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.

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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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 - 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.

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, 14+ 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.

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.
|Congratulations to Bogey for
finding his forever home!
Pekingese, 1 year, male, 12 pounds
Bogey is so gentle and laid in my lap the whole ride. He is just a little timid
too - he is going to wring your heart strings. Just look at his pics! His Foster
family is getting to know him and will be reporting soon.
Pekingese, 8 years, female, 19 pounds
MJ was an owner surrender. Her owner had her all her life, but with 5
children and an invalid mother she became overwhelmed. The owner
reached out to Wee Rescue. MJ was stressed and snippy, and needed
dental work. She lost 10 teeth. MJ feels much better, and is now working on
her girlish figure. She is friendly with other people and dogs, but likes being
the only princess. MJ is well-behaved and potty-trained. MJ would be a
Lhasa-mix, 3-4 years old, male, 16 pounds
Max is potty and house trained. He likes to go walking and go for rides.
He knows how to use the doggie door. Max would be great with older
kids who will play with him outside with the balls and toys. He would
enjoy walking with kids to school. He likes to be “all about him” dog.
Shih Tzu, 8 years, male, 12 pounds
Sawyer is a spunky sweet little boy. He’s very playful and keeps himself
amused with all kinds of toys.He hasn’t tried to play with my Wee Rescue
boys.During the day when we are at work, he is in the kennel. My husband
is home sometimes so Sawyer is in and out of the kennel a lot. He has
learned the doggie door and does go out by himself. He loves to be next to
you on the couch or chair…a great companion. He sleeps in our bedroom
on a pillow at night. He is almost fully potty trained. He’s learning to walk on
Havanese, 1 year, male, 11 pounds
Ralphie is a stray from Austin Animal Center. He is super sweet and loves
people-full of energy too. He has a little brown nose! He is wearing a cone
because he had a cherry eye. His foster family is getting to know him and
will be reporting soon.
|Tashi (left) and Havier (right)
Havier is a gray Havanese on the right. He is the more energetic of the two
and prefers to follow his people around. He has some allergy issues but
seems to be handled well with Apoquel. Havi likes to play outside and go for
walks but does not like extreme heat. He does like to play in the water.
Tashi is a cream colored Lhasa Apso on the left. He likes to play hard and
rest hard. He loves to explore and lay in a dog bed a lot of the time, though
he likes to be on my lap too. Both dogs are puppy pad trained. It would be
great if they could be with someone who is home most of the time, has a
fenced backyard and a doggy door would be really great for both dogs.
Havanese, 1 year, female, 10 pounds
Sunshine is a one year old, 9.7 pound, Havanese. She came to us
