GISELLA … is an 10.6 lb, cream/black, 2-3yr old,  energized Shih Tzu!! She was a stray who just walked into a yard one day and decided to stay!  Unfortunately, the “yard’s family” were allergic to fleas (she was infested with fleas/ticks, stickers and other earthly matter! … again Gisella was homeless.   Her skin was raw after shaving her down, but everything is calming down now. Once she was groomed, we learned she only had one good eye under all that hair!!   Her eye was deformed at birth, so we had it removed to avoid any further infection.  She is beautiful, happy, silly, loving and a kissyface girl!  She would love to have a playful companion; she will be happy with a ton of attention — canine and human!!  Gisella will bark if she is left alone, so apartment living isn’t the best suited for her.  She does get a little fearful, so a home with older kids if any would be best.  Once she knows you, the most harm she would do is kiss you to death!!

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
