Louisiana (Louise)

Shih Tzu

Available for adoption!

Louisiana aka Louise aka Miss Weezie is a very special lady, who came from a previously harder life. She is very fond of her people, but has never been taught how to appropriately show affection. She loves to snuggle and be petted, but is very much a DIVA, and would like it on her terms only. She would love nothing more than to be the center of your world, and loves to be wherever you are. She has a funny walk because of her knees, but no evidence that they are slowing her down!

She will likely need a more experienced dog owner, as she does have some behavioral tendencies that we are working with her on. She is potty trained and very smart, but is still suffering from some emotional trauma from her previous life.

She does currently live with dogs and cats, but I believe she would be more comfortable as an only pet who can be spoiled.

She will need lifelong medication for her eye issues but is very good at receiving her medications.

She has been settling very nicely into the routine of her foster life, and is looking for someone who may have the patience to help her adjust slowly.

She has a big heart and is full of love, and has improved so much since coming into our home. She is so spunky and full of life and she’s hoping you may have room in your heart to help her really find her place and confidence!
Louisiana will need a very patient owner, who understands that everything will be on her terms. She does accept her eye medications with no fuss, and she always does well at the vet. She still has inappropriate reactions to certain stimuli, and may never be a warm cuddly, loves to be held/touched type of dog. But having said that, she does want attention, and can be very sweet!

She is not perfect, and will not be the perfect dog for everyone, but we know there is someone that she would be the perfect dog for. Could that be you?
