Dusty! Just reminds you of that sweet granddad from the south. With is perpetually irresistible grumpy face, he fools you into thinking hes a grinch. However, he is the funniest and most lovely 12 year old shih tzu lhaso mix. This senior boy is extremely friendly with everyone and easy to handle. He loves food and just hangs out with people. Generally, he loves people and ignores dogs and rabbits (his foster home has both). Honestly, Dusty would be just great with cats too.

Dusty is housebroken and enjoys going on walks. His leash manners are impeccable! All in all, sweet Dusty is a low maintenance gentleman that cant wait for his retirement. At which point, he plans to eat, nap, cuddle, and breathe the fresh air! Great for an older, family, or adult home!

Dusty would do well in an apartment or home. He is respectful of his neighbors and doesn’t bark at all. We do believe he has limited vision and hearing. This does not get him down, he is highly adaptable, intelligent, and travels well! This boy picks up on what you ask of him quickly, especially if you have an edible incentive for him!

Dusty came to us when his human went from hospice at home to the hospital. Unfortunately, his human was unable to care for him. Luckily, Dusty had a team of angels behind him. The hospice workers would walk and feed him. Once it was clear that this was unfair to Dusty, he was surrendered into our care.
