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. His foster
family is getting to know him and will be reporting soon.
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.

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 email@example.com.
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 still
not used to be petted, but follows his foster mom around all the time. 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, 6 years, male, 12.5 pounds
This little pup is a little sweetheart! Loves attention and sat next to me on
the whole car ride from AAC to Crossings! He even stuck his head out the
window when he could! His foster family is getting to know him and will be
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!
|Congratulations to Sawyer for
finding his forever home!
Shih Tzu, 7 years, male, 11.6 pounds
Sawyer is a spunky sweet little boy. He’s very playful and keeps himself
amused with all kinds of toys and chew toys. He hasn’t tried to play with my
Wee Rescue boys. He sleeps in our bedroom on a pillow at night. He’s still
in the potty training process, so he stays in the front entryway in our house
during the day when we are at work. He has learned the doggie door and
does go out by himself. He loves to be next to you on the couch or chair.
He’s learning to walk on a leash.
Shih Tzu, 10 years, female, 12 pounds
Pamela came to us from Killeen. 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 - http://weerescue.org/adoption.html.
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,
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, 3 years, male, 16 pounds
He is a super sweet boy and loves to be with his people. He is really calm in
the bathtub and enjoys snuggling on the couch. He gets along well with my
kids and seems to enjoy being around his new friend Lyla, too.
Charlie Brown had to be shaved down because he was covered with mats,
but that means he wants to snuggle more to keep warm.
|Congratulations to Prince
Pupalup for finding his forever
Shih Tzu, 6 years, male, 11.5 pounds
Prince Pupalup came to us from Austin Animal Center. He was very matted
and has a wound on his leg from the matts. He is an energetic and friendly
dog who loves to chase cats in play! Prince Pupalup needs an energetic
family to work off some of that energy!
Lhasa-mix, 1 year, male, 19 pounds
Digger was a mess when he came to us. He had to be shaved down while
under sedation for his neutering. He is a beautiful grey under all that hair.
Digger is an active boy, and loves to play. He is nervous about getting his
picture taken so his mom had to cuddle him. He has a cherry eye that will
be repaired this week, so the next picture will be even better.
|Congratulations to Sadie Mae for
finding her forever home!
Shih Tzu, 2 years, female, 12 pounds
Sadie Mae is a sweet little girl. She's about 2 years old and enjoys
snuggling with her human and being near them. She likes to play with toys
and rawhides and flip them around in the air with herself. She sleeps quietly
thru the night on her little pillow in bed. She gets a little upset when you
leave her, but calms down and doesn't get destructive, but does want
company full time.
Havanese-mix, 2 years, male, 12 pounds
Nugget is sweet and young! I suspect he is younger than 2! His whole body
wiggles when he wags his tail which is all the time! Nugget is in constant
play mode. He is super gentle and endured without issue 4 hours on the
grooming table cutting out a full body of mats and shaving him down! He is
loving scratches and getting used to love and being held and kissed on.
We are working on his potty training, but he was pretty neglected, so may
have never had a chance to learn.
|Congratulations to Allie for
finding her forever home!
Shih Tzu-mix, 6 years, female, 5.5 pounds
Hi my name is Allie. I am a 5.5 pound 6 year old little girl. Wee Rescue took
me in when some bigger dogs ruffed me up. I'm on the mend and looking
forward to finding my furever parents. Because I am so small it would be
best if I was in a home with mellow older dogs and no children. I'm a little
shy at first but I like to follow my foster mum around the house and my
favorite thing to do is sleep in fluffy blankets and beds.
Lhasa-mix, 5 years, female, 14 pounds
Candy came to us from Austin Animal Center. She is shy but warms up to
you and loves to sit with you. She gets along with other dogs, but really just
prefers to be with her forever friend.
Candy has just been spayed, and gone to her foster. Her foster family will
be getting to know her and Candy should be available for adoption at the
Meet and Greet on February 24.
Lhasa-mix, 1 year, female, 16 pounds
Bernadette came to us from Austin Animal Center. She is playful and gets
along with other dogs.
Bernadette has just been spayed, and gone to her foster. Her foster family
will be getting to know her and Bernadette should be available for adoption
at the Meet and Greet on February 24.
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
