Meet Eloise

Eloise is a 7 yr old, female, Shih Tzu/Terrier mix. Eloise was rescued from the shelter where she came in with many health issues, including KCS (dry eye), eye and ear infection, mammary gland tumors, matted fur, missing incisors, moderate dental tartar, a fractured lower right canine and a severe skin infection. Her eyes have vision problems, like dirty windows and will require re-wetting (bought over the counter) to keep her eyes moist.
She was also extremely matted when she arrived at the shelter. They had to place her under anesthesia to shave her down. They also treated her for the eye and ear infection, gave her a dental cleaning, started her on her on antibiotics for the allergies and removed the mammary tumors, a number of skin tags, blood cysts, and other growths. The skin growths were biopsied and were negative. The mammary tumors came back as mammary carcinoma - low grade (grade 1 out of 3). They did a second surgery to remove more tissue to get clean margins. They found some more subcutaneous masses which were removed and sent for biopsy which were negative. Her severe skin allergy has been treated with visits to a Vet Dermatologist and she is doing much better now.

It's obvious that Eloise's care has been neglected and she was used to make puppies. Despite her condition, she is a sweet little girl who just likes to be petted. She sleeps most of the day and snores fairly often -awake or sleeping. She does notice when you're gone and yelps a bit but not very loud. She loves walks and sniffing around the neighborhood and sounds like a little piglet when she sniffs. She is ok with other dogs but since she can't see too well she does growl and lunge at dogs that get too close .

We would love to find Eloise a forever home where she can experience love and care. She has a lot of life left in her and we hope someone sees her and wants to ope up their heart and home to Eloise.
