — could be neurological.  We are treating him and hoping we can solve the problem.  Probably is genetic. Anyway…. Kisses are coming!  These dogs live long lives, and Crosby is just beginning his second chapter!  If you need a companion as much as Crosby does…come and meet him!
