MEET DUSTY…a cute, zaftig, 16 lb,  9 yr old, tan w/black tips, female Shih Tzu/Terrier/Yorkie — whatever you want her to be, doll!  Whatever her mix, it works for her!  She came to us from the shelter with a huge lipoma that was wrapped around her leg!  We thought for sure it was the “c” word…but it turned out to be a fatty tumor *nothing to worry about! 

Dusty was adopted to a home that really loved her and …but with Covid-19 issues and job changes requiring time away from home, the decision was made to rehome her.  She also came back with a very different haircut, but hair grows!

Dusty is a happy-go-lucky girl, with a bit of pep to her step.  Watch her video!  We’re pretty sure she was likely fed people food because when it’s around…she comes a runnin!  She has settled in and knows that there will be none of that until she gets down to her fighting weight of about 13 lbs!  Without question, Dusty is a Velcro dog and will follow you everywhere.  She is quiet, unless she wants something…like dinner, a walk, your attention….a treat!  While she is okay around other dogs (and cats) and has no aggression, Dusty would love to be your one and only (if someone is home) so she can hog all the attention!  She is good in the car, on walks… which would be good to exercise her…and seems to know what potty training is (but we never guarantee)!  Dusty would be perfect for a mature home (with grandchildren) looking for a companion to nap and play with — one of Dusty’s favorite things to do!!  She is protective of her home and will be vocal with strangers (but settles down) when you tell her “no.”  She has a great underbite, a few missing teeth and a good attitude!  If you are looking for a dog who will be your shadow, Dusty fits the bill!  Can she go home to your house??

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
