  Misty, 5-7 years Female Shih Tzu  Mix
Misty Misty

Misty is the most precious and sweet Shih Tzu who just underwent oral surgery to repair advanced periodontal disease that led to a broken jaw. Misty was dumped a high volume kill shelter and left to die. This adorable sweetheart did not deserve this kind of treatment she got. Along with the broken jaw she suffered severe hair loss due to a flea allergy. She probably was forced to live outside. Thankfully Misty has been in a loving foster home where she has progressed, healed and come into her own quickly. Her mouth is still sore so we're going to wait until her jaw is completely healed before sending her to her special adopter. Meanwhile we need to raise funds to pay for her surgery. The vet hospital quoted us at least $1600. Despite her ordeal, Misty is very playful and friendly with people, dogs and cats. True to the breed, Misty is a companion dog and wants nothing more than to quietly be near to her person, but not in a clingy sort of way. She is not the dog to be companion to another dog as she much prefers to be near her person and she doesn't need other dogs or small children bumping her face. She is extremely loving and affectionate. She also has bursts of comic playfulness. She has a great appetite and has been on a soft diet. Her diet is helping her hair loss and her regal flowing coat is beginning to thicken and shine. She is house trained, crate trained and excellent on leash. Misty is waiting to be someone’s cherished love. We will show her on 10/11 at our shelter from 1-3 PM.
