ALEXIS, N.C. - Our featured pet for this week is a Shih Tzu mix named Maggie.  She is 3-years-old and weighs 18 pounds.  Maggie should not get any bigger.  She has beautiful long silky hair which will need grooming several times a year.  Maggie was in a home with other dogs but the landlord said several had to go.  She is good with other dogs but is shy with new people.   Maggie will need at least a week to come out of her shell so please have patience with her.  She is a beautiful little girl that loves to be snuggled.  Maggie is current on his parvo/distemper vaccine, micro-chipped, spayed, heartworm negative and current rabies vaccine.

The Shih Tzu mix has long been a popular designer breed. Known for its adorable roundish face, this hybrid originated in the United States and is known to be quietly affectionate. Some of you might have a preference for certain colors when it comes to dogs and you’d be glad to know that the Shih Tzu mix does come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, cream or white, or a combination of those. Many dog lovers have a weakness for its adorable cute, floppy ears if it takes after its Shih Tzu parent.  In addition, because of their adaptability and size, they also make good apartment dogs. Just remember though, some owners describe the Shih Tzu as a shy character if not properly given the chance to socialize and mingle with other humans or dogs. So take a walk in the park, and this way you’ll both get the exercise and interaction you need.

BIG DOG Pet of the Week
Tri-County Animal Rescue BIG DOG Pet of the Week is this very overweight Australian Shepherd named Bear.  He is 8-years-old and is starting to get around much better than when he first came into our program.  Bear’s owner passed away about two months ago leaving Bear homeless.  His owner loved him with food!  Bear weighs about 115 pounds and should weigh about 50 pounds.  He is already working on his exercise/diet routine and has lost about 10-15 pounds.  He is good with everyone including other pets. Bear is looking for a walking partner.  So, if you need a man to walk around with…come on out Saturday and get Bear.  Bear is neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.  He will be looking for you this weekend!

The Australian shepherd has a great deal of stamina and is loving, bold, alert, confident, independent, smart and responsive. If it doesn't get a chance to exercise and challenge its strongly developed mental and physical activities, it is apt to become frustrated and difficult to live with. With proper exercise and training, it is a loyal, utterly devoted and obedient companion. It is reserved with strangers and has a protective nature. It may try to herd children and small animals by nipping.

Moderate Shedding: The Aussie sheds, but it’s a major event only twice a year, in the spring and fall. Frequent brushing, warm baths and thorough blow drying during that time will help keep the handfuls of hair under control. Outside of shedding season, bathe the Aussie only when he gets dirty.

If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our adoptable pets this weekend.  Many pets will be at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard this Saturday noon to 6 p.m.

Meet Turner Kuykendall, he recently turned 6-years-old. For the second year in a row, Turner asked for donations for Tri-County Animal Rescue instead of gifts for his birthday. What an amazing young man!  Turner attends Kindergarten at Pleasant Ridge Elementary. Thank you Turner!

The PTO at Robinson Elementary School in Gastonia held a donation drive for Tri-County Animal Rescue.  They provided us with dog food, cat food, dog toys, dog beds and cleaning supplies.  In addition, the Girl Scout Troop 1903 made crate beds for our dogs and cats for the donation drive. What an awesome group of caring families and kids. Kids in the picture Jane Willis, Max Williams, Maddie Porter and Meris Cable.
