Gucci is an 8 year old maltese shih tzu mix boy. He came to us as an owner surrender after his human could no longer keep him due to personal reasons. We were told he had frequent UTIs, which was fine. After we rescued him, we took him to the vet and found out that this sweet boy had uncontrolled diabetes and pancreatitis. After that, he was hospitalized and we got it all under control. Pancreatitis was resolved. Gucci’s diabetes is something that requires daily medication and management. The rapid, multilevel amount of changes was hard on Gucci. This involved multiple lifestyle changes, new humans, and his world went upside down. All in all, Gucci handled everything like a champion. 

Gucci, LOVES food and people. He is also house broken, dog friendly, and enjoys making dog friends. However, we do not know how he is with cats- he hasn’t been around them. His fosters are incredibly dedicated to him, but unable to manage his daily needs with his condition. Gucci is looking for someone patient and home often. Are you retired? Work from home? In need of a little dude that needs your love? Then, he could be the one for you! Gucci is very affectionate and kind, with a big personality for his little 14 lb body. He lets you know what he does and does not like! You won’t ever be lonely with him! Gucci is apartment appropriate, but loves a home with a yard.
