Shih Tzu, 12 years, female, 12 pounds

Schatzi came to us from the Killeen Shelter. She had surgery for mammary
masses and a cyst. The mammary tumors came back as cancerous. Schatzi
had further surgeries for the tumors, but there are no masses in her lungs.
Schatzi has recovered and is a sweet, roly poly little girl.
Lhasa, 11 years old, male, 26 pounds

Leo has cataracts in both eyes and is probably blind. He came to us
from Austin Animal Center as a stray. He was a mess. Look at this
sweet boy now! He is a sweet boy, just needs some TLC.
Lhasa-Terrier mix, 14 years, male, 15 pounds

Milo was previously adopted from Wee Rescue in 2006 by a wonderful
older couple, but their family has now asked us to find a new home for him.
He is a loving, mellow dog who enjoys naps and short walks. He has had
surgery for both his knee and bladder stones and has recovered very well.
He does need to be on special food, but otherwise has no health problems.
Milo is house broken, enjoys rides in the car and loves to get treats! He
does not do well with children. Milo would be best as an only dog or with
older, laid-back dogs.
Pomeranian, 5 years, male, 7 pounds

Franklin came to us from AAC. He is a tiny sweet guy and is getting over
surgery for a mass. After five rounds of chemo, unfortunately his cancer did
not go into remission. His prognosis is in question. He is safe and loved in
his foster home. Wee hope you will help with his medical expenses.

Shih Tzu, 10 years, female, 12 pounds

We suspect that someone just dumped this sweet little girl since she
was found as a stray and taken to Austin Animal Center. Stardust only
has one eye, and may be deaf. And to add to it a mass was found on
her ovary, when it was removed they found that it had not spread
anywhere. Her foster mom is getting to know her and will be reporting
Shih Tzu-mix, 7-8 years, male, 11 pounds

We just don't know why this guy has not been adopted. Yeah, Bandit is
deaf and has limited eyesight. But he is smart. He learned how to walk on a
leash in days. I am looking for a special person to love and care for me. I
am 7 to 8 years old and have had a ruff life. I am deaf and have limited eye
sight. Bandit is totally house broken and will bark to go out. He does have
to have two insulin shots everyday but I don't mind them at all. Please come
and meet me and I will cuddle and give you kisses.
Papillon-mix, 5 years, female, 8.5 pounds

Gabriela came from Austin Animal Center as a stray. She is Heartworm
positive, so we will have her for a few months as she goes through her
treatment. She is a sad little girl right now, but she will definitely perk up
when she is safe and sound in a loving foster home for a while.
Angel (nicknamed Hazel)
Shih Tzu, 2 years, female, 14 pounds

UPDATE: Dr. Howell purchased a smaller wheelchair
that makes it easier getting around. She is a special
favorite of Crossing Animal Clinic. If you would like to
meet her, please contact

Angel was surrendered to AAC after she lost use of her
back legs. She also is unable to urinate on her own.
After her exam, x-rays and consulting with several
specialty vets it was determined that Wee are going to
treat her with steroids and hopefully in time she will
regain use of her bladder. Luckily someone donated a
doggie wheel chair to us several months ago and Angel
seems to like it!  She should be scooting around in no
time. Thanks to Dr. Howell for fostering her and helping
to manage her progress. Check out her video!
Phoenix aka the "Dude"
Shih Tzu, 10 years, male, 12 pounds

Phoenix was found on Metric in North Austin. Wee believe that he was
dumped after years as a breeding male. He was skinny, and his feet are
somewhat misshapen from years of living in a cage. He also has a cataract
and will have to have eye drops. But he loves to sit in the sun and follow his
foster mom around. He is quiet. He has learned the doggie door. He is
called "Dude" because he has a slow easy-going style of walking.
Pekingese, 7 years, female, 9.7 pounds

Wee think that dear Valerie was dumped by a puppy mill breeder. She
is so sweet, but she has had a hard life. One of her eyes is
congenitally malformed. Valerie has completed her heartworm
treatment. She does love people, and will be a great friend. She is
house-trained and uses the doggy door on her own.
Shih Tzu, 8 years, male, 12 pounds

Fritz came to us from the Bastrop Animal Shelter. He does have skin issues
and will need medicated baths several times a week. We have had a lot of
success with dogs that come to us with skin issues and after treatment, a
good diet and a lot of TLC they heal just fine. His foster family is getting to
know him and will be reporting soon!
Shih Tzu, 10 years, female, 12 pounds

Pamela came to us from Killeen. She is such a happy girl and loves to
fetch! She is missing some teeth so her tongue hangs out all the time! She
also has a dry eye and will come with eye meds.  She is a sweet girl and
needs someone to give her a lot of TLC.

Pamela is available now for adoption. Please submit an application which
you can find on our website -
Lhasa-mix, 10 years, male, 11 pounds

Bernie came to us from Austin Animal Center. He does have some joint
issues which makes him a little uncomfortable but we put him on meds to
help out. He was in a neglect situation, and was underweight. He is being
spoiled by his foster parents until he gets his strength back. Bernie
deserves to be in a loving home for the rest of his life. He has a great,
sweet personality.
Saint Nick
Shih Tzu, 2 years, male, 19 pounds

Saint Nick came to us from Austin Animal Center. He has lost a little weight
since he has been forced to eat dog food, but he still likes to mooch a little.
Nick can be a little standoffish to humans, but bonds with a human. Nick
seems to have issues with men, and we suspect children. He tolerates other
dogs, but would still much prefer to be with his human. Nick also exhibits
jealousy when other dogs or people get near his special person. We are
working on that. Very well house-trained and uses the doggie door. Nick will
be available for adoption at the next meet and greet on January 13th.

Shih Tzu-mix, 2 years, male, 8 pounds

Bruno came to Wee rescue as an abuse case. This sweet loving little guy had a broken
jaw in four places and horribly matted. He was so skinny his hip bone, ribs and vertebra
showed through his skin. With all if that he still just wants to be held and love. He is 8
pound but should be 12 pounds. He will have his last surgery at the end of February and
is doing very well with all of the jaw injury issues. He should be back to normal soon. We
are working on potty training. He is a smart little guy so it should not take long. Please
come by our next Meet and Greet and meet this wonderful little guy!

His surgeries have been over $4,000. Please help us help him continue on his way to
Bichon-mix, 3 years, female, 15.5 pounds

Heather came to us from Austin Animal Center as a stray.  She is house
broken, very friendly, and loves everyone she meets. Her favorite spot is in
your lap.
Poodle-Schnauzer mix, 6 month, female, 9 pounds

Daisy is a darling, young (6 months), little (9 pounds), mini
Poodle/Schnauzer mix. She came to us very sick with a "mega
esophagus".  Which meant she couldn't keep food or water down.
We weren't sure she was going to make it through the weekend.  

With a lot of TLC from Lynda and Mike, research and Doctor
visits, she has made an amazing comeback! She has already put
on some weight and is a happy puppy.  

She does need to be fed several small meals a day sitting up for
the feeding and 20-25 minutes after. Lynda & Mike have been
feeding her in a standup backpack.  And Mike has built her a
"Bailey Chair" which is basically a highchair for dogs. Wee Rescue
will provide this chair. She will need to be fed in either the
backpack or the highchair. Daisy does well being fed either way.

She is very, very sweet and now that she has regained her
strength, she wants to play. She's house broken and loves to be
held and cuddled. If you would like to be a part of her success
story, please adopt this girl and give her a forever home.
Shih Tzu, 10+ years, male, 14 pounds

Derby came to us for Austin Animal Center. He was in pretty bad shape.
Wee had to pull a number of teeth, but Derby is back to eating solid food.
He lost his left eye, but has recovered from that surgery. His skin still needs
some love and care, but looking much better. Happy boy, and will be a
great companion.
He does best walking on a leash than letting him does his
business on his own schedule. He is quiet, but enjoys a good bark with the
rest of the dogs.
Shih Tzu/Silky Terrier-mix, 2 years old, female, 6.5 pounds

JoJo came to us from Austin Animal Center as a stray. Her foster family
is getting to know her and will be reporting soon.
Lhasa-mix, 10 years, male, 11 pounds

Bobo's foster family is getting to know him and will be reporting soon!
Lhasa Apso-mix, 7 years, male, 17 pounds

Brodie was a surrender due to family allergy and asthma problems. He
house trained and loves to play with his toys, go for walks, and sit on your
lap. He was shaved down due to skin issues, had surgery for a cherry eye
and is healing nicely. Brodie just wants to be loved.
