Meet Pearl! She is an 8 month old Shih Tzu Mix. Pearl is a very petite girl weighing in at 9lbs and as sweet as they come. Buffalo Pug was asked by a very compassionate animal control officer to assist her with removing dogs from an uneducated backyard breeder who's home had become overrun with dogs.
We contacted the owner and she willingly surrendered 4 of her dogs to us. It was clear that she loved all of them but did not have the time or ability to give each one what they deserved. We picked them up and spent hours grooming them. They were matted and smelled terrible but underneath all that fur and dirt emerged the sweetest little shih tzu mixes we have ever seen!
Pearl, like her siblings has not been socialized and seems to be the most meek. She slowly has begun to approach people and although she may never be the outgoing type, she has more than enough love and devotion for a family that will love her back. She likes to snuggle and be brushed and gets along wonderfully with other dogs. She would do best with older children as she is easily frightened. She is still just a pup and her foster family is working on housebreaking her. Her forever family must be willing to continue on with her training. She is not used to wearing a collar or a leash, but has been making great strides in just the last few days and is always eager to go outside. She loves to lay in the sunshine and roll in the grass. Pearl will definitely make a great addition to any family that has the love and patience this sweet little one needs!!
