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, 5 years old, female, 9 pounds
Dear little Jingles came to us from the Killeen and she has led a very
tough life. Jingles is only five years old, and has bad eyes and most
likely blind. She is a sweet girl, but is somewhat frightened by the
crowds at Meet and Greets. Jingles gets around her house quite well,
but won't jump down from a chair. Check out this sweet girl.
Shih Tzu, 6-7 years, male, 21 pounds
My foster mom thinks I have silly personality for a dog. I am a big Shih
Tzu with a lot of hair and it is fluffy. I like to buff your feet when you are
sitting. I can keep them warm too! I do well walking and I do have good
manners for that. I go car riding, too. I get along with other dogs, would
like to play but I have not found a playmate, yet. I am trying to learn to
use the doggie door but I rather someone open the door for me, so I
can feel like a VIP. I am not good with small children. I like to play with
my toys and be outside with my foster mom.

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. The little girls is on her way to recovery.
This surgery is expensive, but who can deny that sweet face a better
future. Please donate, if you can!
Shih Tzu, 6-8 years, male, 8 pounds
Bronco came to us from Austin Animal Center. Bronco is the sweetest pup. He is very
small. He is a bit timid and takes a little bit, not long with people and other dogs. He is
afraid of big dogs. I'm not sure that would be a good fit for him.
For a little guy Bronco has a pretty big appetite. He would eat all day if I let him. He
scarfs done his food. He's also excited when we go outside and has a pretty leisure
walk. He takes care of business pretty quickly. I am working with him on house
training but I think he's doing well. He's pretty much on our schedule now and
accidents have reduced significantly.
He has a lot of energy he plays with toys, runs around my apartment, loves his
peanut butter kong and bully sticks. Medically, he's doing well. His skin is clearing up
and fur growing back. The vet said he will need eye drops indefinitely because he
has dry eyes.
Peke-mix, 8 years, female, 14 pounds
Anastasia came to us from Austin Animal Center. She had some skin issues due
to neglect, but her hair is growing back in, and it is soft and wavy. She is quiet,
but has the strong personality of a Pekingese, and she won't take any guff.
Otherwise, she is sweet and gentle. She is house-broken. Anastasia loves to be
near her mom. Her foster mom thinks she is very special. Anastasia would
probably do best in a quiet household, but she does get along with other dogs.
Shih Tzu, 7 years old, female, 10.7 pounds
Mia came to us from AAC as a stray with a microchipped. The owners
were called and they surrendered her. This is the fourth Shih Tzu they
surrendered this year - so possibly a hoarding situation. She is very
scared and will need to be given her space until she warms up to you
and gains trust.
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.
Peke, 8-9 years, male, 20 pounds
Cooter is a beautiful peke with a real peke personality. He gets along with other
dogs, and is quiet. He can be stubborn, but loving. Cooter has dry eye, and will
need drops, and has lost some sight. Cooter's coat is soooo soft. He gets
around well, but loves to be with his foster mom.
Shih Tzu-mix, 8 years, female, 15 pounds
Alicia is a previous Wee dog. Her Mother passed away and her Daddy had to go
into assisted living. She came with two beds and plenty of toys! She is sweet girl.
Her foster family is getting to know her and will be reporting soon.
|Congratulations to Brady for
finding his forever home!
Poodle, 2 years, male, 14 pounds
Brady came to us from New Braunfels. In the process of putting him in a kennel,
he nipped someone so he was quarantined for 10 days. He let me pick him up
and brush him and even gave me kisses. Brady is the sweetest dog ever. He
loves to give kisses and hasn't a mean bone in his little body. He definitely got a
bad rap. He loves his foster Dad and isn't ashamed to show his love!
Peke-mix, 2-3 years, male, 14 pounds
Dale is a previous Wee dog that was adopted back in August. Unfortunately he
wasn't good with their toddler and started growling at their baby. He is a great
dog, just not good with small children. He is a handsome Peke mix, and loves to
go for walks.
Lhasa Apso, 10 years, male, 21 pounds
Mopsy and Chewy were surrendered to us by their owners. Mopsy didn't like their
toddler and started nipping at her. Chewy supposedly is fine with kids but the family
surrendered both of them because they realized they didn't have the time or energy
to care for them. They are litter mates and have been together all of their lives so we
would like to try and keep them together. However, if that is not possible we will have
to separate them. Both are 10 years old.
Lhasa Apso, 3 years, female, 17 pounds
Sadie Mae came to us as a stray from Austin Animal Center. She has a beautiful
sable colored coat. Sadie Mae is a quiet and well-mannered girl.
Pekingese, 13 years, female, 14 pounds
If you saw Cha Cha running around the house, you would never guess that she is 13
years old. She is an owner surrender that came to us from Austin Animal Center. The
dear girl had been so neglected. Cha Cha lost a few teeth, and had worms. She also
has heartworms, and has begun her treatment.. But she is house-trained, and
figured out the doggie door almost immediately. Smart girl. Loves toys, and gets
along with other dogs, but would love to be your special friend. Cha Cha should be
over her treatment sometime towards the end of March.
Shih Tzu, 5 years, female, 15 pounds
Dora came to us from Austin Animal Center. Unfortunately, she is Heartworm
Positive so will need to go through heartworm treatment. She is a cute, sweet
girl. Wee will update you when she has completed her treatment.
Shih Tzu, 1 years, male, 11.7 pounds
Things have been moving very fast and I am still trying to adjust, but I believe my life is
improving since I arrived at my foster home. My foster mom and dad are very good to
me and patient with my shortcomings since I am not good at my potty training as yet.
However, we are working on it and mom is using a belly band to help me remember not
to go in the house. Mom says I am kind of skinny and need a little more padding.
Especially since I was so matted when I went to the Crossing, they had to shave off all
my hair. When it grows out a little I am sure I will be just as cute as I am cuddly. I get
along with my foster sister, sleep with my mom and dad and really like to get close to
both of them during the night.
Peke, 1-2 years, female, 12 pounds
Bella came to us as a stray from Austin Animal Center. She is a young girl, but
has already had one litter--so we think she might be from a puppy mill. So glad
that Bella made her way to us. She had hotspots and heartworm positive. She
has a cute personality, but can be a little vocal. Bella should complete her
heartworm treatment by early April. She is a doll.
Shih Tzu-mix, 12 years old, female, 23 pounds
Gidget was surrendered to Austin Animal Center by her owners after
having her her entire life. Her foster family is getting to know her and
will be reporting soon.
