THIS IS ILIANA….a precious 5 yr old, tri colored, 13 lb, Shih Tzu, who we pulled from the North Central Shelter.  She looked like this straight out of the shelter so we nicknamed her Ms. Sticker!

Iliana was a mess, with a mammary tumor, umbilical hernia and a foxtail in her eye, causing it to rupture 🙁  The tumor was benign, and we were able to save her eye, but she doesn’t have any vision in it.  That being said, she is one of the smartest dogs ever and fit seamlessly in our home.  We think that Iliana has learned to be independent because she had no choice, but she longs for affection.  When putting drops into her eyes, she resists at first and then just hugs you when it’s all done!  She seems to be potty trained believe it or not!  However, she likes long walks and usually will pp…but then do #2 on a pp pad!  It is actually predictable!  If she can’t get outside, she will use a pp pad (but we don’t guarantee at your house!).  She barks to alert, is a great eater, loves to go on long walks (is good on the leash) and in the car.  She is good with everyone…a little shy at first.  She navigates up and down the stairs like a seeing eye dog!  She does not bump into things and only requires drops in her eyes.  She LOVES toys and LOVES bones and kids!  We don’t think that Iliana has had a lot of love in her life, and we want her to go to a home where she will get oodles of attention and love.  Every day, she gets sweeter and sweeter.  She just doesn’t want to “impose.”  Could you love a dog like Iliana?  She really is easy to love!

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
