A Female Shih Tzu presently Available For Adoption
Prospective adopters should recognize that having a dog is more than just filling bowls with food and water and going for leisurely walks. Too many people do not comprehend just how much money the family dog may require. Dogs, especially puppies, can be so appealing but before you assume that you are going to add one to your family, you should be sensible about your ability to financially care for a dog. Truthfully, the cost can be anywhere from $500 to $2,000 annually. That is a lot of money! Don’t overlook that as dogs approach middle age, they need to have their teeth cleaned and some may develop other conditions such as dry eyes, crystals or stones, heart conditions, etc. Not to mention, you must always be prepared for unforeseen accidents and illnesses.
Meet Fibi, a 9-year-old loveable Shih Tzu who came to Animatch as an unclaimed stray. Honestly, we believe that she was “dumped” – a senior who had outlived her usefulness. To her humans, it was cheaper to get another dog than to see to her rotten teeth and take care of her eye (which had to be removed). You can see that she is so grateful that her pain is gone; she has ceased whimpering and pacing in agony. Fibi still has a lot of zip in her step and is even showing that she has a playful side. She deserves to be pampered and protected for her remaining years and we know that there is a family out there who is willing to change this girl’s luck around. Since we have no history on Fibi, an adult home or one with older, respectful children would best suit her. This adorable girl still has so much to offer; in return for a happy retirement home, she promises to be a devoted, lifetime companion. Please consider adopting Fibi and fill in the Adoption Form.
“Some call me a senior dog. That just means that I have years of experience in the fine art of friendship.”
