MEET DORI….a very “camera shy” taupe/white, 7.5 lb, 5-6 yr old Shih Tzu, who came to us from the Lancaster shelter with a bladder stone the size of a small golf ball inside of her!!  Poor baby.  Yet, never a complaint~!~  This little imp is such a lover.  She adores being in your arms and being pet and will give you lots of kisses to prove it.  We think she was possibly debarked because her bark sounds like a fog horn (but not as loud!)  She doesn’t bark much unless she wants to tell you something … like she has to go out.  She is still learning what it’s like to be without that bladder stone, but that should subside in no time.  Dori is a wonderful eater and loves her food (she is on special food and will need to stay on it).  She is happy go lucky and when she looks at you with those big brown eyes, you will say yes to whatever she asks!!  A mature home with or without other dogs would be good for her….as long as she is not left behind (and she shouldn’t be, she is very portable).  A home with a lot of love is what she needs….does that sound like you?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
